Father’s Day

Americans have set aside today as the specific day of the year we honor the fathers among us. Though my own father passed away a couple of years ago, I thought I’d take a moment to share some of the things he taught me.

  • No matter how hard you want it to, money does not grow on trees.
  • Respect is never given away, only earned. And the easiest way to earn it, is to give it.
  • Changing the oil & filter in your car can be a rewarding and bonding experience between a father and his child. And when it’s not, at least all the yelling and swearing should entertain the neighbors.
  • Plumbing is a noble art, best left to the professionals. As what you can destroy in minutes fix over several hours, they can fix in one (though they’ll probably charge you for more).
  • He really wasn’t kidding about that money/tree thing.

Oh and to my faithful readers out there, feel free to add something your dad taught you in the comments.
