Answer Me This: Father's Day Edition

It’s Sunday and time for Catholic All Year‘s Answer Me This linkup!
1. What’s the best thing about your dad?
me and daddy at graduation 2
One great thing, that strikes me because as a parent I have not lived up to this ideal:  When I was a teenager, my father would come pick me up from the fan bus to whatever far-away football or basketball game I had attended, sometimes as late as 1:00 in the morning.  He NEVER complained.
2. If you’ve got kids, what’s the best thing about THEIR dad?
My husband never stops trying to be a better father, and he’s not afraid to apologize when he’s wrong.

3. What’s the best advice your dad ever gave you?
When I was in (many) spelling bees in grade school, and he was making me study when I didn’t want to, he told me that I could quit any time, but if I was going to compete I had to do my best.
4. What’s something you have in common with your dad?
When I was a little girl, I loved Nancy Drew.  Whenever I got a new book, my father always wanted to read them.  He was always joking about Nancy’s sporty roadster and her pretty frocks.
5. What’s the manliest thing you know how to do?
I try to avoid learning how to do manly things because then I have no excuse for making the men around here do them.  In fact, I think I will keep all the manly knowledge I possess a secret. 🙂
6. Who is your favorite fictional dad?
If anyone who has read To Kill a Mockingbird  picks anyone other than Atticus Finch, they must have something wrong with them. 😉  Atticus doesn’t just give good advice, he lives according to his beliefs: “Before I can live with other folks I’ve got to live with myself.
That’s it for this week.  Happy Father’s Day, and be sure to click here to check out the other entries in the linkup.

    I agree with your thought process on #5. 🙂
    I have never read To Kill a Mockingbird. It is on my long book list, but I have seen the title pop up a lot lately. I may need to add it to my short reading list soon.
