A FARMERS ADVICE

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

Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.

Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

A bumble bee is considerably faster than a Massey Ferguson
tractor.

Words that soak into your ears are whispered....not
yelled.

Meanness don't just happen overnight.

Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads.

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

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

You cannot unsay a cruel word.

Every path has a few puddles.

When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.

The best sermons are lived, not preached.

Most of the stuff people worry about,
ain't never gonna happen anyway.

Don 't judge folks by their relatives.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Live a good and honorable life, then when you get older and think back, you'll
enjoy it a second time.

Don 't interfere with
somethin' that ain't bothering you
none.

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

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

Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.

The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with, watches
you from the mirror every
mornin'.



Always drink upstream from the herd.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a
lotta that comes from bad judgment.

Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole
lot easier than
puttin' it back
in.

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

Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill
you.




Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, and leave the rest to God.

Oh, Rook, that's so funny. I was just telling my husband how history is written in the hindsight view. i.e.Someone goes skydiving and it's successful "Oh, my he/she is such a brave person".Skydiving trip NOT so successful............"what was that idiot thinking."Indeed if not at first successful, skydiving is NOT for you! hahahahahaThanks for your comments everyone...I think there's a little something in here for everyone.Indeed, Evelyn Rose....DO NOT mess with a Farmer. LOL
