14 Pieces Of Advice From A Farmer…

A few weeks ago I got an email from my uncle with some advice from a farmer – a number of them are very sound advice:

    • Keep skunks and bankers and lawyers 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 jes’ happen overnight.
    • Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.
    • 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 botherin’ you none.
    • If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin’.
    • The biggest troublemaker you’ll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin’.
    • Always drink upstream from the herd.

Which one:

  • Made you stop and think?
  • Made you chuckle?
  • Will you listen too?

I look forward to reading your comments.
