Old Farmer's Advice

I know this is not craft-related, but I saw this on one of my friend's Facebook posts.  I loved it because so much of it is true.  Just wanted to share it with you...Enjoy!!

Old Farmer's Advice :

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 bothering 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 judgment 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.

28. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.

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

I was going to list off all of the points that had me chuckling and/or laughing, but there are too many. Certainly my favourite (ok, one of!) is the last one!
These need to be printed off and framed!
