This goes out to all those men who have been uncles, fathers,
sons, caring mentors, brothers and grandfathers! There have been
teachers, social workers, neighbors and others who have played an
important role in children’s and teens’ lives, making a huge impact
and demonstrating good male role models. Thank you very much!
My Dad liked to look up cocktail mixes in his “Old Mr. Boston” book.
I was reading in the Preface an interesting description, published
in 1935, about the character of one who is an “Old Mr. Boston.”
It (with a few ‘tweaks’) could have described a Father or my Dad:
1. Official bartender.
2. Sympathetic best friend.
3. Jolly fellow.
Prankster, joker and sometimes tickler!
4. Rare individual.
5. Distinct personality.
6. Sterling values and qualities.
7. Genuine good nature.
8. Accepting of difficult tasks or chores.
9. Fixer of broken toys, bikes, or other odds and ends.
10. Errand runner.
11. His domain includes lawns and garage.
Sometimes gardens, too.
12. Giver of advice or suggestions.
13. Rule maker or ‘ruler of the roost!’
14. Someone to rely on in emergencies.
15. Chauffeur and changer of tires.
16. Champion of your causes.
17. Protector of the family.
18. Kindness, along with harshness.
19. Family vacation planner.
20. Barbecue ‘king.’
Hope this list is as ‘good’ as my Mother’s Day list and I welcome any
and all additions! Hope this one gave you some smiles and also, got
you to think of others who have played valuable roles in forming how
you have become.
