The Unauthorized Biography of Rosco P. Coltrane

When it's my moment in the sun, I won't forget that I am blessed, but every hero walks alone, thinking of more things to confess

Lafe's Lessons

Packing extra pairs of underwear has never been a bad idea.

You are going to the wrong doctor if he is always packing a gun. There was a Springdale doctor recently arrested for allegedly carrying a gun to work and threatening some of his co-workers at the clinic. He allegedly carried the gun to protect himself from his patients.

Never get the reputation of making weak drinks, being a bad tipper, or being unreliable.

The left lane is for fast cars, right lane for slow cars. Seriously people, don’t camp out in the passing lane. I can’t tell you how many times I am driving somewhere and get behind someone that is clogging the highway or street up.

Always double check. Just in case

If you didn’t teach someone something, or learn anything today, then you didn’t really experience life. All you did was just waste a bunch of air.

Make sure the people you love know it. How come the easiest feelings to experience are sometimes the hard things to express?

Love people for who they are and forgive people for who they aren’t.

Always stop to give thanks for how you’ve been blessed. God still listens.

Learn how to give and learn how to receive. Most people forget that last part.

Know when to stay quiet. That is one of the most important thing that I have learned in my life. It comes in quite handy.

Don’t take yourself too seriously.

Manners are still important. I wish more people realized this.

If you can read, you can cook.

As you get older and still like to play basketball or ultimate Frisbee or football or whatever, don’t play to win the game, play to not blow out an ACL.

Get in more discussions and less arguments.

Always pop the extra few bucks for better seats at a concert or sporting event.

(Now your part. Post comments on this blog about the rules and lessons you believe in.)

Fold toilette paper...don't wad it up: Its more comfy on your bottom, easier to flush, and conserves.

Just when you are about to complain about something...hit yourself upside the head to stop yourself: It will save the listening person from having to do because they had listened to you.

Tear regular paper towels in half to conserve paper.

Never believe an engineer when they say they want to have open communication.

Run cold water down the drain as you drain hot water from pasta. Hot water can scold your piping (if you have the pvc pipes)

Don't skip out on something social unless you seriously can't...or need to take a personal break.

Travel. It's good for the soul.

Don't piss off the asian. ;)

1. Never run out of food when you are hosting a get together. I have an Asian friend who says it is a disgrace in their culture.

2. Never drive a motorcycle when drunk and not wearing a helmet. I have seen three guys in the ICU who didn't take that joke so well.

3. Never drive a scooter drunk and without a helmet. See #2.

4. If you do decide to procede with #2 and #3 above, don't make a fool of yourself and do it two more times. Learn from the firt time and it will save your face in the ICU, literally and physically. (Sad, but true story)

5. When giving someone criticism, give them praise first. End the criticism with praise. This is called a "praise sandwich". I need to be reminded of this.

6. Take time to watch a sunrise at least once a week.

7. Watch the sunset as much as you can.

8. Pray for rain.

9. Get 8 hours of sleep a night. If you only get 7 hours of sleep a night (the American average gets 6.9)you will have lost an entire nights sleep in one week. That is 4 nights in one month and 52 nights in one year. If you do this on average for 7 years straight, you will have lost one years worth of sleep!

10. Tell your doctor "thank you" every once in a while, as long as he doesn't carry a gun in his pocket of course! Maybe that doctor wouldn't have carried one if more of his patients told him thanks?
