    Look at life through your dogs eyes now and then, it's pretty cool.
    And when you take him for that walk in the woods, "mark a tree" yourself, he'll get a kick out of it.
    Look at a wolf, look at a deer, look at a human, look at a black bear. The 30-30 was designed to be the most efficient caliber to down any of them within the range you would most commonly encounter such creatures.

    115. Hesitate before speaking and let someone else say what you're thinking. When out with the wife, I wait a second and she'll remark on a reckless driver. At work, I wait a second and one of my peers criticizes the boss for a dumb mistake. Makes life easier.

    #117: Never attribute to malice anything adequately explained by stupidity

    #118: Believe half of what you see and nowt (Nothing) of what you hear.

    #119: And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. But never stop looking for the truth, it's possible that your first opinion was ill informed.
    Speaking at Kanal D TV's Arena program, Turkey's Prime Minister Erdogan commented on the term "Moderate Islam", often used in the West to describe AKP and said, "These descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it."

    Never have a 2nd marriage, it's just a confirmation you have bad habits.

    I need you to talk to a few relatives of mine.
    Most are on husband or wife three and four. And they wonder what is wrong with me for being single.

    NEVER sent a thank you via phone call, email or text. Always make time for a hand written note. If you are not going to make time to "lick and stick" why bother.

    ---PROOF---

    A friend told me he was called by the widow of a man he'd worked with for over 25 years. She could not handle "cleaning out his desk/work area" and asked if he would box stuff up his stuff and bring it to her. He was happy to help. When he opened the right side top drawer, he found a thick stack of note cards. All of them hand written by himself. He'd sent this man many notes of thanks or encouragement over their 25+ year relationship. (my friend was this man's direct supervisor). The man had saved every one including the first one thanking him for going to work for the Company.

    If you don't think a hand written note has power...think again.
