Nobody’s Email: Will Roger’s Remarkable Life Observations

Nobody Gets Email

I love some of these, and I am seriously thinking about tattooing number 4 on my right hand.
Enjoy!

****************************
Will Rogers, who died in a 1935 plane crash in Alaska with bush pilot Wiley Post, was one of the greatest political country/cowboy sages this country has ever known. Some of his sayings worth remembering:
****
1. Never slap a man who’s chewing tobacco.
****Owl
2. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.
****
3. There are two theories to arguing with a woman. 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 into 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.old people
Will Rogers on GROWING OLDER…
First ~ Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about you’re 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, think of Algebra.
Fifth ~ You know you are getting old when every thing  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’s 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 and relaxed.
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’re old.

    • Yes, wouldn’t it be wonderful to have every pet you ever had waiting there for you?  And to think, he was before Bob Hope.
