“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.”
that Mark Twain eh? what a guy
What an amazing quote! I love it!
great twain quote! funny how our view of our fathers (parents) changes as we get older. Esp when we have kids ourselves. may you and yours have a great fathers day.

I love that quote so much. And Mister Peanut? one of my all-time favorite cultural icons!
I always say that the older I got, the smarter my father became.
Hi! CleverPup!Short and exactly to the point!Happy Father's Day to you, and yours!...Oh! yes, the Twain quoteis a nice touch!Thanks, for sharing!DeeDee ;-D
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.
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.
