Things My Dad taught Me.. !!!!

  • The Measurement of my finger from the tip to the first joint is 1 inch... depth for planting peas. 
  • The measurement to the second joint is 2 inches... depth for corn.
  • Return borrowed things in better shape than when you borrowed them.
  • There are two types of trouble -- One is the trouble you knowingly walk into, the other is the trouble that just happens. It's important to know the difference. 
  • Walk Softly, but carry a big stick.
  • If you have to use the said stick, make sure who you use it on, doesn't get up.
  • Grits are good.
  • Foul language is a sign of limited vocabulary.
  • Everyone is a friend until proven otherwise.
  • Don't Watch the clock when you are at work. 
  • Respect the elders. 
  • Never go to bed angry. 
  • That which does not kill you will hurt like the dickens, but it will make you stronger. 
  • Family is the most important thing on earth. 
  • The true meaning of "Self Made Man".
  • If you don't know something, go to the library and learn it.
  • The phrases "I Don't know", "I Forgot", or "I tried (and failed)" are excuses. 
  • There is a difference between an excuse and a reason, know the difference. 
  • Take care of your appearance -- even if its just a tee and jeans.
  • The world can change everything about you, except your point of view... unless you allow it to.
