    Common Sense

    Common sense as explained by Will Roger's.

    Simple but Brilliant and full of truths!

    Will Rogers, who died in a 1935plane crash with his best friend, Wylie Post, was probably the greatest political sage this country ever has known.

    1. Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco.

    2. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.

    3.. There are two 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 into your pocket.

    8. There are three kinds of men: The ones that learn by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves.

    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.

    11. Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier'n puttin' it back.

    12. 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: When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.


    First ~ Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

    Second ~ The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

    Third ~ Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me; I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way, and some of the roads weren't paved.

    Fourth ~ When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra.

    Fifth ~ You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

    Sixth ~ I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.

    Seventh ~ One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young.

    Eighth ~One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been.

    Ninth ~ Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

    Tenth ~ Long ago, when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today it's called golf.

    And, finally ~ If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at when you are old.

    This may be too basic, but does anyone have thoughts on the wisdom of getting back into serious riding -- and horse ownership -- after 40 years out of the saddle? Thanks!

    Like them. But growing older, stop lying about your age. So old people say they are younger XD.

    Most elderly people are proud of their age.

    Considering YOUR age I am guessing you feel anyone over 45 is old and if you do, you are in fact insulting them by calling them old.

    Well I don't need a walking stick and am working 5 days a week. I guess my company hasn't realized I am over the hill and should have been shipped out to pasture............
