    This should once again confirm that the most important information in your life won't come from a teacher, the library or the Internet, but from a mentor, and on a very personal level.

    My long-passed grandfather's birthday is coming up, and for me it's a time to reminisce. The long walks we used to take. The long drives. The special trips he would make to pick me up so I could spend weekends with him, and the advice he used to give!

    Much was wasted because I was young when he died. If he were alive today and sharing his gems of wisdom, I'd be a better man.

    Those gems were well and good, but the one I remember most, the jewel in the crown of grand fatherly advice, came when he paused, looked me in the eye and said, "Don't marry a woman with big hands. It makes your pecker look smaller."

    Brings a tear to your eye doesn't it?

    I picked my grandpa up at the airport when he visited one time. We were at the bagage claim and I asked him what his bag looked like. his response was " brown wrinkled and hairy". I spit coffee out my nose I laughed so hard.

    My grandfather told my dad, who in turn told me about marriage. He said marriage is a 50 / 50 relationship. 50% for her and 50% against you.
