A cowboys' guide to a happy life.
1. Never kick a fresh cow chip on a hot day.
2. There's two theories to arguin' with a woman. Neither one works.
3. Don't worry about bitin' off more than you can chew. Your mouth is
probably a whold lot bigger'n you think.
4. if you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin'
somebody else's dog around.
5. Never ask a man the size of his spread.
6. If you find yourself in a hole the first thing to do is stop diggin'.
7. Never smack a man who's chewin' tobacco.
8. It don't take a genius to spot a goat in a flock of sheep.
9. Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad
10. Always drink upstream from the herd.
11. Never drop your gun to hug a grizzly.
12. If you're ridin' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then
to make sure it's still there.
13.When you give a lesson in meanness to a critter or a person, don't be
surprised if they learn their lesson.
14. When you're throwin' your weight around, be ready to have it thrown

15. Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier 'n puttin' it back.
16. 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 critical to know what it was.
17. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it over and put it in
18. 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:

And last but not least:
19. Never miss a good chance to shut up.
