Lessons from Dad

Since Father's Day is coming up on Sunday..I thought I'd share some of the more poignant lessons I learned from my dad over the years. Okay, maybe they're not poignant, but these are things he was known to say over, and over, and over again. And then once again for good measure in case you didn't hear it the first 73 times. 1. "If it's in the paper, it must be true." Now when I say that, I'm being sarcastic. But when my dad said it, I think he really believed it. 2. "Plenty of water in the tap." This is the automatic response you'd get if you requested an icy cold beverage like a Coke or Kool-Aid. (Last year when I wrote about this topic I forgot that one..so thank you, Donna!) 3. "This house is lit up like a Polish cathedral!" I'm sure this was said with nothing but love for all our Stevens Point neighbors, as he showed concern for our carbon footprint when too many lights were left on in the house. 4. "What are you, a cop?"This was the usual response when I asked him where he was going. I'm sure he loved it when I used that phrase on him back in my teenager days. 5. "For free take, for pay ask questions." Unfortunately I think I took this a bit too literally. If you don't believe me, come take a look at my house. (No, I'm not quite ready for hoarders.)

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!
