Advice from pops
My dad was one of those sort of scary, call me "Father Sir" 1950s dads. I do remember his telling me, "You cannot duck funerals--you must go." Now, I go.
In our paper, some dads gave advice Sunday and I liked a couple, however late in the game it is for me.
One woman recalled her father telling her on her wedding day, "Sometimes you have to apologize not because it's your fault, but because it's your turn."
Another said, "Most people can learn to do almost anything, but if you can't get along with people, you will never get anywhere in life."
And my favorite:
"Don't play chicken with someone who doesn't care."
