Chasin' down a Hoodoo...


« on: June 14, 2009, 05:05:38 PM »

So, in honor of Fathers Day (which is next Sunday here in the US of A), I thought we could post funny/inspiring quotes/stories about good 'ol Dad!

 When I lost the Pinewood Derby race in Cub Scouts, dad pulled me aside and gave me a lesson on sportsmanship and winning/losing.  I smiled a little to signal to him that I got the lesson but he could tell I was still sore and said, "Anyway, everybody knows that boys' daddy is crazier than a run-over dog."  Meaning he was of ill-repute and probably cheated.  And you know what?  It was discovered that they did!

 Years later, he explained to me that before I got married the most important woman in my life was my mamma and after I got married, the most important woman would be my wife.  "Treasure her boy, and let her know it!"  Wise words, dad!  This one's for you!
