“There are three kinds of people; the ones that learn by reading, the few who learn by observation… and the rest of them that have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.”

Okay he’s a Brit, but who could complain! (Aliens & Cowboys)

This is our last weekend before camera and as always crazy busy! Fittings, alterations, breakdown, paper work, load the trucks… and many other things to get done before we roll early on Monday!

Forgive me informational blog this weekend and take a look at the email that production sent out to us a few days ago! Cowboy or no these are still words to work, live and laugh by!

Cowboy Words of Wisdom to Live By

Never kick a fresh turd on a hot day.

Don’t worry about bitin’ off more than you can chew. Your mouth is probably a whole lot bigger’n you think.

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.

If you find yourself in a hole the first thing to do is stop diggin’.

Never smack a man who’s chewin’ tobacco.

Never follow good whiskey with water, unless you’re out of good whiskey.

Good judgement comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

Never drop your gun to hug a grizzly.

If you’re ridin’ ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it’s still there.

When you give a lesson in meanness to a critter or a person, don’t be suprised if they learn their lesson.

The best way to have a quiche for dinner is to make it up and put it in the oven to bake at 325 degrees. Meanwhile, get out a large T-bone, grill it, and when it’s done, eat it. As for the quiche, continue to let it bake, but otherwise ignore it.

When you’re throwin’ your weight around, be ready to have it thrown around by somebody else.

Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier ‘n puttin’ it back.

Always take a good look at what you’re about to eat. It’s not so important to know what it is, but it’s critical to know what it was.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it over and put it back in your pocket.

A smart ass don’t fit in a saddle.

Never miss a good chance to shut up.

Generally, you ain’t learnin’ nothing when your mouth’s a-jawin’.

If you’re ridin’ ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it’s still there with ya.

It’s better to keep your mouth shut and look stupid than open it and prove it.

Just ’cause trouble comes visiting doesn’t mean you have to offer it a place to sit down.

Nature gave us all something to fall back on, and sooner or later we all land flat on it.

There’ are two theories to arguin’ with a woman. Neither one works.

We all got pieces of crazy in us, some bigger pieces than others.

If you get thrown from a horse, you have to get up and get back on, unless you landed on a cactus; then you have to roll around and scream in pain.

If you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride.

When in doubt, let your horse do the thinkin’.

Speak your mind, but ride a fast horse.

If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around.
