A belated Happy Birthday to you Jan !
I would like to share a brief but true story of my father with you if I may.
At the time my father turned 70 I was strongly considering moving and taking a new, much higher paying job out of province.
I discussed it with my father and asked what he thought. He said, 'Go! You go take that job and don't waste the opportunity!'.
Having his approval wasn't enough. He was 70 years old. I thought to myself, 'what if I am out there and some medical emergency arises and he needs me and I can't get to him.'
That settled the decision and I declined the job offer.
15 years later...(he will turn 86 in July) and do you know what he says to me?
(waggling finger at me) 'I tooold you 15 years ago to take that job in Calgary but noooo, you think you know better than your father. Now look at you!'
J, from one Allen Edmonds fan to another, Happy Birthday to you! Your posts on the forum are enjoyable to read and I look forward to many many more to come. Good health to you!
