    Old Chicken Farmer's Advice for the New Year 2010


    Old Chicken Farmer's Advice:

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

    Keep skunks, raccoons and bankers at a distance.

    Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

    A bumble bee is considerably faster than a Farmall tractor.

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

    Meanness don't jes' happen overnight..

    Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads..

    Do 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, honorable life.. Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time. (Live without regret)

    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.

    Lettin' 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.

    Leave the rest to God.
    --
    Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.

    And,

    Some days all you can do is smile and wait for some kind soul to come pull your hindy endy out of the bind you've gotten yourself into.



    RememberÂ…No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

    It's all attitude folks.

    I am SO ready.
    But even though this has been a horrible year, there have been some truly good times and I am grateful for them.
    Attitude is everything.
    Would it be okay to print out your chicken farmer list and tape it to the refrigerator?
