Good AdviceI hope that this will once again confirm that the most important information in your life won't come from a teacher, the library or the internet, but from a mentor, and on a very personal level.
My long-passed grandfather's birthday is coming up, and for me it is a time to reminisce. The long walks we used to take. The long drives.The special trips he would make to pick me up so I could spend weekends with him, and the advice he used to give!
Much was wasted because I was young when he died. If he were alive today and sharing his pearls of wisdom, I'd be a better man.
Those gems were well and good, but the one I remember most, the jewel in the crown of grandfatherly advice, came when I was on 12. We were sitting in a park, watching children and their mothers enjoying a beautiful spring day. He told me that one day, I'd find a woman and start my own family.
"And son," he said, "be sure you marry a woman with small hands."
"How come, Grandpa?" I asked.
"It makes your pecker look bigger."
Kinda brings a tear to your eye, doesn't it?

"Nope," Tommy replied. "Bee flat."

Where Did She Go?
An elderly woman in her nineties had a visitor from her church come to see her at the nursing home.
â€œHow are you?â€ the visitor asked.
â€œOh,â€ said the elderly woman, â€œIâ€™m just worried sick!â€
â€œYou look like youâ€™re in good health. They take good care of you here, donâ€™t they?â€
â€œOh, yes, they take good care of me here.â€
â€œDo you have any pain?â€ the visitor asked.
â€œNo, I canâ€™t say I do,â€ the elderly woman replied.
â€œThen what has you worried sick?â€ the visitor asked.
The elderly woman leaned in and explained, â€œAll of my closest friends have already died and gone to heaven. Iâ€™m sure they are all wondering where I went!â€
