You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.
Daddy always said
"Never ask someone where they're from, If they're from Texas they'll let you know, If they're not you might embarrass 'em
There are three kinds of men: Those that learn by reading.
Those that learn by observation.
And the rest of us, that have to pee on the electric fence for ourselves."
"If you’re ridin ahead of the herd, take a look back ever now and thenand to make sure it’s still there."
"Whoever said the pen is mightier than the sword obviously never encountered automatic weapons"
