Things My Father Taught Me - Lessons In Life - Part Twenty Five

There were many other questions I wanted to ask, but dinner was ready, and it was almost milking time, so it had to wait. Over the course of the next few years, my Father began to teach me a bit more on a subject some might have avoided. To be honest, my Father was a quiet man in most aspects of his...

Things My Father Taught Me - Lessons In Life - Part Twenty Four

Outside, a pretty decent storm was blowing up, and the thunder was getting louder, and the lightning was beginning to light up the western sky. I had never liked the loud noise the summer storms brought, but Dad just loved them. We had moved to the center bay of the barn where we would load hay into... Sign in to see full entry.

Things My Father Taught Me - Lessons In Life - Part Twenty Three

From the time I was young, Dad always had taken us to the little church about a mile down the road from us. I can still remember that old church as if I was standing in it as I write this. While I don’t know the exact date it was built, I was often told it had been in use since before 1900, and I... Sign in to see full entry.

Things My Father Taught Me - Lessons In Life - Part Twenty Two

I know that if this were me reading this work, I would have several questions, so I will attempt to give you the answers to those questions. First and foremost, I would be asking, “Where was your Father when this was happening?” This was a question that hadn’t come to me until about a week after my... Sign in to see full entry.

Things My Father Taught Me - Lessons In Life - Part Twenty One

My earlier note about this part of the story still applies. As 'unkind' as I portray my mother, in the end, she made me what I am today. There is a closure of sorts that will follow toward the end of this section. ############## Coming back to how this affected my mother and eventually the rest of... Sign in to see full entry.

Things My Father Taught Me - Lessons In Life - Part Twenty

Just a quick note - this section, the one before it, and probably the next two, held up the publication of this book for two months. My editor and my then publisher felt it didn't belong, but I insisted. While I ultimately made peave with my mother, she shaped me as much as my Father shaped me. She... Sign in to see full entry.

Things My Father Taught Me - Lessons In Life - Part Nineteen

NOTE: If you read my story, "The Totally Unnecessary Death of Amanda Dawn," the next few sections are the basis for at least half of that story. ******************************************************* I debated a long time with myself whether to include the following section in this work. Several... Sign in to see full entry.

Things My Father Taught Me - Lessons In Life - Part Eighteen

As you probably have noticed, I am the eternal optimist. Dad often would recite an old joke every time anyone made light of my youthful enthusiasm that was slightly ‘blue’ for the times, but he was right. It went along the lines of the twin boys who were night and day different in temperament. One... Sign in to see full entry.

Things My Father Taught Me - Lessons In Life - Part Seventeen

Many young men get marriage advice from their fathers, and I was no different. One of the more important things he told me was that I shouldn’t run right out and get married until I had had a few years on my own. His reasoning at the time it was offered didn’t make sense to me then but now I... Sign in to see full entry.

Things My Father Taught Me - Lessons In Life - Part Sixteen

I am one of those people who is blessed (or cursed) with a constant flow of ideas that I just HAVE to try. I had collected American coins since about 1961 and as I got a little older; I began to go to a lot of coin shows and even later, began to set up as a dealer. I would frequently strike up a...
