Default Dads Legacy

My Father was not a wood worker, so he did not leave me any great tools.
When this time of year comes around and I have an abundance of bell peppers, I think of the great salad dressing he use to make. The recipe was given to him from a small Italian restaurant at 12th and Geary, in San Francisco, in 1944.

Chop; one small onion, one stalk of celery, one green pepper and one or two cloves of garlic.

Fill pint jar with, 1/3 cup wine vinegar, 1/3 cup of chili sauce or catsup, 1/3 cup olive oil. Add fresh ground pepper, 1/2 t. of Italian seasoning, 2 or 3 drops of Worcestershire sauce.
Combine all ingredients and allow to marinate. The longer you can wait the better it tastes.
Every time I make it I sware I am going to make a quart or more.

My Dad was a gifted man as you can see from the sail boat he made as a junior in high school. Dad was a perfectionist so many projects were never finished (not good enough). Sometimes when I am in the middle of something I wonder how it would be if he were here working together?? It would be great, him trying to make it perfect and me trying to get it done. It is great to have memories. Sorry for focus being out.

My dads legacy is that even though not a "woodworker" he instilled in me a desire to pull things apart, check them and put them back together.

For a clerk, this is unusual.

I believe I get my woodworking skills from him.

He (and my mum) built a house from the ground up. I can recall him making simple wooden toys for us kids many years ago.

Co-incidentally, last month was the 1st anniversary of his passing away.




we have learned nothing at all if we have not learned from our fathers......

Sorry to hear that. My Father has been gone for 38 years. I still miss Him. He was 40 when I was born and I was still only thirty. How old was Your Father? It appears that You must have enjoyed His company for many years. That is a blessing, But You will always have His menory to hold on to. For Ted, Jerry James, BJ, and all who post. We find out many times in life that are parents are special. That love grows many times after We must part company. Thank You all for sharing, I did not mean to take over Your post, Ted. Memories are a great part of life.

Mine is 90 and still active. He only stopped driving last year. I have some of his tools. We were always allowed to use his tools but with the rigid proviso that we put them back where we found them.

I often think of him when I'm doing something and imagine showing him what I'm doing.

I'd love to get him here to see how beautiful it is here in Istria. He came down for the wedding 10yrs ago in Zagreb but I don't think I'll get him here now.

Cheers

Peter

Default Memories

I don't feel anyone took over my thread! It was about a memory of my Dad, and it reminded others of their memories. This is good. I just turned 71, and my Dad died when he was 52, 40 years ago. He found out he was to become a GrandFather, and a month and 1/2 and he was gone. If anyone tries that salad dressing, they will find that its something that they can pass on, and people will remember them for that Great Dressing.

Ted, Creswell Oregon
