Happy Father's Day
I added a couple of items to my post of June, 2004:
I remember when my Dad
Drove me to Little League three times a week and helped me work on my pitching motion every day after school.
Worked three jobs so that we could buy a house, which explained why he was always tired.
Installed all the wiring when the church put in its pipe organ.
Bought me a violin for $350, which was a lot of money in 1965.
Let me visit him in his office, where he was the manager. The atmosphere was hushed, quieter than a classroom (this was a long time ago).
Quit smoking, for his sake and ours, when the Surgeon General issued the first warning on cigarettes.
Gave me the family car when I learned how to drive.
Gave me a lecture on how to treat women----politely, and always with a great deal of respect.
Hope you had a great Father’s Day, Dad.
---Your grateful son
