    Default Father's Day

    So it's Father's Day Weekend, Happy Father's Day guys! It's our one day out of the year so make the most of it. My daughter's birthday and Father's Day are on the same weekend. I fired up the Smoker with Ribs and Chicken, we exchanged cards and shared some time together. There's a place in town that serves Bloody Mary's the size of your head, we may try that on Sunday for brunch.

    I came across this list of things you'll hear Dad say. Some of the things MY Dad said would never get past the moderators so I'll do some self editing here.
    And yes, I've used several of these myself. Feel free to add some of your own...


    1. Do you think I'm made of money? Money doesn't grow on trees ya know.

    2. When I was your age ...

    3. I'm not sleeping, I'm just resting my eyes.

    4. I'm not going to tell you again!

    5. Were you raised in a barn?

    6. Don't talk back to your mother.

    7. If you were told to jump off a cliff, would you?

    8. They don't make them like they used to.

    9. Stop crying or I'll give you something to cry about.

    10. You're not going out in that!!!!

    11. We were grateful to have an orange for Christmas.

    12. Now, don't go spending a lot on me.

    13. A little hard work never hurt anybody.

    14.You'll understand when you're older.

    15. When I was your age I walked to school, both ways, uphill, with wolves chasing me, and WE LIKED IT!

    Do as I say, not do as I do

    Stupidity has its own rewards

    youíre the oldest now, youíre supposed to set an example

    If Iíve told you once Iíve told you 1000 times,
    put my tools back where they belong

    No youíre not getting a bigger allowance,
    just because your friend got one
    doesnít mean you do

    Somethings that I remember my father saying to me
    in my younger years, rather ironic I was born on Fatherís Day
    and now my birthday is on Fatherís Day

    I don't have a long list but the one that sticks out is my dad saying
    "The world doesn't owe you a living"

    Oh yea, and
    "Close the da** door, I'm not paying to heat the outside!"

    My 86 year old father says "It's only a good deal if you NEED it"

    So much for snowmobiling..but wait, he brought home two sleds and a trailer back in 1977, so much for that advice.

    Some from my dad that I am sure got passed down to him:

    "looks like it suffered from to much grease..."
    "take your time getting there but hurry back"
    "can shear a sheep many times but only skin em once"
    "fast moving nickels is better than slow moving dimes"

    I could go on and on
