Father's Day is when we honor our Dads. We get them ties or "World's Greatest Dad" mugs and share the memories. I got "Fudgie The Whale" As Tom Carvel used to say "It's a whale of a cake for a whale of a Dad"

As time goes on, the one memory that lasts is the advice he gave you. I can still hear my father's voice in my head when I'm trying to make a decision. He had a way of seeing through the BS and boiling it down to the truth. Many times I hear him when planning my shows.

Now that I'm a father, I feel the need to pass along words of wisdom to my twin boys. Many times at the tender age of 14, I watch it go in one ear and out the other. When that happens, I tell them, "maybe not now but one day you'll be faced with a situation and you'll remember this moment and my advice" And in their tender "know it all" 14-year-old response, they reply "Sure Dad" Looking forward to when i can tell them:I told you so"

Based on the Father's Day we're coming off of, I asked the question "What's the best advice your father ever gave you?
