Miscellaneous Pearls of Wisdom

Following a hard drive crash, I've been reconstructing my online life.  I had been operating under the blissful assumption that the backups I had so lovingly and painstakingly run on my external hard drive would save my bacon.  If only.  So I've been sifting through other reservoirs of data to get back what I can. The hard way.  The iPhone totally rocks for that.  Turns out some of the silly stuff I'd put in Facebook also came in handy.  Hopefully Keith, my pretty expensive, but could be a lot worse, computer wizard will be able to work miracles and get something useful off my kaput hard drive for just enough dinero to keep him and Mr. PTown happy. 

Anyway...  I found this little diddy on my Facebook Profile and thought it might make for an entertaining post this drizzly (yeah!) Hot Stove Season Saturday...
Pearls of Wisdom from Will Rogers:

1. Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco.

2. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.

3. There are 2 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 in your pocket (and to make sure backups to your external hard drive are running successfully).

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.
 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.

Will, as it turns out, was a baseball fan and is the origin of the phrase "get lost kid". The clever Orioles fans gave it a new spin to dis American League All Star Team Manager Cito Gaston's snub of O's pitchers in the 1993 All Star Game played in Baltimore. Dontcha just love Wikipedia?

Give PTownFan a shout. It will make her day to know there is someone out there ;-) Don't worry. She doesn't always talk about herself in the third person like The Rickey.
