Country Philosopher

May 27, 2014

My father was a very smart man, and somewhat of a country philosopher.  He was a Dairy Farmer, Building Contractor and Rancher and had a lot of sayings he would use to teach me some of life’s lessons.  Sort of like Will Rodgers but with perhaps a bit more colorful language at times.  It was his way of getting you to think, rather than just follow instructions.  He was perfectly content watching me go about a task and royally screw it up, and then smile and say, “Well, did you learn anything?”  When asked to do a job I hadn’t done before, I would say to him, “Dad, I’ve never done that before.” He’d usually respond by saying “Go ahead, you can’t learn any younger.”

 

So when Jackley and I decided to build a ranch from scratch, and market beef, it just didn’t occur to me that we couldn’t do it.  That was 16-years ago and I suppose if Dad was to show up now and ask if I had learned anything, I’d have to say "yeah, ‘cause you can’t learn any younger."
