: I'm trying to find another expression that means a long but indefinate time - like the cows come home, but not this phrase

When pigs fly (this actually goes back to the middle Ages).
When hell freezes over.
It'll be a long, hot day in the middle of December when XXXX.

Those mean an infinitely long wait, but "till the cows come home" is often used that way, too.
