    Default An old Farmer's Words of Wisdom we could all live by.......

    My neighbors e-mail me anything related to tractors/farming now... sorry if this is old news. I found it very true.

    Life from the seat of a tractor..


    Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.

    Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.

    Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

    A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere (but not a kubota!) tractor.

    Words that soak into your ears are whispered?...not yelled.

    Meanness don't just happen overnight.

    Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads.

    You should 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 and 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.

    Gettin' 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,

    Speak kindly, and leave the rest to God.

    And the best one....

    Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you!

    I hadn't seen it before, but a lot of it rings true, well except for the kubota outrunning a bee; trust me on that; now I have cabs.

    All I did was go to the SEARCH section on TBN and typed in the info that I included in the post and it came up. Hope this helps. Perhaps TripleR used a different method. If my suggestion doesn't work, please try reaching him. I know it worked for me. Good Luck.

    I used the Search function and on the right went to the box "Search by User Name", typed in brin and checked "Find Threads Started by this User", it is a drop down box.
