Remembering my dad’s words

One of my friends asked others to remember things their dads said. Here’s what I responded, and I’d love to hear your dads’ words, as well:

“Make sure it has antlers before you pull the trigger.”

My first time deer hunting, and I didn’t have a doe permit. More importantly, he didn’t want me to shoot a cow.

I didn’t. One shot, one deer down. First time out. Thirteen years old. 1968.
