Amore e pianto, vivono accanto

Reflections from the Seat of an Old Tractor

An Old Farmer’s Advice ~ Thank you Paul 🙂

– 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 just 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 and 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.

– Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, and leave the rest to God.

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

And,
funny dog
