    A few years back I had a job I liked and a boss who was a world class jerk. He delighted in giving me silly and unreasonable things to do to try and make me mad. One day I walked into my office that I shared with a coworker and friend. He was looking at me and there was this picture sitting on my desk. (Below)
    I looked at the picture and asked “what’s this?”  He calmly replied with see this marestail? (Pointing at the one on the left) This one is dead. See this other marestail? (pointing at the one on the right). This one is like you. “They beat the $hit out of you every day and you just keep coming back for more”. I felt like he had paid me a huge compliment.  It meant a lot and was also good advice to never quit. Please pardon the language but I will never forget what he said.

MTO: My ole man would tell me that after he whipped my butt with the 3"  wide leather belt he just removed from his pants. I'd stop crying because I'd wonder. You just whipped your son's butt black and blue through his blue jeans.  Why would you want to do worse?. What the ****'s wrong with you. Of course never said the last part out loud. Some times the best part of childhood is growing up and defending ones self. Hows that for farm wisdom?  Yea I know, it sucks.

Lorenzo, I don't know where you find them, but keep'em coming. As the quote above... never a truer word was spoken.

Find your self down or in a hole and you will find out very quickly who your real friends are. (been there more than once)

I`ve told the story before about rescuing a horse from a hand dug well.

Problem there was he was submerged all but his head in water.
