Wednesday Hodgepodge: Daddy Dearest

Wednesday Hodgepodge questions come from
What do you think makes a good dad?
Good dads love God more than anyone else.  That way they know best how to love others.  Good dads provide for their children; not just financially, but emotionally as well.  Good dads laugh and cry in front of their children and are willing to say both “I was wrong” and “I love you.”  Good dads hug a lot.  Good dads defend their children when they need it, and tear up their children’s rear ends when they need it.  Good dads support their wives/baby’s mamas. Good dads don’t hit the mother of their children with a fist or with words.
What is something you learned from your own father?
I learned about cars from Daddy.  I know how to pick out a good car, but Dad also told me to always take a man with me when I shop for cars to keep from getting ripped off.  I also learned from him how to get a general idea of what’s wrong with a car by sound it does or does not make.
It’s your birthday, what kind of cake will we be having?
A cake that is in the shape of a New Balance running shoe.  It will be Red Velvet on the inside with cream cheese icing.  **purrs like Eartha Kitt**  Oh yeah, we need butter pecan ice cream to go with it.  **purrs like Julie Newmar**
When you're faced with a big decision are you more of a go with your gut type of person, or are you someone who reasons it all out, weighing the pros and cons?
A little of both.

June is National Dairy Month.  What's your favorite dairy item?  Most often purchased dairy item?
My favorite dairy item is ice cream, but the most often purchased would be plain yogurt.  I like to mix it with fruit.  I’m also going to learn how to make smoothies/shakes with yogurt and fruit.
Explorer Jacques Cousteau was born on June 11, 1910...what's something you've recently discovered or something you'd like to explore?
I would love to go scuba diving and explore the ocean. I would love to travel and see new places and experience new cultures.
Are you typical of your generation?
Absolutely not! 
Insert your own random thought here.
I really miss my dad.



  1. I LOVE this picture!! I agree with your talking points about great dads. Mine did just about all of those things. He was willing to go against his professional beliefs to help me. God bless your father(rest his soul) and mine. Thank you for posting this...I've enjoyed it. GBY!!!

  2. Every time I see that photo of you and your Dad it just melts my heart. It is such a sweet picture and I know how much it means to you. YES to the smoothies with yogurt and fresh fruit. It's so much more refreshing to me than ice cream...although I still crave ice cream. Can I just say that I'm glad you aren't "typical for your generation"...I like you just the way you are!
