Most people wouldn’t think of taking a long car trip without having their mechanic perform important auto maintenance like changing the air filter, checking fluid levels and inspecting the drive belt. It’s the smart thing to do.
But every year, area homeowners—like John—go into the cold-weather months without giving their heating systems a second thought.
Your furnace may be out of sight, but it shouldn’t be out of mind. A little preventive maintenance performed now will keep it working at its peak efficiency throughout the cold weather months.
Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.
Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.
A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.
Words that soak into your ears are whispered… not yelled.
Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads.
Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.
It don’t take a very big person to carry a grudge.
Every path has a few puddles.
When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.
Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin’.
Always drink upstream from the herd.
Lettin’ the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin’ it back in.
If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around..
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
Some days all you can do is smile and wait for some kind soul to come get you out of the bind you’ve gotten yourself into.
