Our friend, Angel, a.k.a. Drama Mama, nominated my post, Pens and Pocket Knives, for January’s Perfect Post Awards. I am humbled and honored by this (considering the company)… and as noted to the left I accept on behalf of all the men who have come before us, who have taught us right from wrong, who have shown us what it means to be a real gentleman, who have set the example and continue to influence us to this day.
Men learn how to be men from other men. We learn how to treat a woman by watching our fathers love our mothers, and our grandfathers take care of our grandmothers. We learn how to be gentleman from watching true gentle men. Father’s are not easily impressed by their sons, but they’re always proud of them. As men, we’re remembered by the character of the men we raise.
