What is your fondest childhood memory of your father or grandfather?

Sadly, I don't have many memories of my actual father that aren't 'in passing'. It's as if he's just enjoying his new marriage so much the past 28 years or so that he doesn't show for my mom's set of his six kids unless one of us graduates or is dying.

My grandfather -- his father -- was fabulous, though. It's sad he's not still around. I have great memories of watching him watch baseball. Memories of being curled up in his lap and tweezing his whiskers. Memories of trying to be helpful when he cared for his many dogs. I loved that man.

Yes! He wasn't perfect, but he was there. And for a huge guy, he was very tender with his grandkids in general.
