Never squat with your spurs on...............

Will Rogers, who died in a 1935 plane crash, is thought to be one of the
greatest political sages this country has ever known.
Some of his sayings:
1. Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco.
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.
First ~Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your 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 everything 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.
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.
My darling buddy Georgina sent this to me and I needed to share with you. I laughed so hard and wanted to give you the same opportunity. Happy Weekend my lovelies.

  1. I have to say that this has indeed made me laugh although I agree with everything here. Have a great weekend my dear Oma Linda. S&S

  2. These are hilarious! He was an astute humorist on a level with Mark Twain, for sure.

  3. Lol, loved it! Had to send it to my parents and gran :oD

  4. I adore that man's wit an clarity about sizing up a situation. He is high on the list of persons living or dead I would love to share a desert island with.

  5. Will Rogers was so great! he could tell jokes and spin his lariat at the same time. I love these, Linda, they made me laugh! Good, good post!

  6. Thanks for sharing, Oma Love, because I laughed like a loon, too. Then I thought about squatting while wearing spurs and my butt cheeks hurt a bit lol

  7. I have been in love with Will Rogers since I was a young girl. He was (to me) the Mark Twain of our era!

    This post has to be the best post ever! I especially LOVED the "About Growing Older ..." it is all so very true! Except for the aches and pains, memory loss, too many signs of elder age ... I REALLY like it! It is, indeed, very very comrortable...
