A Cowboy's Guide To Life

Harold, the guy that services the copy machine at work gave me this today. So...I thought I'd share these words of "wisdom" with those who visit my journal.

1.Your fences need to be horse high, pig tight and bull strong.

2.Life ain't about how fast you run, or how high you climb, but how well you bounce.

3.Keep skunks and bankers and lawyers at a distance.(sorry if that offends any bankers or lawyers.)

4.Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

5.A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.

6.Meanness don't jest happen overnight.

7.Forgive your enemies.  It messes up their heads.

8.Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.

9.It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge.

10.You cannot unsay a cruel word.

11.Every path has a few puddles.

12.When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.

13.Don't judge folks by their relatives.

14.Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

15.Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.

16.The easiest way to eat crow is while it's still warm, 'cause the colder it gets, the harder it is to swaller.

17.If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'.

18.It don't take a genius to spot a goat in a flock of sheep.

19.Always drink up stream from the herd.

20. Don't squat with your spurs on.

21. Never fry bacon naked.

22. If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around.

Until next time.......Linda
