Today is the birthday of a writer, reader, artist, musician--my dad. He died last July, or else he'd be celebrating his 96th today. I think he'd like the convertible I chose for this post.
I know I won't list all of them, but I want to tell you some things I learned from him. (Listed in no particular order.)
1. Drive a cool car.
2. Family is VERY important.
3. Exercise every day.
4. Eat healthfully, and take your vitamins.
5. Always use correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
6. Remember the past, but don't live there.
7. Enjoy every day as if it's a gift. It is.
8. Don't get the big head.
9. Conserve water.
10. Look neat and tidy when you greet the world.
11. Always be pleasant to people, no matter how they treat you.
12. Work hard.
14. Encourage people, but don't give them the big head, either.
15. Possessions are okay, but they're just things. Don't get too attached.
16. Live a simple, honest life.
17. Listen to good music. If it's live, request your favorite song.
18. Be informed.
20. Live within your means.
21. Read. A lot.
22. Use good posture.
25. Enjoy your birthday.
