Cover Story December 16, 2004


Mark Twain,

the Master


by lyle e davis


Those of us who fancy ourselves writers need to pause now and then and pick up and read a story or two by the Master, Mark Twain.


It makes one rather humble right smartly.







Cowboy/Country Wisdom


Don't name a pig you plan to eat.

Country fences need to be horse high, pig tight, and bull strong.

Life is not about how fast you run, or how high you climb, but how well you bounce.

Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.

Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

A bumble bee is faster than a John Deere tractor.
