My wise old pa came out with a few
When I was about 6 I begged my Pa for a sip of his beer, it was horrible and I remember trying not to gag
"one day son you will learn to love beer and at times need it"
When I got divorced from my first wife he did remind me of a saying he gave me when I got my moped 25 years earlier
"if it has got either t!ts or wheels it will be trouble and cost you a fortune"
I do miss the smug dry old sod
