Description: 

I like to give advice ’cause folks need it. I don’t pretend to be smart. Doctors are supposed to be the smart people, with all those degrees, Ph.D. and B.M. and a S-this-that-and-the-other. I tell them, I got a Ph.D., too: post-hole digger.’” I write advice on signs and placards and a lot of other things around here. I tell people to always tell the truth. You tell the truth, you only got to tell it once. A lie is like an inner tube. You got to keep patching it.

You tell the truth, you only got to tell it once. A lie is like an inner tube. You got to keep patching it. You can see what I write, like “Sin is wrong.” “Jesus is real.” “Love all the artists.” I got it wrote all around: “Jesus is coming to Kosciusko.” People say, “How you know?” I say. “Jesus is coming everywhere.” I get some good ideas from church, and some from other folks’ placards. “When God closes a door, he opens a window.” “Take a smile from someone else and pass it on.” “Frogs have it easy. They eat what bugs them.” “If you’re going to walk on thin ice, yon might as well dance.” I like this: “Courage is the art of knowing that you’re the only one who knows you’re scared to death.” My best advice is on my mailbox: “Mind your own business. Thank you.”
