Dad was quite a card. Mom used to enter all kinds of contests she heard on the radio or read in the paper. She was working on a slogan for Carnation milk late one night then left it on the table. When Dad came in after midnight he fixed the fire for the night then noticed what she was working on.
He played with it and when he was satisfied put it in the envelope. Mom absently sealed the envelope for one of us kids to mail as we went to school inthemorning. Imagine her surprise when she got back a letter saying congratulations on your entry but we are afraid we cannot use your slogan. Mom looked at the entry and this is what it said:
"Carnation milk, the best in the land,
Here I stand with the can in my hand.
No tits to pull, no shit to pitch,
just punch a hole in the son-of-a-bitch".
Dad got an earful for that one.
I do miss you, Dad. [mehr]
