For Fathers

Posted on 15 Jun ’08 by Earl Moore



My Father

When I was …

  • Four years old: My daddy can do anything.

  • Five years old: My daddy knows a whole lot.

  • Six years old: My dad is smarter than your dad.

  • Eight years old: My dad doesn’t know exactly everything.

  • Ten years old: In the olden days, when my dad grew up, things were sure different.

  • Twelve years old: Oh, well, naturally, Dad doesn’t know anything about that. He is too old to remember his childhood.

  • Fourteen years old: Don’t pay any attention to my dad. He is so old-fashioned.

  • Twenty-one years old: Him? My Lord, he’s hopelessly out of date.

  • Twenty-five years old: Dad knows about it, but then he should, because he has been around so long.

  • Thirty years old: Maybe we should ask Dad what he thinks. After all, he’s had a lot of experience.

  • Thirty-five years old: I’m not doing a single thing until I talk to Dad.

  • Forty years old: I wonder how Dad would have handled it. He was so wise.

  • Fifty years old: I’d give anything if Dad were here now so I could talk this over with him. Too bad I didn’t appreciate how smart he was. I could have learned a lot from him.

    I love it, Earl! Fortunately, my boys, aged 16 and 24 still think that I know something! :-)
