: : : What does the phrase "kick off the moss" mean?
: : Never heard it. I am guessing that it has to do with mossback, as in someone with outdated ideas. See

: Or "a rolling stone gathers no moss"... If you've been in the same place to long, you may need to get rid of the moss that has gathered.
Or you might refer to the expression, "He doesn't let any moss grow under his feet." I guess whenever he thinks it's starting to, he kicks off the moss.
