Philosophy of Doc’s dad, who the grand kids affectionately called GW.
All though a mechanic and farmer, GW was a very intelligent man with a clear philosophical understanding of right and wrong. Old school boys had an understanding not muddled up by political correctness, loss of moral values, or urges for power and fame.
GW’s quaint little sayings were simple, yet they deeply illustrated his understanding of life.
- Good for what ails ya
- If it was a snake, it would have bit you
- Don’t let the door hit you on the way out
- Use your head for something besides a hat rack
- You can go swimming, but don’t get wet
- Fine as frog’s hair
- Better than a Poke in the Eye with a Sharp Stick
- Keep your mouth shut. You will learn more
- Wear a hat or your brains will cook
- If wishes were fishes…
- GW was also loved poetry
