Kewl Things My Dad Taught Me.......
My father was a kewl guy, although I'm not sure he'd have liked the word kewl.

This is a list of "wisdoms" he imparted on me as I was growing up.
For a WWII vet with an 8th grade education, he knew a lot of Stuff.
If you want to be successful, find something you really love to do...
then find someone who will pay you to do it.
On the word Can't:
Can't never did nuthin' - why? Because can't was lazy...
(You can do anything if you decide to work at it)
On Mushroom hunting: (and life?)
You won't find any if you always follow me, go off on your own and look...
(And thus, I took the road less traveled....)
Oh, and by the way, he'd never get too far away....
On Blind Trust:
Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear.
On Fear (and trying again):
If you fall off of the horse, get right back on
(don't let fear rule your life)
Learn all you can, no one can ever take that away from you.
Quitters never win, Winners never quit...
And one only insiders will understand:
Ain't a horse that can't be rode, ain't a rider that can't be throwed
So......always keep your bucket down....
(Don't get overconfident and thus careless)
