Cowboy Wisdom ~

I just love “homily” on the range ~

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin’.

Never smack a man who’s chewin’ tobacco.

It don’t take a genius to spot a goat in a flock of sheep.

Never ask a barber if he thinks you need a haircut.

If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

Never drop your gun to hug a grizzly.

If you’re ridin’ ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it’s still there.

There’s two theories to arguin’ with a woman. Neither one works.

When you’re throwin’ your weight around, be ready to have it thrown around by somebody else.

Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier ‘n puttin’ it back.

Always take a good look at what you’re about to eat. It’s not so important to know what it is, but it’s good to know what it was.

Never miss a good chance to shut up.

Never squat down when wearing your spurs.
