Southern Wisdom

Got a kick out of this postcard. Click on it and it will enlarge so you can read it better or read on:


1) Don't name a pig you plan to eat.
2) A bumble bee is faster than a John Deere tractor.
3) Don't skinny dip with snapping turtles
4) Two can live as cheap as one, if one don't eat.
5) Trouble with a milk cow is she won't stay milked.
6) To know how country folks are doing, look at their barns, not their houses.
7) Don't sell your mule to buy a plow.
8) Don't corner something meaner than you.
9) Keep skunks, bankers and lawyers at a distance.
10) Never lay an angry hand on a kid or an animal, it just ain't helpful.

Sage advice. The milk cow being milked struck home. The work never really gets finished does it. We repeat, repeat, repeat, kind of like washing clothes.Oh well.

ok wont get me a cow, I'd have to hook hte kids up directly! having a store at the end of the street with milk is hard enough!

What a giggle! I remember when I was about five that I made the connection between "Hassenfeffer" and the bunnies I loved to play with - I was horrified I ate my "furry friends"! Never did again!
