A Few Rules To Live By

DSC_0853-001

 

Dear Lincoln,

I want to share with you some rules that my Pappa shared with me many years ago and they have served me well.  I hope that you take these to heart and follow them as you grow and one day teach them to your children.

If you open it, close it.

If you turn it on, turn it off.

If you unlock it, lock it up.

If you break it, admit it.

If you can’t fix it, call in someone who can.

If you borrow it, return it.

If you value it, take care of it.

If you make a mess, clean it up.

If you move it, put it back.

If it belongs to someone else and you want to use, get permission.

If you don’t know how to operate it, leave it alone.

If it’s none of your business, don’t ask questions.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

If it will brighten someone’s day, say it.

If it will tarnish someone’s reputation, keep it to yourself.

 

I love you little man, Puppa.
