Pas: Really, I can’t take the credit for picking up skills fast. It’s just a habit I got into — and it was my father who gave me all the motivation.
Pas: Oh, yes!
Papa had a bit of a temper, you see. My older sibling, Dexie, was always getting on his bad side . . .
But he’d put Dexie down right away if I wanted to show him something I’d learned! It made him so proud.
Of course, it wouldn’t hold his interest for as long if I tried the same thing twice, so I had to keep advancing . . . But, gosh, you both have dads, right? You know how they are.
