Writer's Block: Father nature  
What is your fondest childhood memory of your father or grandfather?

When I was really little, I used to sit on his lap and he would sing me "Delia, the Witch of the Wildwood," Or maybe it was "Velia" or Ophelia or something, but I heard Delia because that was the name of the lady who cleaned our house, and I loved her.
I was Daddy's little girl till my brother Chris was born when I was about three. Then I was Daddy's little nothing.

I'm so sorry that happened to you. It did to me, too, when my brother was born; I was seven and could really tell that there had been a sea change in both my parents, but especially Dad. Fortunately, I have a rational side and am able to love and be friends with my brother, because I know it wasn't his fault. How do you feel about your brother?

I love him but he is an overweight rage-aholic, so I have to practice a lot of acceptance and detachment...

My best memories of my father involve times when he stopped teasing and mocking me, and treated me as he did my brothers. He taught me to shoot a pistol and to respect guns, took me along on camping-fishing overnights and hikes. I loved me brother as sister and assistant mother--they were two and four years younger. Now that we're grown up, one lives in another state and we never see each other anymore. The other died a couple of years ago, and he was the one who phoned and visited though he lived even farther away.
