{Cowboy Wisdom from Idaho}


I saw this and loved it so I am gonna share it.

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

2-Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.

3-Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

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

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

6-Meanness don't jes' 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-The best sermons are lived, not preached.

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

15-Don't judge folks by their relatives.

16-Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

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

18-Don't interfere with somethin' that ain't botherin' you none.

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

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

21-Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.

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

23-Always drink upstream from the herd.

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

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

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

27-Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.

Amen.
