Big Daddy Hodgepodge

1. What do you think makes a good dad?
~ Someone who loves his children unconditionally (and shows it), keeps them safe (without coddling them), and teaches them the important lessons and values in life.

2.  What's something you learned from your own father?
~ I learned a lot of valuable things from my dad, the two biggies would be...

  1. If a job is worth doing, it's worth doing well.  Why bother doing a job at all if you're going to do it poorly?  Not too many people seem to get this today.
  2. If you want something, WORK for it.  Nobody owes you anything.  Again, something few seem to grasp in today's world.
3. It's your birthday-what kind of cake will we be having?
~ Either chocolate or marble...with whipped icing.  Buttercream is just too sweet and heavy.

4. 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? 
~ Most of the time I'm a go with the gut kind of person.  Sometimes that's a good thing.  Sometimes not so much.

5. June is National Dairy Month. What's your favorite dairy item? Most often purchased dairy item? 
~ Cheese.....glorious cheese!

6. Explorer Jacques Cousteau was born on June 11, 1910....what's something you've recently discovered or something you'd like to explore?
~ We're going to Chincoteague in July.  We've gone there on family vacations when the kids were younger.  I'm looking forward to exploring the adult life of the island.

7. Are you typical of your generation?
~ I don't know.  Probably not.  I'm a devout Christian, politically conservative, anti-abortion, and pro-gun rights.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

~ Saw this on Pinterest this week and loved it.  So very true.

Everyone sure does like their chocolates cakes today! That is a wonderful quote.

I have always wanted to visit Chincoteague. Something about the ponies I guess. Hope you have a great time.

Stacy said...

Sandie...Yeah, but not together! Or maybe...

Debby...Chocolate cake, it goes with everything. ;)

Susan...I read "Misty of Chincoteague" when I was around 9 years old. I found out about a year later that it was true and I started dreaming about going then. I had to wait until I was married and in my later 20s to get there but I loved it so much we go back every few years. This will be our first time being there for the pony swim, though. I'm so excited...it's a bucket list item.

I think we're a similar generation. Probably more like us than it seems, maybe just not as vocal and/or not in the media : )
