["my father would catch the drift"]
for example, if you signed up to join the Navy - like my father in 1941 - you wouldn't get to pick what ship to board. you might like the new destroyer out of Halifax. you might get assigned to a dud for a long trip around Africa.
the brass plaque outside my shop door reminds visitors that life doesn't always go the way one desires.
