My Hero

by Sandra Nachlinger

He taught me to

- bait a hook and clean my catch,
- hit a baseball and field a fly,
- pitch a tent and build a fire,
- memorize the multiplication tables,
- say please and thank you,
- saw a board, hammer a nail, and shingle a roof,
- drive a stick shift and change a tire,
- dance the Texas Two-Step

and demonstrated the qualities that make a fine man.

Happy Father's Day, Dad.

  1. Sandy, what a sweet tribute to your father. It gave me chills. My dad didn't fish, but he taught me to read, speak correctly, become a storyteller and so much more. We're lucky to have great dads, aren't we?

    1. My dad was an important part of my life in so many ways. The ones I listed were just the tip of the iceberg! Yes, we were lucky.

  2. I am so touched by your tribute to your dad. So wonderful.

    My dad taught me how to milk cows, make an electromagnet, shoot, ride, build a hot fire, and most of all, by the way he loved my mother, he taught me what kind of man I should find for myself.

  3. Nice post for us to reflect upon all the joys we experienced with our fathers. Thank you.
