    I have these books, and have enjoyed them over the years, titles like Horse Sense, Laughing Stock, and Just One Thing After Another. Hope you enjoy these excerpts from the books. Someone had put them in a mail, and I thought I'd share today.

    * Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight
    And bull-strong.


    *Keep skunks and bankers 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 bothering 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.

    *Never fight with a woman. You'll lose.


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

    Thank you all for responding I haven't been around here in quite some time and it's nice for you to ask about us! I have the best bunch of kids I've had in a while, I have ONE hellion class of 29 Jr's this year that are good people but just can't keep their mouth shut, but if that's the worst they do to me then i'm blessed!

    Everything is going okay, just started posting every now and then again, and I have missed you all!
