Poking around the ol' hard drive

I was looking around my hard drive for a file, and I ran across this oldie but goodie. Enjoy.

Cowboy's Guide To Life
  • Don't squat with your spurs on.
  • Don't interfere with something that ain't botherin' you none.
  • Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.
  • The easiest way to eat crow is while it's still warm. The colder it gets, the harder it is to swaller.
  • If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'.
  • If it don't seem like it's worth the effort, it probably ain't.
  • It don't take a genius to spot a goat in a flock of sheep.
  • The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with watches you shave his face in the mirror every morning.
  • Never ask a barber if you need a haircut.
  • If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around.
  • Don't worry about bitin' off more'n you can chew; your mouth is probably a whole lot bigger'n you think.
  • Always drink upstream from the herd.
  • Generally, you ain't learnin' nothin' when your mouth's a jawin'.
  • Tellin' a man to git lost and makin' him do it are two entirely different propositions.
  • If you're ridin' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it's still there with ya.
  • Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.
  • When you give a personal lesson in meanness to a critter or to a person, don't be surprised if they learn their lesson.
  • 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 than 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 sure crucial to know what it was.
  • The quickest way to double your money is to fold it over and put it back into your pocket.
  • And, never, ever, miss a good chance to shut up.
I don't do so well with that last one, huh?
