This may work better for you than it did for me...

While making dinner I usually listen to John Tesh.
So on his program not too long ago he gave a list of 5 questions.
He claimed that if you were to ask your Dad these particular 5 questions,
you would learn a lot about this man you have known all your life.

Okay, so I took the challenge and asked my 82 year old Dad.
It was fun, but I can't say there was anything earth shaking about his answers:

1. What was dinner time like as a child?
"Clean your plate."

2. What is your favorite movie?
"Treasure of the Sierra Madre."

3. Who was your best friend growing up?
"My brother Gene."

4. What was the greatest game you ever saw?
"Stanford and Cal.....25 years ago."

5. Have you ever hit anybody?

My guess is that most from my Dad's generation would have answered #1 as he did,
which I think is sad. ...what if they weren't hungry?
And #2 I had never heard of but then I discovered it was made in 1948.

And in case you missed it.....especially if my Dad missed it, 
I am going to include something my brother Scott put on Facebook yesterday along with his caption.

Scott: "This bread has a mascot who has an uncanny resemblance to my Dad."

It looks so much like our Dad that I thought surely it was photo shopped.

I wish I could ask my dad any questions.
I saw that bread too. When I first saw it, I thought it was your dad until I saw the caption.

My dad passed away several years ago, but I think I could answer those questions.

Before I finished reading the end, I thought Scott had started a bread company and was using Grandpa as its icon.

I would have liked to ask my dad those questions. I think I know the answers to two or three of them. And that picture on the bread does have a resemblance to your dad. That is uncanny.

Yeah, really! Did they see a picture of your dad somewhere and steal his likeness? That does look exactly like him!

His favorite movie used to be Planet of the Apes...I guess he changed his mind.

Happy Thanksgiving, Jill! Hope you have a wonderful time with your great family. I love you all!

This was sweet, and the bread man really does look like your Dad!

'Just stopped by to say I hope you enjoyed a very Happy Thanksgiving. I haven't been blogging at all lately. We unfortunately have a war going on between some of the kids, so there is no family harmony here, so I just don't feel like blogging much. I decided not to do the usual big dinner this year for Thanksgiving. I'm hoping by Christmas enough time will have passed, and the Peace of the Holy Season will help.

Ray has been really depressed since the election too, I'm hoping he snaps out of it. I wasn't happy about the outcome either, but I just feel that we have to have Faith.

'So nice to visit here, Jill, brings me peace. I read back to Halloween (LOVED all the costumes!), and I'm going to try the roasted vegetables one at a time.

I think of you often, Jill.
Take care.
Love and Prayers,
