Everyone has some advice to give….

Advice, we hear it all the time. Old wives tales, doctor’s advice, family is usually full of advice. Sometimes we seek it, sometimes it seeks us. Give or take, it’s always a good idea to listen to the wisdom of our elders and learn from their experiences.  I got this email recently  An Old Farmer’s Advice, and so much of it hits the nail on the head as they say so I’m going to share it with you today. I hope you get a good laugh out of it and also can agree with some of it like I did.



An Old Farmer’s Advice:


*Keep skunks at a distance.

*Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.*

* A bumble bee is considerably faster than any tractor.

* Words that soak into your ears are whispered…not yelled.

* Meanness don’t jes’ happen overnight.

* Forgive your enemies. It messes up their heads.*

* Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.

* It don’t take a very big person to carry a grudge.

* You cannot unsay a cruel word.

* Every path has a few puddles.

* When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.*

* The best sermons are lived, not preached.

* 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 bothering you none.

* Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a Rain dance.

* If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin’.

* Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.

* The biggest troublemaker you’ll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin’.

* Always drink upstream from the herd.

* Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.

* Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin’ it back in.

* If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around.

* Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply.

    As any old farm girl would know it!!
    A bumble bee is considerably faster than any tractor!
    Plow around the stump, and don’t carry more irrigation tubes than you can see over, and water snakes are still scary even if they can’t hurt you! Oh and yes, you can bale up a raccoon while baling hay. He will be fighting mad while trying to set him free!


  3. That’s funny! I’ve done all of the above except it was a pheasant I caught in a hay bale! I miss living on the farm.
