Buck’s Words of Wisdom

January 29, 2009 — Leave a comment

An hour ago I finished the funeral for a good Christian man named Buck Shoemaker.

In the program his family prepared, they included a section called, “Buck’s Words of Wisdom.”

Buck was a cowboy–a real cowboy . . .and you’ll see from some of his sayings that he was a real wise cowboy.

There are some real gems here.

When buying gloves, you should be able to put your hand in your pocket and pull out a dime.

When building a fence, the posts should be straight in line and the wires tight.

When you get bucked off, dust off your britches and get back on.

If you haven’t been bucked off, you haven’t ridden much.

You break a horse, but you don’t break their spirit.

A horse can’t buck in sand.

The real cowboy is the one sittin’ in the middle of the pickup.

Don’t take any wooden nickels.
