“Don’t talk to your mother like she’s one of your Soldiers.”
Not to marry the “first” wife. (Obviously, I didn’t listen.)
“Marry your gal and join the Air Force.”
“Don’t dream about what you want to do - go out and do it!”
And, when he gave me a quarter (a lot of money for a little kid in those days): “Don’t spend it all in one place.”
“Nobody cares about you, or what you think.”
Why? He was right, that’s why.
Learn to read.
When I got divorced, my dad told me, “Women, if we couldn’t **** em, we’d throw rocks at them.”
Don’t vote Democrat. They’re evil.
my dad was a WW2 combat vet.
Didn’t talk serious much.
His therapist was Jack Daniels.
“Men stand when they drink”.
Only thing he was right about...
If you keep trying and never give up you do not always win but if you quit you lose every time.
“Alan you really need to check out this Free Republic website they does seem to be more people like us out there “
If you can’t afford to pay cash for something, you can’t afford it. Lone exception: house.
“Never get married.”
Walk fast and look mad and nobody will bother you.
2. No such thing as a free lunch.
If it seems to good to be true, it is.
You only get out of life what you put into it.
Go slow when you vacuum!!!
“Nobody owes you a living, so shut up and get back to work”
I was 13 Years Old and had to work at my Father’s Gas Station on Saturdays to earn my “allowance”. I worked 7 to 7, or 7 to 10 if my Older Brother couldn’t give me a ride home. No, Child Labor Laws were never discussed. LOL
I was whining to a guy that worked for my Father because all my Friends were going Camping and I couldn’t go with them because I had to work.
My Father walked up behind me while I was pontificating the depths of my despair and I didn’t realize he was there until the guy I was talking to started looking over my shoulder with a weird look on his face...
That one comment alone probably sealed my fate as being a Conservative rather than a Liberal.
Because I was doing something stupid.
