    Very hard working, kind, a man who cares about his family. A good footballer in his day to boot !!

    I consider myself very lucky.

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the darkness at Tan Hauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time like tears in rain. Time to die

    My Dad is a good man, who has always put his 3 children before himself.

    With a good sense of humour and liked by everyone he meets (as far as I know), I would be very happy to turn out like him.

    Remember when kids would say things like "My Dad's bigger than your Dad!"  Well I never got that!!  

    As an ex para and built like a brick outhouse just about everyone knew my old fella.

    Has heart trouble nowadays, so lost a lot of weight and is a shell of what he once was.

    Still wouldn't mess with him though!

    a hard working man, from a family of 5 brothers and 2 sister.

    gets on with things and doesnt complain...complaining is time spent that could be used solving the issue he says.

    i've seen him rip a huge gash in his arm before and then sit in his truck, stitch it with needle and thread and then drive to the hospital calm as a hindu cow.

    he has supported me 120% through my training and prep.
    He sold some expensive hunting equipment to buy a decent camera/lenses/kit so the next time i'm on stage he can take better quality pics for me.

    he works to get me sponsorship in the local area for butchers.

    he always helped me out when i was short of cash and in a rut.

    i've moved back in with him while he has a full knee replacement to help out and also pay the mortgage...self employed = no paid sick leave.

    intelligent, good at sports in his day.

    Quite loud and does get angry a bit, never violent though. He seems to say the wrong thing a lot of the time, or doesn't think before he says it, probably down to lack of social skills being an only child or having his own business so no one really challenges him.

    He floats between been able to take a joke and not being able to take one. I don't care i just take the p*ss, only person I've never been able to break down and not take life so serious.

    Mine died when I was 9 of bowel cancer so I never got to know him that well myself. But from learning about him from my Mum and his friends he was an intelligent, physically very strong man who had little ambition and liked a simple life. He was a good friend and would help anyone in need. So far I can see where I get my personality from. But, like many people of his generation, he was also terribly racist and homophobic. I often wonder whether I could have changed his views or whether he would have influenced mine.

    We should compare notes.
     
    Mine left us as children, he was a wife beating narcissist.
     
    25 years later, he rang my brother from a Middle East prison, and begged our help in getting him out. At great emotional and financial cost, we did.
     
    He returned to the UK, friendless and potless. Despite his complete lack of endearing qualities, I saw it as my mission to help him, after setting him up in a flat, getting him a job etc, he betrayed me terribly, stole from me, and had the police arrest me and charge me when (I think quite understandably), I smashed his front door after being betrayed.
     
    He has systematically gone through his life consumed by his own selfish ends, and he has 7 sons (4 half brothers, who I have no interest in but have met) who all despise him.
     
    Oh, and yes he also is an alcoholic, although that is no excuse. To this day, the only thing that makes me choke watching films is heroic acts by fathers for their children, as a true father would.
     
    My father is living proof that any idiot can make a child, only a man can be a father.

    A fantastic man that can be impossible at times!!
     
    He is a wonderful father who would do anything for his family, and never went to the pub etc.
     
    He can be very moody though and difficult to get on with, and we don't always see eye-to-eye, but he's very supportive of us all.
     
    Really only in the last 5 yrs or so that we have a brilliant relationship, and we go to matches together, fishing etc..
     
    Wouldn't swap him for the world.

    Lets start buildin' some hurtin' bombs

    He's got a beard and he likes a drink (socially).

    We get on well, despite me not having a beard.

    Whats your point?
     
    It looks like addressing that link to me you are in some way either mocking me or trying to get a rise Jacked?
     
    If so, I wouldnt bother, I am way past being emotional about the parenting or lack thereof I received.
     
    Care to explain?

    Emotionally retarded, pessimistic, negative, controlling, manipulative, selfish, unreasonable, narrow minded, blinkered and on and on...........

    Generally pretty f*cking useless as a father.

    How about yours john?
