OLE' YELLERDAWG SAYS



* 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 Mazda Pickup
* 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.
*If you beat around the bush...you get a beat up bush.
* Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to the Goddess.-- Don't pick a fight with an old woman. If she's too old to fight...she'll just shoot you.

These should be embroidered on a pillow.

I always liked: "Don't pick on an old person. She can't outrun you, so she'll have to kill you."

Don't judge people by their relatives' houses either...this place is a mess but I swear I'm a good person. Also, long time no see.

Work your fingers to the bone, and what do you get? BONY FINGERS!
That's from a song. I think it's appropriate.

My old teacher Charlie Brown use to say
"Better to remain silent and have people think you're a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt."

If this is just a hint of JackieSue's list of wisdom - I can't wait to see it.

These are pretty damn profound and even come wrapped in a smile.
