"The old bull silences the herd."

Don't know if that was ever a popular phrase, but it's a keeper.

"Best thing since canned bread!"

Yeah, I know, but I use it just to see if folks are paying attention. Plus it really is a thing.

"Not worth a hill of beans"

My grandfather used to say that a lot. A lot! LOL

One he didn't say, but should come back anyway:

"I'll lock up the silver!"

To be said when family/friends/loved ones/riff-raff are expected over to visit, e.g., "Tall Guy and BillCarson are stopping by tonight."

"I'll lock up the silver!"

I knew that. Did you not think that I knew that? I definitely knew that. Otherwise, I wouldn't have jockeyed heavily for its return to frequent usage.
