This morning while searching for a special Father’s Day quote to post to social media, I came across a cute one. If you follow me on Facebook, you’ll see the same one there. Sorry for the repeat.
The following instructional quote won’t pertain to most fathers of the present day though some moms may still use *cotton diapers. Many of you will remember diapering your babies with cloth diapers. Where did you get your instructions? 🙂 Enjoy the quote, Dads. It might help if you’re into baseball! 🙂 Happy Father’s Day. ❤
Spread the diaper in the position of the diamond with you at bat. Then fold second base down to home and set the baby on the pitcher’s mound. Put first base and third together, bring up home plate and pin the three together. Of course, in case of rain, you gotta call the game and start all over again. ~Jimmy Piersal, on how to diaper a baby, 1968
I lost my dad when my boys were teens. A favorite memory from my youth was going to work with him on some weekends. We lived in Detroit at the time. He was a heavy equipment operator and truck driver. He’d take me in the bull dozer with him on a half day of work. I remember sitting there so excited in the huge piece of machinery, amazed at how he operated it.
I loved everything about being with him on those weekends. However, I’d be terrified while he pushed load after load of whatever it was he pushed, over the edge into a humungous limestone quarry. I knew we were going over the edge! After work, we’d stop at a bar for lunch. I was too young to know where it was, but he knew all the guys there.
Later, his company moved their facility from Detroit to the Sibley Quarry in Trenton, Michigan where it remains to this day as an inactive limestone quarry. The link has an interesting tidbit about “Arm & Hammer” Baking Soda.
I know it’s hard to pick only one, but you’re welcome to share with us a favorite memory of your dad.
