Notes from a Country Kitchen

Wasn’t that a wonderful rain? I hope things will look better as the lawns were getting pretty brown. I guess we shouldn’t worry about the lawns, but think of the farmers and their struggle in this hot weather. I remember when I was a kid and the pastures got dried up, dad would then cut a bunch of corn and haul it down by the barn for the milk cows to eat and they thought they were in heaven, eating those green stalks of corn. dad would cut the stalks off as he said it was too dangerous for us kids using the big corn knife. Then we hauled the corn home in the old pick-up and scattered it in the cow yard for them to eat. Those were the Good Ole’ Days.

An old farmer rounded a curve on a country road and crashed into an oncoming car driven by a city-slicker salesman. As the men sat at the edge of the road waiting for the police, the old farmer turned to the salesman and said, “You look a little shook. I have a bottle of whiskey in my truck. Want a drink?” The salesman said that might help his nerves. He took a long pull on the bottle, handed it back and said, “Well, old-timer, are you going to have a drink, too?” “Yep,” the farmer said as he put the cap back on the bottle, “but I think I’ll have mine after the sheriff leaves.

Some friends are like your shadow - you see them only when the sun shines.

I go to what’s called a family physician - He treats mine and I support his.

A Christian should always put a saucer under his cup, because his cup runneth over.

Life itself can’t give you joy, unless you really will it. Life just gives you time and space - it’s up to you to fill it.

Rules for Today
Don’t lose your head -
you may need it.
Keep cool - even in
hot weather.
Don’t spread rumor -
it doesn’t need your help.
Watch your talk - horse sense is seldom hitched to a wagging tongue.
