Fill it up with "Ethyl". (term for high octane gas with tetra-ethyl lead).

Put your lunch in the "Ice box". (Before electric refrigerators, people used ice boxes).

Grandma called aluminum foil....silver paper.
Mom's reaction to certain pricing....higher than a cat's back.
She also said....good stores have good sales.
other Grandma's advice when someone bemoaned mistakes/missed opportunities in the past....turn around and face front.

Heavens, I just realized these aren't all obsolete expressions. Some are.

Hot off the press.....from the news wire....maybe it'll be in the afternoon mail delivery....can I use your Dictaphone?
