THE OLD FARMER’S ADVICE

Great words to live by:

    • Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.
    • Keep skunks and bankers and lawyers at a distance.
    • Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.
    • A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.
    • Words that soak into your ears are whispered…not yelled.
    • Meanness don’t jes’ 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, 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 botherin’ 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.
    • Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.

 

Never forget, it is always about the whinny.

Now, let me hear it, WHINNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNY!!
