when i was just a kid about maybe 7 or 8 , my dad took me to town , bought me a second hand bike, doubled me over to the miners hall then told me to take the bike and head for home, well i did , couple of hours later he came home i had the bike upside down back wheel off all the insides of the axle pulled apart , he was quite upset with me told me to figure a way to get it back together if i ever wanted to ride it again, i did. all my life that lesson stuck with me, i used to borrow his tools until i lost a few or failed to put them back where i got them, then i was told no more, tools are expensive buy your own then you,ll appreciate them more , i did,im now a grown man with my own tools my dad is gone, i fix everything that needs fixing wheather i know how or not i learn , but the most important thing i learned was from my dad who took the time to see to it that i had to learn my way myself , for that im grateful, at the time i thought he was being hard and didn,t care, now i know differently, he was preparing me for a world where i would have to take care of myself and not to rely on others, because you can,t.thanks dad, i,ll never forget.
