: When I was growing up, my dad often said "that's older than Methuselah" or "Back when Hector was a pup" I've heard the first one said many times. The second I've never heard anyone else say. Has anyone else?

Yes, it's an old one. Typing "hector" in the Search Archives window will bring you some previous comments by others who heard it or read about it.
