Midfield High School

When I was your age I walked 15 miles to school, all uphill, in the snow and over broken glass...so remembers The Swami

As a tribute to Father's Day; what was or is one of your favorite DAD-ISMS.... or things your Father told you over and over?

Although my Dad never really whipped us except once, one of his favorite lines was "I will knock you into the middle of next week and you will be looking both ways for Sunday."  My Dad had alot of funny quotes but as  far as not whipping us kids I really sometimes would have rather had a beating instead of his punishment of choice which was a lecture.  I really would just say can you just whip me and let's get this over with.

My dad constantly repeated Nikita Kruschev’s infamous quote directed at the US during the cold war, “We will bury you without firing a shot”.  This was proof enough to my Dad that hippies, long hair, rock and roll, free love and dope were all communist plots designed to destroy America.  Although Kruschev’s Soviet empire fell, he must be smiling up from his grave to see what’s happening to modern day America.  All while my Dad keeps rolling in his as America unknowingly and blindly becomes a socialist nation.

Watch what you volunteer for, especially in the military...

You got yourself in this mess, get yourself out....

 

#2 didn't make as much sense until now days and you see so many always blaming everybody but themselves for the mess they are in.....  My Dad definitely helped me through many messes I made throughout my life and I feel I was able to help him through a couple he made.  The great thing about these messes, valuable lessons of life were learned.  The college of hard-knocks is sometimes if not most times the best education money can buy...

That I'd never get married if I didn't learn to cook (he almost proved me right) and that a spoonful of honey, Milk of Magnesia or a dab of camphophenique (sp?) would cure anything.  Oh and that the hours slept before midnight were better for you than the ones after.
