I can’t recall the first joke my Grandpa... Sign in to see full entry.

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

One It was a beautiful day in early June 1994. The entire OJ Simpson fiasco was still about a week away. My wife and I had decided to take a quick walk through a local wood and wander down by the lake that was just behind our home, thereby delaying our intended 3:00 p.m. arrival at my Father’s home....
