Young Johnny asked his father, Dad, what is the difference between "confident" and "confidential?" 

His father replied:- John, you are my son, of that I am CONFIDENT, young Tommy next door is also my son that is CONFIDENTIAL.

I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

ADVICE FROM A FARMER'S WIFE
- Whenever you return a borrowed pie pan, make sure it's got a warm pie in it.
- Invite lots of folks to supper. You can always add water to the soup.
- There's no such thing as a woman's work on a farm. There's just work.
- Make home a happy place for the children. Everybody returns to their happy place.
- Always keep a small light on in the kitchen window at night.
- If your man gets his truck stuck in the field, don't go in after him. Throw him a rope and pull him out with the tractor.
- It's a whole lot easier to get breakfast from a chicken than a pig.
- It's easy to clean an empty house, but hard to live in one.
- All children spill milk. Learn to smile and wipe it up.
Homemade's always better'n store bought.
- A tongue's like a knife. The sharper it is the deeper it cuts.
- A good neighbor always knows when to visit and when to leave.
- A city dog wants to run out the door, but a country dog stays on the porch 'cause he's not fenced-in.
- Always light birthday candles from the middle outward.
- Nothin' gets the frustrations out better'n splittn' wood.
- The longer dress hem, the more trusting the husband.
- Enjoy doing your children's laundry. Some day they'll be gone.
- You'll never catch a runnin' chicken but if you throw seed around the back door you'll have a skillet full by supper.
- Check your shoelaces before runnin' to help somebody.
- Visit old people who can't get out. Some day you'll be one.
- The softer you talk, the closer folks'll listen.
- The colder the outhouse, the warmer the bed.

I remember reading once, “if you think it’s expensive to hire a professional, wait until you hire an amateur “.

I have been helping my mate rebuild his huge shed/factory, and Oakey AKA the barking doorbell is watching and getting in the way.
I can almost hear him thinking "you humans make everything so difficult, a shed only has to be a dog-and-a-half long, a dog-and-a-half wide and a dog-and-a-bit high."

I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

If there was no winter, spring would not be so pleasant.
If we did not sometimes experience adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.

Said to be by the poet Anne Bradstreet.
