I just have to say, I laughed, I cried, and my heart grew 10 sizes reading all your comments for the "favorite things" post. Thank you, thank you! You have blessed me by taking the time to tell me your favorite memories from times spent with your fathers. I really wish I could respond to each and every one of you personally, alas, time does not permit.
Now for the winner:
commentor #8, Susan, who's comment begins with, "I always used to help my Dad with fix it chores around the house. I loved going with him to the local electrician's shop, getting what we needed, and then going out with my Dad and the electrician to a nearby Kresge's (what was called a 5 and 10 cent store in those days) for a coke at the lunch counter."
