A Dad's Hodgepodge Perspective

Dad's and cake. Couldn't get any better than this! Come on and join in!

1. What do you think makes a good dad?
This guy makes a fantastic dad. He's not too bad as a husband either. : )

2.  What's something you learned from your own father?
My boys have learned a lot from their father. Things like finding absolutely any reason to climb out on the roof, and the best way to throw toy soldiers with parachutes over the stair railing. 

I guess I ought to be grateful he hasn't combined those two, or I'd have boys parachuting off the roof.

3. It's your birthday-what kind of cake will we be having?
I love birthdays where I don't have to turn a year older yet! I will have some kind of chocolate cake with an extremely rich, creamy frosting. I'll also have some Cheesecake Factory cheesecake, and probably some cupcakes with sprinkles.

Sound like too much? Well, if it's not really my birthday, then the non-birthday birthday cakes won't have any calories, will they?
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?
When my gut calls the shots, I tend to put on weight.

 5. June is National Dairy Month. What's your favorite dairy item? Most often purchased dairy item?
Ice cream. Or, ice cream cake. Oh! That's another answer for the non-birthday birthday question! : )

 6. Explorer Jacques Cousteau was born on June 11, 1910....what's something you've recently discovered or something you'd like to explore?
I'd like to explore the life of a lady of leisure. First hand, of course.
 7. Are you typical of your generation?
Yes ... if typical means that all women my age brainstorm about the best way to blow up a car or hide a body. I mean in the interest of writing fiction, people! You're so suspicious!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
It's 90 plus degrees this week. The air conditioning in my van doesn't work. Everywhere I go I look like wilted lettuce.

It's not a good look for me.


  1. Oh,my gosh, you had me giggling and it is early in the morning and yet I am thinking about all kinds of treats, I wonder why? Boy, did I giggle on number 7. Something tells me you would go crazy being a lady of leisure :)

    Have a great day!

  2. Jill I can always use a laugh and you never fail to supply me with one. :)

  3. Your answer to #4 had me rolling!!

  4. Ice cream cake - now there's a thought! Especially with the heat you are having. Much better than wilted lettuce!

    I do like your #6 answer. I'd be glad to help you explore that. LOL

    Somehow I'm surprised your boys haven't come up with parachuting off the roof on their own....

    1. Linda, They probably have tried parachuting off the roof, but since the experiment didn't end up in the emergency room, I guess no one would have wanted to mention it to me. : )

  5. So sorry about the a/c not working in the van, but, hey, it's a great excuse to eat some ice cream--to cool off :)

  6. Thank you for your comment and no I didn't bring any cheesecake :) So many people today said chocolate cake. So you do like ice cream a lot. Since I've been doing low carbs for 18 months there are so many things I haven't had. Your making me want some ice cream. Sorry about the air conditioner in your car.

  7. your answers are hysterical!! I really enjoyed your "lady of leisure" answer. LOL!


Well don't just stand there! Say something! : )
