Fatherly Teachings...

With Father's Day right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to share stories/experiences surrounding special things our dads taught us when we were younger. Maybe, some dads still teach a few new things today, after all those years.

I always enjoyed watching my dad in his work shop making furnace blower bonnets and square duck work. Sometimes he would make cabinets or knick knack shelves.
I did learn to measure, measure, measure.

When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.

My dad could fix and build anything, and to us kids that was amazing. We'd always fetch tools and things for him, and huddle all around him (asking question after question) as he worked.

My dad also taught me to be calm, not get worked up over little things, and not to be afraid of trying.

LOL! Yep, I remember the #1 rule pertaining to "measure, measure, measure".
