Dear Ann Landers, I thought you might enjoy these tidbits of cowboy wisdom that I picked up from the Internet. -- Dave from Cumberland, Md.
Dear Dave, Those "tidbits" are solid hunks of wisdom for the population at large, not only cowboys. I'm pleased to pass them on. Here they are:
1. Don't squat with your spurs on.
2. Don't interfere with something that ain't bothering you none.
3. Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.
4. The easiest way to eat crow is while it's still warm. The colder it gets the harder it is to swallow.
5. The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with watches you shave his face in the mirror every morning.
6. A woman marries a man thinking she can change him, but she can't. A man marries a woman thinking she will never change, but she does.
7. Never ask a barber whether you need a haircut.
8. Never miss a good chance to shut up.
Hi! It's Margo here. I'd love to know what you think of the letters -- and the answers!
Also, any additional thoughts you might have. Thanks!

Our Reader to Reader Question of the Week:
Dear Readers, , My x-girlfriend who lived with my son and I for 16 years died of cancer. Prior before we knew she had cancer-she moved out because of an addiction problem. We did stay very close before she died. Her x-husband an attorney took over her finances and the burial arrangements. I being financially set was okay with that, whatever they needed I provided. What really hurt my son and I the most was the obituary - we were not mentioned at all. Our friends (mine and hers) were appalled. I was embarrassed and upset for not just me, but for my son-who loved her also. I never been so upset. Her x-husband put his wife and kids and their grandchildren in the obituary, who my girlfriend barely knew. They live an hour away from us. I know its silly to be mad over a little section of the newspaper, but it still hurts. Will time let this devastating loss of her and this article ever go away? I am so angry at this whole situation, its not like we can go and rewrite an obituary notice.
