Friday Fives

1. In your opinion, what characteristics make a good father? Also, what traits make a good grandfather? Patience and realistic expectations. Dads who expect their son to be the football star or relive their youth vicariously through their kids are kind of lame and overbearing.

2. Do you have any special plans for this Father's Day weekend? Not really. Probably just a quick call home to the Ranch to wish Jim well.

3. Who's your favorite "television dad"? Andy Griffith, followed by Dick Van Dyke.

4. What's the most important thing that your father ever told you? Career advice Do what you want to do and love, make sure you are happy and whatever you do, don't go to work for the Post Office. I probably could, and in fact have on this blog already, lapse into long essays on GW, but not today. Although he was in my dream last night. He was getting the dandelions out of the front yard while mom and Jim packed up the motorhome to go to the ranch. There was so much going on in that specific dream that I could keep a therapist busy for years.

5. Is your father difficult to buy Father's Day gifts for? Why/why not? What types of things does he like? He used to be. We always got him a tie, since he wore one to work everyday and really enjoyed the ones we got him. For my stepfather, a gift card to Home Depot is still the best thing ever. They will never be done building the house.
