This  isn't new, but it sure is good  reading.......

Will Rogers was  a Cherokee from Oklahoma. He died in a plane crash with Wylie Post  in 1935, was probably the greatest political sage this country has  ever known.  Enjoy the following:

1.  Never  slap a man who's chewing tobacco.

2.  Never kick a  cow chip on a hot day.

3.  There are 2 theories to  arguing with a man...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.  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 there.

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.


First ~ Eventually you will reach a point when  you stop lying about your age and start bragging about  it.

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, t/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 comfortable.

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.


"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body,  but rather to skid in sideways - glass of wine in one hand - chocolate in the other -body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO, WHAT A RIDE!!!"
