P O P: Happy Father’s Day!

“The greatest lessons I learned from my father didn’t come from lectures or discipline or even time spent together. What has stuck with me is his example. From watching, I chose whether to be or not to be like him.” – Rochelle Goodrich

“I got an A on the third quiz in American history,
an A,
dammit.
Last time I got a B
up from a C
and my father said,
“if you can get a C
you can get a B,
if you can get a B
you can get an A.”-
I got an A
and my father said,
“grades don’t mean anything.” – Thalia Chaltas

  • My father died about 8 years ago, and in the garage I still have hung up his old spirit level. Every time I pass it, I think of him!

    Hi Chrissie and so sorry to hear about your dad. Mine passed away back in August of 2008. Pop was a mechanical engineer and our garage was filled with tools. Wood-working ones, antique tools and all organized in toolboxes, on the wall. etc. I was really missing my D.O.D. (dear ole dad) today and created the Etsy treasury to honor him. Big virtual hug and chop kisses and some Wyatt Earp Scoobie-snacks for Dixie and Tilly!
