Happy Father's Day



“When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.”
-Mark Twain


Happy Father's Day, lovey! See you soon.

One of my father's favorite quotes. He said it often. How right Twain was.

Ain't it the truth? I think my IQ doubled when my daughter hit 18, and her father's did, as well.

We have a teenager that age! You can imagine how stupid my husband and I are at the moment.

The Clever Pup said...

Yes, we have a boy who's 15. We are incredibly stupid at the moment. I can't be seen with him in public or be near the door when he leaves.

His brain will come back soon I hope.
