1.)  Never slap a man who’s chewing tobacco.
2.)  Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.
3.)  Always drink upstream from the herd.
4.)  The quickest way to double your money is to fold it and put it back in your pocket.
5.)  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.
6.)  If you’re riding’ ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it’s still there.
7.)  Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier’n puttin’ it back.
8.)  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.
9.)  Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
A.)  The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.
B.)  When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra.
C.)  You know you are getting old when every thing either dries up or leaks.
D.)  One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young.
E.)  One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been.
F.)  Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.
10.)  If you don’t learn to laugh at trouble, you won’t have anything to laugh at when you are old.
