Advice from my dad
My dad never had an education, he could not read or write but he was wiser beyound words. Some of the things he came up with were amazing.
One was when we were teenagers his advice was this...................Watch who you associate with..........choose your friends wisely. An example he gave us was, take a bushel of apples and let there be one rotten one in the basket and before long they are all rotten.......but take that same basket of rotten apples and put a good one in it and it never works to make them good again. Also he would say if you find your friends doing things that are against your morals get out fast before it overtakes you. I always told my children this and also that they only had one reputation and they were the only one that could keep it clean.
