I'm turning in!
Save me a marshmallow and a Coors Light. I'll see you crazy kids before the weekend is through!

REMEMBER: DON'T EAT PAINT CHIPS.

That is my sage advice for the evening.

WAIT A MINUTE

What the hell is your thread title from? My dad says this all the time and I thought he was just being...my dad.

then again, I've learned over time that most of his weird phrases are song lyrics, movie lines, etc.

It was an old movie starring Ronald Reagan.

Uh, before he was president, of course. When he was president it was bedtime for Ronnie. ;-)

Yes indeed. And Bonzo was his monkey/sidekick.

Hollywood has been seriously lacking on movies featuring primates lately. What will our political candidates pledge to do about this dilemma?

It's pop culture, but older. Flat pop perhaps...

Ole Ron made some good films. God bless his heart.

My dad was similar also, only he'd say, "Hit the hay."

He wouldn't say, "Go to bed," or, "Good night, sleep tight."

Always, and I mean ALWAYS, he'd say, "Hit the hay."

I heard it thousands of times, and never once did we live close to a barn or near a hay stack.

And you know what's really weird? When I tell my children to "Hit the hay," they know exactly what I mean every time and go straight to bed. :)

My dad always sang, "Goodnight Sweetheart," to me. Every night, when it was time to go to bed. :)

No, the doo-wap version by the Spaniels. http://youtube.com/watch?v=QzC1xWX2dIA

But it's not too far off from Sha Na Na.

The other thing he tells us to do is hit the hay.

Hmm.
