Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

- Dylan Thomas

Whispering and bowing when the west wind passes,
Happy lark and nestling, hid beneath the mowing,
Root sweet music in you, to the white clouds growing!"

Rodney Dangerfield in "Back to School".

Sorry about that, but it's the first time that I had heard that poem.

And it was perfectly used in that movie.

As of yesterday it has been 7 years since my father died and also on the 29th of June my grandson is now 7 years old.

Even though he was not the "father of the year" I still think about him now and then.

Despite that, he was a very creative guy. He could make anything out of wood or metal, but with that vicious hair trigger temper he just did not have the information to get patents on his creations.

Unfortunately I do not possess the skills he had, but I do my best at giving digital boob jobs.  ;D

Much respect. Old bump, but thanks for posting. That generation was really, really something else.
