    Thumbs up The Family Motto started with Henry Ford .. Who knew??

    Even as a kid the "Evans Family Motto" has always been: "Whether you think you can, or you think you can't ... you're right."

    Pure random reading killing time and found this:

    "Quote of the Day: "If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right." Henry Ford (1863 - 1947)"

    I had no idea where 'the where' of this ... well, started.

    I'll be danged!

    Our family motto was

    "Use your head for something other than a hat rack"

    At least that's what my father always told me.

    I suspect your Father and I would have gotten on very well indeed.
