A Cowboy's Advice

Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

Marry a person you love to talk with. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

When you say, "I love you," mean it.

When you say, "I'm sorry," look the person in the eye.

Believe in love at first sight, but...

Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt some but it's the only way to live life completely.

Never laugh at anyone's dream. People who don't have dreams don't have much.

In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

Don't judge others by their relatives. They didn't pick them.

Talk slowly but think quickly.

When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, "Why do you want to know?"

Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

Say "bless you" when you hear someone sneeze.

Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.

Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

When you lose, don't lose the lesson.

When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

Smile when you pick up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

Spend some time alone, just you and your Higher Power.

Love and Peace, Barefoot
