“Don’t trust anyone” The best advice you ever got from your father.
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?

Referring to gambling...the best way to double your money is to fold it and put it in your pocket.
