It's time for John's Weekend Assignment, found HERE.
"Weekend Assignment #64: Tell us about a moment with your dad that serves as an example of one of his best qualities. That would be a personal moment between you and dad."
I must have been VERY young when this happened, perhaps four. I recall a Sunday morning when Daddy was reading the Des Moines Register while he sat at the switchboard in our living room. Mother was probably getting ready for Church, and somebody always had to be with the switchboard. Anyway, I was sitting on Daddy's lap looking at the comics (I think Lil Abner was one) as he read them to me. The picture in my mind is as vivid as if it happened yesterday, and I can almost hear his voice and see the colors of the "funny papers".
Extra Credit: Pictures, naturally -- perhaps from right about the time you were born.
I've used this one before, but I like my dad's tousled, hillbilly look here. That's my half-brother, my half-sister, my mom holding me, and my dad.
