April Blizzards Bring May Lizards

Sayings, wives-tales, wise-tales? This just has me cracking up. I’ve heard of, “April showers bring May flowers,” but this Lizard one is too much! In the Midwest-States, I’ve heard some great ones. Most recently was, “The snow falls on a Robin’s tail three times.”–Like Winter is not over until that happens. People are counting. Seriously. And for the record; this past weekend’s snow was the third (and hopefully the last) snow of “Winter”.

Meanwhile, my family down south is overheating and feeding the squirrel ice water to cool her off. My dad said, “The moon in June means July will be dry.”–Not sure about that one. (Remember the squirrel my sister rescued? She’s still doing well)–“You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink”. Another Southerner saying, “If it was a snake it would have bit me”.

Für den deutschen Geist schmelzen: “A penny saved from hard work is a penny saved for a day you don’t work.”

(Ostpreußisch: “Grosz do grosza, a będzie kokosza.”–“A penny saved is a penny earned.”)

Or a personal favorite of mine, “Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.”

What are some old sayings you guys have?
