    My great grandpa once told all of us boys "never stick it in a mouse trap and never give your heart to a woman.......they are one and the same. You'll regret both. One ALOT quicker than the other."

    Never fight an old person. If he's old and still fighting, he probably knows what he's doing.

    Don't be afraid to try, even if you make a mistake. From mistakes you learn 2x as much.


    Pain is always the best teacher. :D

    Be quick to listen and slow to speak.

    Mom told me once "you should always be friends with your boss as long as you remember that they're still your boss"

    And a good one from my uncle "you'll never find true love in a bar but they make condoms to help you handle anything else you'll find there."

    Your spinning your wheels. What direction are they gong to be pointing when you finally get traction?

    Not really advice, but words that make me think about the consequences of my actions.

    My mother said to me as a young man about love.

    "Love is like bread, it's best if made fresh daily".

    I read this yesterday. The difference between complete and finished. Although dictionary definition are the same, what I read summed it up perfectly.

    (Paraphrased)
    When you marry the woman of your dreams, you are complete. When you find out she's the woman from hell, your finished. And when your wife from hell catches you with the woman of your dreams you're completely finished.

    Don't eat yellow snow.

    Never pick your noise on a bumpy dirt road.

    Never spit into the wind

    On picking noses...

    You almost always automatically open your mouth while digging nuggets.

    Never, EVER, pick your noise while laying on your back. If it falls off your finger, guess where it's going?

    It's easier to make a quick nickel then a slow dime.

    There was a neighbor, who used this phrase often; when selling vegetables from his garden.

    Never ride with a naked cab driver.
    Always count your change.
    And from an old Captain in my first Sheriff's office job; " Remember that badge aint big enough to hide behind".

    From my late father; 1) Never sleep with someone you would be ashamed to be seen with out in public the next day.... 2) Marry your best friend. You will not regret it!! (BTW... 19 years into my marriage so far and he was right on the money with that one)... and 3) If I wouldn't trust them... YOU shouldn't either!!
    God rest his soul. I sure do miss him.

    And experience is something you gain about five seconds after you REALLY needed it...

    1. Never pay poker with anyone named after a major city.
    2. Never eat at a place called Mom's- unless the only other place is named EATS
    3. Never share a bed or foxhole with anyone crazier than you are.
    4. If it is worth shooting, it is worth shooting twice.
    5. If you can be seen, you can be hit.
