Howdy Everyone,

Welcome to the new forum for Unfamilar Words, Phrases or Expressions!  It seems that things were getting mighty crowded on the McCain Front Porch, so we now have our own meetin' place in the McCain Ranch section of the messageboard.  

So gather round the ol' crackerbarrel for some down-home talk about the unsual words, phrases, or expressions that puzzle you as you watch The Rifleman.

The previous posts have been moved over, so if you are new to the site, be sure and take a look at what we've already discovered.  

This forum can only be successful with your help.  Please post those words and expressions that are new or different.  I'm happy to do the research or we can all put our heads together and come up with a meaning.

For example, did you know that crackerbarrel is an American  word that orginated in 1875-1880 and means the informal discussions of people gathered in an old-fashioned general store?

So tune up those ears and listen carefully the next time you're watching The Rifleman!

Judy M

I was watching Gunsmoke today and Doc and Chester was talking. Chester wasn't happy with what the doc had to say and Chester told him to go take a pill.

I thought that was cute. :grinning-cowboy:

Wonder if that was a 'little blue pill' or just a pill

I really enjoy Chester, Festus and Doc together. They are so much fun together!

"Son Of A Gun Stew" - I still haven't gotten over that one since CowGirl
posted the recipe.

Son of a Gun Stew was also served on "GunSmoke". Matt and the outlaw were excited to eat it like Micah was. Ugh! :shutup:

Not sure if any of you are aware of this cookbook.

The All American Cookbook

Here you can see Chuck and Micah's recipes and it's not 'Son of a Gun Stew!'

Besides the recipes there is a lot of fun going on in this book and games.

Oh My - Is that little boy with the rifle really Chuck Connors?

Rifleman Fried CatFish - I use that recipe - but with perch. Yum-Yum! :grinning-cowboy:

I don't think I'd like crushed corn flakes in my eggs. 😆

Lucasboy is a friend of mine. He bought me this cookbook as a gift. Lucasboy was his screen name.

I'm not too fond of crushed corn flakes in my eggs either.

Eight Hours to Die - I learned how to heat up a forge.
"If you haven't got those coals hot enough by the time I get back from school Pa, I'll show you how to do it," said Mark.

Also, how to get loose when tied to a wagon wheel. :confusedcowboy:

Eggs are one of the few foods I just cannot stomach. For me, the smell of eggs is like the taste of liver. 😝!
