  • Appropriate old sayings for spring and summer sports

    I admired my dad for many reasons. Some I inherited and passed along to the daughters and grand kids and some I did not inherit. Some I inherited and didn’t pass along, mainly because they didn’t need or want them. 

    My dad was a very patient person for the most part and one who would never intentionally say or do anything to offend anyone else. I inherited some of that quality, but not all and hope I passed it along. 

    There are some traits such as an old saying that fit every occasion, which I will go into in this column.
