This from my in-box this morning....

An Old Farmer's Advice:

* Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.

*Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.

*Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

* A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.

* Meanness don't jes' happen overnight.

* 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.

* The best sermons are lived, not preached.

* Don't judge folks by their relatives.

* Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a Rain Dance.

* Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.

* The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin'.

* Always drink upstream from the herd.

* Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.

* 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.

I love all of them, but I have a problem with this one - I think you can tell a lot about someone by their relatives. Particularly their mother :D

That said, I probably wouldn't judge them... but avoid them like the plague - yes, probably[;)] :D

After spending the last week at work doing maintenance on the plow, I can vouch this one to be correct!

*Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

Do something.

Either lead, follow, or get out of the way.

I don't know PG... **edited by me** my spouse of going on 22 years is SO very different from his family, that if I knew them before I knew him, I probably never would have given him a second look.

Andrea have to agree with that both our mothers were not very nice to us and even others told us not to marry as look at our mothers. So agree dont judge people by their rellys:)

Having time is a measure of enthusiasm:rolleyes:

I guess it's just really bad luck/judgement/taste for me then :D ... if I had met the potential MIL in question on the first date I would have run a significant distance in the opposite direction and saved myself a whole heap of time and energy.

Mind you, I guess you could argue I learnt a lot too! :D
