"If ice freezes on high water, the water will come back and get it."

"Go back and lick your calf over again."

This reminds me of my grandmother-in-law who, after visiting my husband and

me for the first time, said of me in a later discussion, that I'd "been

around and wore shoes." This was said as a compliment and I defined it as

referring to someone who had more experience or sophistication. I've never

heard it before or since. Comments?
