Will Rogers..

never appreciated Will Rogers when I was young. Now I am having second thoughts.
I'm not one who can brag about having experienced everything, but I did have an electric fence once and that taught me all I ever needed to know

A few lines of "wisdom" from Will Rogers (a story
teller and political pundit of sorts, lived about 70 years ago which just goes to show that the only thing that changes with time is , us!

1. Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco.
2. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.
3. There are 2 theories [of how to argue] with a
woman...neither works.
4. Never miss a good chance to shut up.
5. Always drink upstream from the herd.
6. If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.
7. The quickest way to double your money is to fold
it and put it back in your pocket.
8. There are three kinds of men: The ones that learn
by reading, and also the few who learn by
observation. The rest of them have to pee on the
electric fence and find out for themselves.
9. Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of
that comes from bad judgment.
10. If you're riding "ahead of the herd," take a
look back every now and then to make sure it's still
11. Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot
easier'n puttin' it back.
12. After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion
felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until
a hunter came along and shot him. The moral: When
you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.

Some comments from Rogers about growing old:

First ~ Eventually you will reach a point when you
stop lying about your age and start bragging about
Second ~ The older we get, the fewer things seem
worth waiting in line for.
Third ~ Some people try to turn back their
odometers. Not me, I want people to know "why" I
look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of
the roads weren't paved.
Fourth ~ When you are dissatisfied and would like to
go back to youth, think of Algebra.
Fifth ~ You know you are getting old when everything
either dries up or leaks.
Sixth ~ I don't know how I got over the hill without
getting to the top.
Seventh ~ One of the many things no one tells you
about aging is that it is such a nice change from
being young.
Eighth ~ One must wait until evening to see how
splendid the day has been.
Ninth ~ Being young is beautiful, but being old is
Tenth ~ Long ago when men cursed and beat the ground
with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today it's
called golf.
And finally ~ If you don't learn to laugh at
trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at when
you are old.

Thanks Doug G.
Some good advice here I think
