Every summer growing up, my family would take a seven hour drive from the Chicagoland area to Southern Illinois to visit my dad's family. On those long trips we would pass miles and miles of corn. The saying goes, "knee-high by the fourth of July", which was a way of measuring how well the crops were growing. My dad would take a puff from his pipe, exhale, and mistakenly say, "The corn is knee-high by July the fourth." As kids, you can be sure that we wouldn't forget it, we always laughed and laughed, repeated it a million times, and it became our new saying, even to this day. So funny what one remembers from childhood.
