Subject: RE: BS: Things Mom used to say
Although my father worked as a hospital cook and we weren't well off my mother aspired to be better than 'working class'. Both she and my father had the intelligence but not the opportunities for education. We went to a church full of well off professional people.
So it was a bit of a shock to my well brought up ears when she came out with things like

"If you can't be good, be careful"

"Winter draws on
Winter draws onBe sure you've got your flanelette
Winter drawers on"
