A Thousand Words Thursday

Cheaper Than Therapy

Continuing with my Father’s Day A Thousand Words Thursday Theme, here’s a mini collage of my Dad when he was young. What a handsome guy! I remember Dad telling me about how he was always getting picked on because of how his ears stuck out. There was this kid on his bus that used to “flick” his ear all the time and how Dad hated it! Dad said that he could only put up with it so long until finally one day he just turned around and backhanded the kid. Dad said he didn’t get messed with after that! lol
