This is a question Dad stories

"Do anything good for your birthday?" one of your friendly B3TA moderator team asked in one of those father/son phone calls that last two minutes. "Yep," he said, "Your mum." Tell us about dads, lack of dad and being a dad.

I want to buy your Dad a beer.

I'm in Colorado. 24 hours notice enough?

Maybe not beer...hot chocolate perhaps? He's a near-teetotaler...
but I did get him drunk for the first and only time when he was 69 years old. His dad had just died, and we were sitting in the guy's house talking about...everything. I kept pouring him Wild Turkey and Sprite until he realized that he was slurring his words. Then the conversation got *really* good. He let me into places of his mind that I don't think my mom even knew of. Quite the eye-opening event.

He is a pretty amazing fella--thanks for all your kind words. I'm just glad we both lived long enough to get past the usual dad/son friction. I still don't think he "gets" me--we're 40 years apart fercrissakes, so it's no real surprise--but I know I'm lucky he's my dad.
