The following quotes are supposedly by comedian Will Rogers, and since someone shared them with me, I felt the need to “pay it forward.” Surely someone out there (like Steen Dalton) needs a laugh today.
Never slap a man who’s chewing tobacco.
Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.
There are two theories to arguing with a woman – neither works.
Never miss a good chance to shut up.
Always drink upstream from the herd.
If you find yourself in a hole, quit digging.

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. Moral: When you’re full of bull, keep your mouth shut!
Have a great weekend.
