More Pappy-isms

My Dad reminded me of a few more Pappy-isms:

When Pappy agreed with something you’d said he would respond with “Darn Tottin!”

Pappy loved good food and would express it by saying that he “didn’t eat to live, but lived to eat.” He ate bread at every meal, his “Pusher.”

When he passed a cemetery, he’d always asked the uninformed in the car, “I wonder how many folks are dead in that cemetery?” The uninformed would make a quick estimate of head stones and offer a response to which Pappy would reply, “No, all of them!”
