Today is Father’s Day and what a great time to remind yourself of tidbits of wisdom you might have heard from your dad or grandfather! Now, my father, Stanley Lemmon always said, "Everything goes better with a little 'Lemmon' in it!" Okay, not a serious piece of advice, but it has always made me smile because my father was 5'7" and a bundle of energy. My hubby, Den, has said he remembers his hard-working blue-collar pops, Dick Koepke, saying, "measure twice, cut once." He said that applied to more than just tradecraft, too!
