Happy Fathers Day!!!
« on: June 17, 2018, 10:32:18 AM »
Happy Fathers Day to all the special dads out there! I always try to remember a funny story about my dad on every Fathers Day. When I was very young, my dad took me to the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, RI. We were looking at the lion in its cage when I commented to my dad how ferocious he looked. I then said to my dad " What if the lion got out of its cage & killed you?". My dad smiled & was just about to console me when I said " What bus would I take home?".
Having a gun in your hand is much more effective than having the entire police department on the phone!

Great story, thanks for sharing.

My dad was my backup.  I lost him in 2001 at age 89, yet he is my backup still...I try to live my life every day with the values that he taught me.
