Advice needed
« on: January 03, 2008, 08:15:08 AM »
Dear Abby,
   It is 7° out right now.  I have a code and a runny dose.  The cows need fed. Need to haul some firewood. Got grain to load.  Customer wants to pick up his lumber. Should I just go out and lick the flagpole and get it over?    Signed, Wondering

Dear Wondering,

Would you like some cheese with that whine?

These are the times that you need to dig deep and just cowboy up.  Do you think no one ever got a cold when the west was being settled? 

Blow yer nose, and git to work. 

 :)

Save a farm today or starve tomorrow.

  Found a sick calf yesterday.  Thought about taking him in the house, but put him in the barn.
My name's Jim, I like wood.

Oh quit your whinning and get to work.  I'm waiting on some flooring ;D    And thanks for sharing that cold,  now I can't talk and the kids are loving it.  The funny thing is that because I couldn't talk this morning all the kids were  whispering too, finally as I was taking Avery to school she said "Mommy why do we have to whisper today.":D  Kids are so funny.

Buck it up!  Then go back to bed.

Tomorrow it will be back in the 40s and you can get it all done then. :D

Dear Wondering,
Dear Wondering,

You have no complaint.
You are what you are,
And you ain't what you ain't.

So, listen up buster,
And listen up good.

Quit wishing for bad luck,
And knocking on wood.

Signed

OK! OK!  I got out and got after it.  I'm hoping for pneumonia.  Doctors can cure that. ::)  I am assuming all those taking me to task were outside posting from their cell phones. ;)
