Father's Day Advice - from my friend Vinnie

Six shopping days remain until father's Day and you best get to steppin'.

The initial blog has stirred something in all of you, I know. AND it actually inspired three of you to send in your best/favorite bits of advice from your fathers.

I hope to include more and more each day;

Vinnie from Long Island, NY says his father dropped this chestnut on him at a very early age; "When choosing who to marry, between a good looker and a good cooker, pick the good cooker. A woman loses her looks over the years but never forgets how to cook." (Those of you who know Vinnie - are smiling right now. Although he may have some 'splaining to do when he gets home tonight.)

JR from NJ says his father told him; "Don't try to do everything yourself."

And another gem from my dad; "Take all you want, BUT eat all you take." This little comment has many applications and I did not realize that until later in life. Originally it was spoken to us as the family (9 children mind you) attacked an all-you-can-eat smorgasbord. My father is quite mindful of how much we have here in the US of A, but never wants us to waste anything.

Send me your dad's advice!
