Texas Compassion

A very gentle Texas lady was driving across a high bridge outside San Antonio one day. As she neared the top of the bridge, she noticed a young man fixin’ to jump. She stopped her car, rolled down the window and said, “Please don’t jump! Think of your dear mother and father!”

“Mom and Dad are both dead,” he said sadly, then turned back toward his doom. “I’m going to jump!”

“Wait!” she said. “Think of your wife and children!”

“My wife left me,” he replied, “and I don’t have any kids.”

“Well, then,” she said, grasping at straws, “think of the Alamo!”

He replied, “What’s the Alamo?”

“Well bless your heart,” she said. “Just go ahead and jump, you dumb ass Yankee!”

Baptist Cowboy

Photography Prints

A cowboy walks into a bar in Texas, orders three mugs of Bud
and sits in the back room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn.
When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders
three more.

The bartender approaches and tells the cowboy, “You know,
a mug goes flat after I draw it, it would taste better if you bought
one at a time.”

The cowboy replies, “Well, you see, I have two brothers. One
is in Australia, the other is in Dublin, and I’m in Texas. When we
all left home, we promised that we’d drink this way to remember
the days we drank together. So I drink one for each of my
brothers and one for myself.”

The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it
there. The cowboy becomes a regular in the bar, and always
drinks the same way He orders three mugs and drinks them in
turn.

One day, he comes in and orders two mugs. All the regulars
take notice and fall silent. When he comes back to the bar for
the second round, the bartender says, “I don’t want to intrude
on your grief, but I wanted to offer my condolences on your loss.”

The cowboy looks quite puzzled for a moment, then a light dawns
and he laughs. “Oh, no, everybody’s just fine,” he explains, “It’s
just that my wife and I joined the Baptist Church in Sweetwater
and I had to quit drinking. Hasn’t affected my brothers though.”

The wisdom of our ancestors

The wisdom of our ancestors

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, When looking back in history, I soon discovered this has always been a problem, Benjamin Franklin once said, ”Of all the senses, common sense seems to be the one that is used the least.” As obvious as it may seem, many seem to be totally oblivious to it. Most, if not all of the problems the world faces today could be solved if people would just sit back and think about what would seem to be the most obvious and simple solution to any issue. Often times people tend to overcomplicate the issues. I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice. It is now evident they were a lot smarter than we gave them credit for. Many times, in today’s world, the schools and universities can no longer be counted on to teach truth and values that will guide someone through life.

Will Rogers Quotes

Will Rogers, who died in a 1935 plane crash, was one of the
greatest political sages this country has ever known.


Some of his sayings: 


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.


ABOUT GROWING OLDER… 

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’s 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’re old.

Bill Clinton in Horse Country

A man walked into a cowboy bar
and ordered a beer just as President Clinton appeared on the
television. After a few sips, he looked up at the television and
mumbled, “Now, there’s the biggest horse’s ass I’ve ever
seen.” A customer at the end of the bar quickly stood up,
walked over to him, and decked him.

A few minutes later, as the man was finishing his beer, Hillary
Clinton appeared on the television. “She’s a horse’s ass
too,” the man. This time, a customer at the other end of the
bar quickly stood up, walked over to him, and knocked him off his
stool. “Damn it!” the man said, climbing back up to the
bar. “This must be Clinton country!”

“Nope,” the bartender replied. “Horse country!”

    West Texas Lawman

    West Texas Lawman

    A young Texan grew up wanting to be a lawman. He grew up big –6’2″ — and strong as a longhorn and fast as a mustang. He could shoot a bottle cap tossed in the air at 40 paces. When he finally became of age he applied to the only place he had dreamed of working : the West Texas Sheriff’s Department.

    After a big mess of tests and interviews, the Chief Deputy finally called him into his office for the young man’s final interview.

    “You’re a big strong kid and you can really shoot,” the Chief Deputy says. “So far your qualifications all look good . But we have what you call an ‘attitude suitability test’ that you must take before you can be accepted.”

    “Yes, sir,” the boy replied.

    “We just don’t let anyone carry our badge, son.”

    “No, sir!” he answer.

    Then, sliding a service pistol and a box of ammo across the desk, the Chief says:

    “Take this pistol and go out and shoot:
    six illegal aliens,
    six lawyers,
    six meth dealers,
    six Muslim extremists,
    and a rabbit.”

    “A rabbit?” the kid replies. “Why the rabbit?”

    “Great attitude, son,” says the Chief Deputy, putting the pistol back in his drawer. “When can you start?”

    The Cowboy Code

    The Cowboy Code of Ethics

    1. A cowboy removes his hat when entering the presence of a lady,although he may leave it on if she works in a saloon.

    2. A cowboy says EXCUSE ME, MA’AM, when leaving a lady’s presence.

    3. A cowboy says PARDON ME, MA’AM, when bumping into a lady, or treading on her feet.

    4. A cowboy never sits, while a lady is standing, unless he feels particularly tired, or his feet hurt.

    5. A cowboy allows a lady to go through a doorway, first, especially if he thinks one of his enemies may try to shoot him in a cowardly ambush.She would provide good cover.

    6 . A cowboy does not spit on the floor, but if he does, he will point it out to the ladies so they will not drag their skirts through it.

    7. A cowboy never tracks horse poop into a lady’s house. He should leave his boots outside the door, unless his feet stink
    as bad as the horse poop, in which case, he should just go someplace else. Maybe the saloon, where the stench of horse poop is no worse than the stench of cow poop.

    8. A cowboy does not pick his nose at the table, unless it will help him breath better or eliminate a whistle that otherwise might become annoying to the ladies.

    9. A cowboy does not scratch his groin, his armpits, or suck on the ends of his mustache, when a lady is near.

    10. A cowboy does not swear or make reference to bodily functions, inthe presence of a lady.

    11. A cowboy must not sneeze at the table. If a strong need arises that cannot be resisted, he will turn his head away from the lady, so she won’t be sprayed and perhaps be struck by a stray booger.

    12. A cowboy does not noisily slurp his coffee in the presence of a lady. Instead, he should hold the saucer steady with both
    hands, tip it toward his mouth, and slurp silently.

    13. A cowboy does not fart in the presence of a lady… not even silently. If he does, it might stink, and she may smell it and possiblythink that he is not actually a gentleman.

    14. A cowboy will grasp a lady’s elbow to help her onto a horse or into a carriage. He should never, ever push on her derriere
    to give her a boost, because she might kick his teeth out, unless she works in the saloon.
