Saturday 9

(Link in meme-roll)
Daddy's Little Man (1969)
... because it's Father's Day weekend
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This song is about an afternoon visit between a father and son. What are your plans for Saturday afternoon?
I worked, so my goal was to get through the afternoon without losing my shit.
2) The lyrics talks about enjoying an ice cream cone. Do you have any ice cream in your freezer right now?
I just discovered a pint of Ben & Jerry's in the downstairs freezer. I'd forgotten I'd bought it. Perhaps I'll have some for dessert.
3) Sam's father hates it when she swears. When is the last time you cursed?
I swear all the time. I came home from work full of spleen and swore up a storm.
4) In a recent ranking of movie dads, Mufasa (Lion King) and Atticus (To Kill a Mockingbird) got very high marks. Who is your favorite movie or TV father?
Pretty much has to be Pa Ingalls, doesn't it?
5) Sam's own father often traveled for business, and always remembered to bring her the little complimentary soaps, shampoos or body lotion he got from the hotel. When you take a trip, do you bring back souvenirs?
Yes. Including the soaps, shampoos, and lotions from the hotels.
6) Back when Sam was in high school, it was her father who gave her driving lessons. Who taught you how to drive?
My dad, mostly, and my mom a bit. And Driver's Ed, but not very much.
7) Sam's own father is easy to buy for: every year he wants a new pair of loafers, so every year for Father's Day she gives him a DSW gift card. Would you rather receive a gift that someone chose, even though it might not be just right, or do you prefer a gift card or cash so you can get exactly what you want?
If a gift is well-chosen and unexpected that's fine. If it's crap, then...no.
8) For family barbecues, Sam's dad dons his "Kiss the Chef" apron and mans the Weber. What's the last thing you cooked on the grill?
I don't cook on the grill. Sparky cooked his dad steak for lunch today though. I had a leftover piece for dinner. Yum.
9) Sam's father satisfies his afternoon sugar craving with an almost endless stream of Butter Rum Lifesavers. When you crave a snack, do you usually want something sweet or salty?
Sweet. Definitely.

I don't know if Pa Ingalls is a good choice because I've only seen two episodes of Little House ever. Because they both made me cry. I mean, I really bawled, like I did after Old Yeller. So while I loved Little Joe, I'm almost afraid of Pa Ingalls.

Now go eat your ice cream. You deserve it!

At the beginning Pa was perfect, just as in the books. Then he got very, VERY earnest and far ahead of his time as the seasons passed.
I like Pa in the books best. ;-)

No ice cream tonight. I'll have some as a reward tomorrow.

Pa Ingalls--how did I forget about him??

Pa Ingalls takes me back a bit but wasn't he handsome? He could've smacked my naught bot any day!
