Ruby Jeans Jackson, a native of Tennessee, a retired Delta Air Lines flight attendant, and a wife to a retired NFL player, has completed her new book “My Grandma’s Old Sayings from A to Z and More”: a sagacious collection of idioms and their meanings that provide insight to the mind and guide people toward wisdom and knowledge.

Author Jackson showcases both well-known and atypical sayings from immemorial times that are still prevalent in the modern world: “Old sayings, idioms, and synonyms are as Americana as apple pie. They are a part of our history and culture. ‘My Grandma’s Old Sayings from A to Z and More’ is a collection of over eight hundred old sayings and their meanings that took the author five years to collect.

Growing up in a small southern town in the 1950s and ’60s, old sayings were a way of communicating. Although times were hard, people didn’t complain. It was a time when people said what they meant and meant what they said. They loved their neighbors. When a neighboring family hurt, all families hurt. When asked how things were going, the answer was always ‘fair to middling.’ When they parted ways at the end of the day, it was always ‘I’ll see you tomorrow if the good Lord’s willing and the creek doesn’t rise.’ The author’s grandma was a God-fearing woman who was full of joy. She loved to talk, and old sayings were part of her everyday conversations. She had a saying for every situation, for good times and bad times.

The ‘And More’ at the end of the book is food for thought. There are fun words and phrases, dos and don’ts, sayings for good luck, sayings for bad luck, superstitions, and little words with big meanings.

Now you can join the conversation and have fun! Remember the old saying, ‘To make an omelet, you'll have to crack some eggs.’”
