Thank you very much! My father, of course, seemed to get much wiser after I got through my teenage years!

I remember one particular time I smart mouthed him back andhe said to me, "So you want to be some kind of wise a$$, eh?" I responded, "Well it's better than being a dumb a$$!" He laughed at that one and said I got a one time pass from getting my a$$ beat!

One big thing I owe to my father is the love of camping and the outdoors! Of course what we do now isn't REAL camping, it's STREAMIN'!

That's true! I am so glad that my father got me involved with Scouting as a Cub Scout and encouraged me all the way to Eagle Scout. Though I did get into some trouble along the way growing up, I'd be in a lot worse off shape if not for Scouting!

"When meeting a girl's parents, take a good look at her mother... most likely that's what she'll look like in 30 years." Another of my father's bit of wisdom!

Age is not always accompanied by wisdom.
Sometimes it arrives alone.
