Happy Father's Day
Today it is steaks on the grill and Nascar on tv with Dad. Here are a couple of my favorite quotes about fathers.
When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.~(Mark Twain, "Old Times on the Mississippi" Atlantic Monthly, 18)
Now I am in my forty's and there is no one any wiser than Dad. My father is a soft spoken man. He let me make my own choices in life.
"He didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it." ~(Clarence Budington Kelland)
I will spend the rest of my life trying to become half the man my Father is...I doubt I make it.
