Talkin' Ain't Doin'.

"Can't" don't live here.

Takes but one cat to make kitten mittens.

His mind's 'bout as sharp as a bowling ball, and maybe twice as dense.

Every mile of road has two miles of ditch.

A good fence should be horse high, bull strong and hog tight.

A collection of "Don'ts":

• Don't bite off more than you can chew.

• Don't corner something meaner than you.

• Don't educate yourself to be rich; educate yourself to be happy.

• Don't go crying after anything that never went crying after you.

• Don't go measuring my corn in your half-bushel.

• Don't interfere with something that ain't botherin' you none.

• Don't judge folks by their relatives.

• Don't let the oak door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya.

• Don't let your mind wander, it's too small to be let out on its own.

• Don't name a cow you plan to eat.

• Don't pick a fight with an old man; if he's too old to fight, he'll just kill you.

• Don't run down narrow stairs when you're wearing spurs.

• Don't sell your horse to buy a saddle.

• Don't sell your mule to buy a plough.

• Don't squat with your spurs on.

• Don't take yourself seriously; no one else does.

• Don't worry about tomorrow -- tomorrow can take care of itself.

• Don't worry about finding the right man; fix yourself on becoming the right woman.

• Don't worry about finding the right woman; fix yourself on becoming the right man.



Those last two should be the banner over every thread in the "Love & Dating" forum.

They are us. We are them, and they are us.

• Ignorance can be cured, but stupid lasts forever.

• It is a fine line between stupid and dead.

• No matter how hard you try, you just can't fix stupid.

• Stupid is as stupid does.
