When I was:

Four years old: My daddy can do anything.

Five years old: My daddy knows a whole lot.

Six ears old: My dad is smarter than your dad.

Eight years old: My dad doesn't know everything.

Ten years old: In the olden days, when my dad grew up, things sure were

Twelve years old: Oh well, naturally, Dad doesn't know anything about that.
He is too old to remember his childhood.

Fourteen years old: Don't pay any attention to my dad.  He is so

Twenty-one years old: Him?  My Lord, he's hopelessly out of date.

Twenty-five years old: Dad knows about it, but then he should, because he's
been around so long.

Thirty-five years old: Maybe we should ask Dad what he thinks.  After all,
he's had a lot of experience.

Forty years old: I wonder how Dad would have handled it.  He was so wise.

Fifty years old: I would give anything if Dad were here now so I could talk
this over with him.  Too bad I didn't appreciate how smart he was.  I could
have learned a lot from him.
