My father died almost 10 years ago but the last time I saw him in person was at my college graduation, which was definitely a memorable day!

During my childhood, my dad worked two jobs and was almost never home. However, I remember one evening he got off work early and made a blanket fort with my sister and I while we watch wrestling on t.v. That eventually became our Saturday night ritual if my dad was home early enough. Another memory is sledding in the winter.

I have many great memories of my dad. One of them is going into town with my dad on a Saturday. He would do his errands and then take me to a gas station and treat me to a snack and a drink. That is memorable because it didn't happen that often since money was tight.

My most memorable encounter with my dad is the time I let him read some of my manuscripts for a dark fantasy novel I wrote about a Succubus demon. He was enjoying it until his very British, prudish self, reached a sex scene (not even an overly graphic one) He gave me a look like he had no clue who his daughter was! It was hilarious. He said 'Ok, no more of that for me, I think'. I was rolling around laughing because his cheeks were pink!

As his youngest daughter, he likes to think of me as the innocent baby of the family....think I shattered that well and truly :)

When I told my dad that I was pregnant with my daughter and I saw him trying to suppress his tears but I know, I just know...he doesn't want me to see him crying. And I was so touched by that simplest moment because I know he cares and he loves me more than I know he does.

I love my father, but I cannot shake off one particular bad memory from my childhood. I was about seven at the time, and absolutely idolized my father. We had been in the car, waiting out the traffic of getting into the overcrowded church. I don't even remember what I had been doing, but I do remember that he had called me stupid. It had made me cry- silently of course. It hurt a lot because my mother was the disciplinarian. I couldn't believe that my perfect father could call me something that was equivalent to the F-word when I was seven. Ever since then, I have been very sensitive when it comes to the word "stupid".

That is an awesome memory! Also, it feels really good to have your loved ones read your work! I write children stories and my dad barely reads anything (I have no idea how I'm his daughter :roll2: ). So it's hard to get my dad to read my stories and get his opinion about it. It's great that your dad did that for you. :D

I have an excellent father. He spent time with me when I was growing up, and he is still a major source of support now that I am an adult. Because of this, I have an endless supply of memorable experiences with him. He drove me to horse-riding lessons, he took me camping and hiking, and he helped me excel in school by teaching me at home, so I had a head start in my classes.

I would say, though, my most memorable moment was when my first dog passed away. After the burial, my father came up to me, handed me my dog's collar, and hugged me tighter than anyone has ever hugged me before. I was 17, and it was the first time I had seen my father cry. I will never forget that moment, and I look back on it with mixed emotions.

That is absolutely wonderful! You had a great father!

I have enjoyed the time my father and I have spent by ourselves in general. Every time we go play tennis together or go up to see my grandparents just the two of us. We often argue like brother and sister, but I think we both just like having someone to argue with without getting made at each other. He is always the one who helps me with homework assignments as well. I just enjoy all of the moments that we have together.
