this day in 1948

Today is Big Jer's birthday. Happy birthday, Dad. I wish I were home to celebrate - we'd eat a Bloomin' Onion and listen to Mom scold us about calories and artery blockage.

In honor of this sacred occasion, I present a selection of some of my favorite nuggets of fatherly wisdom.

"The path of least resistance is the path of least rewards."
"Don't spend it just 'cause you got it."
"When asked, don't lie. But you don't have to advertise."
"If it were easy, everybody would do it."
"Don't tell your mother."
