I came across someone's "ALL I NEED TO KNOW I LEARNED ON THE CATTLE RANGE." Thought it was pretty valuable. 1. Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco. 2. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day. 3. There are 2 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 in your pocket. 8. There are three kinds of men: - The ones who learn by reading. - The few who learn by observation. - The rest of them have to touch the electric fence to see if it's really on. [Note to my family of origin here: Does this remind you of our farm? How many times did we touch that fence to see if it was on?] 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.
