Cowboy Wisdom


I've been neglecting the blog a lot--but I have a good reason! I've run out of things to blog about, LOL. Anyway, found this on one of my loops a couple of weeks back and decided it was blog-worthy.


Cowboy's Guide to Life:

~ Don't squat with your spurs on.

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

~ _Don't interfere with something that ain't botherin' you none

.

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

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

~ If it don't seem like it's worth the effort, it probably ain't.

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

~ Never ask a barber if you need a haircut.

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

~ Don't worry about bitin' off more'n you can chew; your mouth is probably a
whole lot bigger'n you think.

~ Always drink upstream from the herd!


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

~ Generally, you ain't learnin' nothing when your mouth's a-jawin'.

~ Tellin' a man to git lost and makin' him do it are two entirely different
propositions.

~ If you're _ridin' ahead of the herd, take a look
back every now and then to make sure it's still there with ya.

~ When you give a personal lesson in meanness to a critter or to a person,
don't be surprised if they learn their lesson.

~ When you're throwin' your weight around, be ready to have it thrown around
by somebody else.

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

~ Always take a good look at what you're about to eat. It's not so important
to know what it is, but it's sure crucial to know what it was.

~ The quickest way to double your money is to fold it over and put it back
into your pocket.

~ Never miss a good chance to shut up.
