What are your favorite old fashioned phrases?

I love hearing/using phrases that are no longer in vogue. I am particularly looking for things that you might hear your grandparents/great aunt say.
For an idea of what I'm looking for, here are a few of my favorites (courtesy of my delightful family members):
- She doesn't know if she's on foot or on horseback.
- I feel like I've been rode hard and put away wet.
(The fact that both of the above are equine related is purely coincidental.)
