  8. My dad has always been for me, even now that I am an adult. I loved it when we were kids and we would all watch a scary movie. He would jump out behind us and scare us. I was reminded of this last week when he was over and we were removing a dead animal from under our house. He grabbed my husband and scared him. It was great. Kinda morbid but tons of fun!!!

  16. I lost my biological dad 9.5 years ago and not a day goes by that I don't think about him. I was his only girl and was such a daddy's girl. He was so kind, caring and loving. My mom remarried when I was very little and my step-father raised me as his own. He means the world to me. He walked me down the isle when my dad was too sick and danced a father/daughter dance with me without a second thought. He never once treated me as if I wasn't "his" daughter, even after Mom and he had a daughter of their own. Right now I am caring for my step-dad in his very final days in his battle with cancer. He fought so hard and was so brave through it all. It breaks my heart to know that he will not be here very soon.

  17. My dad was the best dad ever. He always had time for all 5 of us kids. He made the simplest things seem so special. He passed on 3 years ago and I miss him every day.

  20. We have 2 girls and my youngest was my husbands buddy at a lot of "guy things". My husband would take my youngest daughter to car shows with him. At these shows there are a lot of scantily clad girls. My daughter would catch my husband looking and she would tell him, "Daddy don't look, I'm telling mommy". And she did tell mommy!

Great giveaway and thanks for the chance to win.

LOL He is full of life and loves all of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Needless to say I was a Daddy's girl being the only girl. I love my Daddy!!!!

  27. My father was a wonderful man that we lost too soon! He was a 6'5" stature of man that would sit with his three girls and have a tea party and allow us to put rollers in his hair. Then he would run outside to play football/baseball/basketball with my 6 brothers. He worked nights so he can be home with us, he coached all the sports teams for all of us. He only knew 6 of his 20 grandchildren and he did the samething by working nights to babysit the little ones. He is a very missed man!

  28. One if my funniest dad memories was when a young man covered in tattoos cme to pick up my 16 year old sister to go out. My dad went outside with a shotgun in his hands and told the boy "I've been to prison and ill go back if you don't have her home by 8!" I just stood there laughing so hard!

  34. One of the funnest memories of my Dad involved a waterpark. While on holidays, my Dad, who is NOT a swimmer AT ALL, took us to an outdoor water slide park. I vividly watched my Dad take his first slide down a long straight waterslide. I almost fell over laughing as he hydro-planed across the top of the pool. The look on his face was priceless!!

  35. My dad is the most wonderful husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He married my mother and adopted her 4 children from a previous marriage and he has always been there for us in every way imaginable and still is at 76! There have been so many wonderful moments, sledding, teach me to ice skate and play golf, traveling all over the country and just teaching me how to be a good person. I feel truly blessed to be his daughter.

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway. Would love that camcorder so I could document great moments with my dad and our family!

  36. Dad currently resides in heaven with mom and each fathers day I pull out the scrapbooks and enjoy all the wonderful memories we made as a military family traveling all over the world. Dad loved God, Family and serving his country in the Air Force. He left his 5 children a legacy of service to others.

  37. My Dad died when I was about 7. My husband has been a FABULOUS father to our daughter. He would plan "secret" trips with her, keeping me out of the loop and they would put me in the car and then the fun would begin. Secret birthday party surprises, oh my. He is so loving and patient and kind with our daughter. He has taught her so many things about life and getting through life. I love him dearly and especially on Father's Day!

  38. I don't remember my Dad, but my husband was so great with the girls when they were little! The most fun was when he would get into whipped cream pie wars with them! I'd have to hose them off before they could come into the house! My girls loved it and so did my DH!

  41. One time my dad was showing old movies on a reel-to-reel projector. He had accidentally put the first reel on wrong so it was projecting the film upside down. Instead of stopping the projector, rewinding and reloading, my dad simply held the projector upside down as it played out the remainder of the film. That was decades ago and we still laugh about it today. He was such a funny and lovely man. I miss him! Thanks for the chance to win another wonderful giveaway.

  43. As my brother, my sisters and I live in Florida and my dad is in New York; I remember one time he decided that he was going to come down and see us. He left NY on a Friday afternoon, drove all the way to Florida for a very short visit. He then left to go back to NY so he could be at work on Monday morning. The things parents do for their kids.

  44. In my eyes my husband is the worlds best dad.We have 3 children and 2 grandchildren and whenever they need something he is there.I have 1 son that is a single dad and I have watched my husband go without things he needs just to help my son with things my grandchildren need.He never complains and would give anybody the shirt off his back if they need it.Recently I have been diagnoised with a few long last physical issues and he has been by my side and always ask me if I'm ok.He never worries about himself.I would be lost without him.He is the love of my life.

  65. Thanks for another great give away. My Dad has been gone for a lot of years but I have a lot of good memories. We were a farm family, up early and working together most days. One funny memory I have is the time he put me on a tractor (I was about 12) to drive from one field to another on a public road. He just didn't tell me what to do when it started rolling backward (toward the truck he was in). All came out well and it wasn't too funny at the time but I chuckle now -imagine a parent doing that today. Thanks Dad for the memories, I love you. Bert W

  72. Fantastic giveaway! My dad had a way of making me feel so special even though I was the baby of 5! I would sneak downstairs after bedtime and he'd sit me in front of the fireplace and tuck blankets around me and he'd tell me stories. When mom would discover I was not in bed he would tell her we were having an "important conference". I miss him so much!

  75. I am a daddy's girl. He is still very much alive and always there for me and my son. I do remember one father's day which was also my birthday, I was so mad when I got up and no one was home. There was no cake, presents or anything. When they got home, I let them know that they missed my birthday. Found out they had gone to pick up my birthday present. Made me feel really bad but I will always remember that. buck2@casscomm.com

  76. My dad and I had a difficult relationship when I was young, but it changed when I got married. I am fortunate that we ammended things years before his passing away... I have to say I will never forget his pranks, especially the ones he played on my siblings -it is never fun to be the target of pranks is it? LOL!- he used to be so serious those were the only moments where we would laugh. Now I am so fortunate to have a husband that not only cares but loves his family so much, he truly is an awesome dad. He would be thrilled to get a new camcorder and the lab credit and of course perfect excuse to get him into the Cricut craze right? Thanks for the chance to win!
    Have a wonderful day!

  77. My funnest moment with my husband, was at Easter. My husband loves boiled eggs, so he loves it when we dye eggs.

    One year, we dyed a raw egg and waited for him to get that one. All the children knew which egg it was, so they all gathered around when he grabbed that one.

    He did not disappoint. He cracked it against his leg. There was egg all over his leg.

    He didn't think it was as funny as I did.

  78. When I was little my Poppy was like my father. I have tons of great memories but I think my favorite was when he used to take me to the candy store even though my Granny said no. And then we would hid the little brown bags of candy all over the house and find them years later.

  80. My dad was more ornery than funny. but the funniest thing he ever did was perm his hair. It was the early 80's. Boys were getting perms in their rat tails (remember those?). But my dad didn't have long hair. So he just got an all over perm. Took him right back to the 70's - can you say 'FRO?

  82. I met my natural father @ 17. He was a blast to be around! I quickly learned the where's & whys of my many quirks I had that didn't seem like my mom's! My best memory was Easter morning, after staying the night @ his house, we walked to breakfast & he put his arm around me & said, "Happy Easter egg". I laughed so hard then but get all misty now that he is gone. To this day, every Easter morning I tell MY little girl, "Happy Easter egg"!! I LOVE it when she giggles! kweenbee_612@yahoo.com

  92. My dad always used to tickle us silly! He would make us say "please" and then "don't" and then "stop" and then he would say "Say it three times fast!" and we would say "Please don't stop, please, don't stop, please don't stop!!!" and he would say "Okay" and keep tickling! :) It's funny I still remember that some thirty years later!

  95. My Dad has been gone for 12 1/2 years now and not a day goes by that I don't miss him but we have so many fun memories and stories about his sense of humor! One that really stands out is how we would be all be in the car and be driving past someplace that we really wanted to go, like the ice cream place or something, and we would beg for him to stop and he would act like he was trying to turn the steering wheel but was really just moving his hands around the wheel - and he told us that he couldn't get the car to turn! Come to think of it, it wasn't too funny then because we really wanted ice cream but this is such a fond memory now! :-)

  97. I remember my Daddy taking me fishing and to catch bullfrogs. when we were done, he taught me how to clean and cook them. Back then I was real popular with the boys in the area. LOL Now that was fun!

  98. My Dad would round up the kids at a family gathering or any kids around. At dusk, really just as it got dark..... we all went out Banshee hunting. He would give out bags and fish nets just in case we found one. Somehow he would slip behind a tree, jump out and scare us. Of course we all ran home. Guess what! The next hunt we all went again with the hope to finally get a Banshee. Thanks for the giveaway

  99. My dad has the most warped sense of humor...and even though I am adopted I have the exact same kind...either you get it or you don't. I grew up in New Zealand but am a pasty white blonde girl. He and my mum adopted me when they where quite elderly and I am so thankful he said yes. He is a stalwart man who chooses not to drink or cuss..and golfs once a week...he is 97..going strong...guess he has it figured out. He used to play..... I'd rather...and looking back we used to beg for a different question but this is my dad he would say.... ...I' d rather slide down the banister of razor blades ....or.....put my hand in the blender. The whole fam would try to out do each other with something worse than his I'd rather....I thought it was terrible.i didn't want to do either but for some reason I would always beg to play with my brothers..and now my 3 ground kids play it with their kids and all my 5 brothers play it with theirs. I guess it's kinda gross but it makes me laugh hysterically that we would make up the most ridiculous things each worse than the other and my fab dad would say you gotta pick one or else.....or else what...we never got to that part but we had some pretty bad I'd rathers....a great hilarious memory. Here's to you dad....if you won Joys giveaway you could either keep it or would you rather put grandmas hand down the garbage disposal. Hahah..I guess perhaps this is not giving anyone a good impression of me but my dad is a magistrate judge attorney and it is just him. Thanks for helping me think of a great memory!! Happy Fathers Day to all the fab dads!! Joy you are the best!!

  100. My dad has be gone for almost 26 years, had him for only 36 years. He was always the life of the party, loved to help him around the farm.
    Thanks for the give away

  101. My dad was always a very hard worker and had to travel a lot for business. In order to have time with all 5 of us kids, he would take us on business trips with him. We would talk while driving around the state of Montana, sit in the car while he did his business and then he would take us to lunch somewhere special. At Christmas time he would take us down to the Bonanza 88 store, give us each $5 to buy gifts for the whole family (we got to be really creative) and would then take us to the Woolworths Store so we could have chili and crackers. I am so blessed to still have my wonderful dad in my life. Thanks for the opportunity to win an amazing giveaway

  102. My dad has passed away a few years ago.
    My fondest memory of my dad is his big heart. My dad married my mom when she was 8 months pregnant with her 5th child. Her 1st husband and father to those 5 kids passed away from cancer earlier that year. Dad married mom so she could keep her kids. I came along 13 months later, followed by 2 more kiddos. Dad supported all 8 of us kids and I appreciate that he made it possible for all of us to grow up together.
    Thanks Dad. I love and miss you.

  103. My parents are both gone, but my dad always made even work seem like fun. Once he took my older brother, my twin brother and me to pick up rocks to put in a big mud hole on our road. We worked hard and then threw the rocks into the mud hole making the biggest splashes we could! He just laughed and made bigger splashes! But we were ready to go get another load of rocks for the mud hole! :-)

  104. My dad is an amazing dad, he's always there when we need him, but he's an even more amazing grandpa! Seeing the joy he takes in every moment with my boys melts my heart!

  105. My dad had to travel for his job, so we didn't get to see him very often. HE had 4 daughters, Yvonne, Sandra, Vicki and me. What was weird was he taught me and my 3 sisters how to count by playing card games. He had 4 daughters and wanted a son so bad, but after 4 girls he decided he was done...and believe me my mom was soooo done. Remember, she has all 4 of us and he is TRAVELING. I AM SURE SHE WOULD SAY "CALGON TAKE ME AWAY" QUITE OFTEN. "GOD BLESS THEM BOTH I MISS THEM"

  106. My favorite funny memory is when my first niece was born. She was just a few weeks old the first time Daddy held her. She lay there quietly looking up at him for a long time, then started crying loudly...Daddy yelled "Somebody come get this thing" in that deep Southern drawl if his. This will be our first Father's Day without...gonna be tough one! :^]

  107. My Dad is awesome and super funny. He's always making us laugh by making up songs or telling funny stories. He's awesome with my kids and it means so much to me that they get to know their Papa and be close to him. My 4 year old daughter told me she's going to be just like her Papa and never grow up. Ha! I love my Dad and I'm so thankful for him.

  108. We were kids and Dad had to make dinner. He made chicken and green mashed potatoes. When my Mom came home, she was horrified and asked him "Why???". His reply? lol "You said the kids had to have something green at every dinner, so I made green mashed potatoes!" He was quite proud of himself :)

  109. My funniest memory of my dad is him trying to convince me to swim in Lake Superior which is freezing. He is in the water and dancing around cause it is so cold but saying it is warm..

  110. Being a driver's ed teacher, my dad started teaching us to drive in elementary school. When we were out in the country (small town), he'd put us in the driver's seat in front of him and let us steer. Also, though frowned upon these days, he let us ride in the back of the truck when we were at the lease where we kept the cows and horses.

  112. My best memory about my dad is not a huge thing. We had dinner together as a family every night, well, every meal was together unless we were at school. One night we were having a ton of fun, laughing so hard we cried, giggling, and telling stories. Dad had just taken a big mouth-full of milk and then ... laughed. The milk sprayed across the entire table, even getting my mom on the other end! I remember laughing so hard that night my stomach hurt and my cheeks hurt, but oh, it felt so good!

  113. I did not have a good relationship with my father till I was much older. Now I make all his cards and he frames them, like works of art.

  115. My dad had 3 girls and no boys. He loved to make things for us. He made stilts, wooden trucks, a ping pong table. He made sure we had lots of fun...even taking 2 of us fishing at a time, which meant he stayed busy taking the fish off the hooks and didn't get to fish for himself. It didn't take him long to teach us to take our own fish off the hook! I had a great dad and mom. If we had filmed a reality series it would have looked a lot like the old TV Series "Father Knows Best".

  116. My Dad could make picking out produce an exciting adventure. One time on a trip from Oregon down to southern California, we passed a home with some big Pomegranate trees in the front yard with the fruit just falling on the ground. My Dad hit the brakes, turned in and went up and asked the people if we could pick their Pomegranates. We left with several bags full.
    Great giveaway. Thanks for the chance to win.

  117. My dad's fun specialty is corny jokes. He will still call if he hears one today.

  118. My dad would always find a way to scare us. He would sit in the dark by the back door and simply say HI when we walked in...and scare the crap out of us!! Don't worry, my sister and I always found a way to get him back!!!

  119. I lost my dad in 1973 to a massive heart attack, but I have many fond memories of him. I was "daddy's girl" and we did everything together. One of my favorite memories of my dad was his story telling--he would gather the neighborhood kids in the front yard and spin the biggest yarns you ever heard! We loved his stories and we would hang on his every word! I can picture him now, sitting in his lounge chair with his best buddy--his dog Sam--sitting beside him swinging in a baby swing!

  120. Wow! What an amazing giveaway!

    My favourite dad memory is from when I was a teen. We had ordered Chinese food and were finishing up with our fortune cookies. My father had gone to put some of the containers in the garbage, and we each (5 kids) took our fortunes and slipped them into his cookie. When my dad came back and saw his cookie, he noticed a bit of paper sticking out so pulled out the fortune and read it. Then he laughed as he noticed a bit more paper and made a big deal about a double fortune. He pulled it out, causing a bit from yet another fortune to stick out. We were all laughing - and so was he as he had not yet realized that we had all put our fortunes in his cookie. He was just SO excited to have so much good fortune! He finally realized what we had done. Even though my dad has been gone for a long time now, we all still fondly remember the Chinese fortune cookie dinner!!

  124. There are so many funny moments that involved my Dad that it is hard to choose from. I do recall that one night when we were eating dinner the phone kept ringing and ringing. Every time we answered it, it was a wrong number. After the fifth or sixth time, my Dad picked up the phone and answered "Rydell Mortuary. You stab em, we slab em." That was the end of the wrong number. It sent my entire family into hysterics.

  125. The best fun I had with my Dad was when we were making wood cut-out Easter bunnies for yard decorations. They were 3-4 feet tall and we made at least a half dozen of them for different people. This was at least a few week project but it was great quality time I got to spend with my Dad!

  126. My Dad is a quiet type, I love him because he loves us (her children) and our mom. Hes a handyman, knows how to repair broken things at home. I like his drawings, his love of crossword puzzles and music.

  127. In my dad's workshop was a sign- "Ye git to soon olt and too late schmart" Somehow that is the first thing I remember when I think of my dad- sitting there as a child and seeing that carved sign.

  128. My dad is a hard-working, old-fashioned "man's man" who never wears shorts or sandals regardless of how hot it gets in the summer. His normal attire is jeans and a pocket T-shirt. His church attire is a "nice" pair of jeans and a shirt with a collar! One of the funniest things I remember as a kid is when he ran from the house in the middle of the night and down the driveway dressed in my mom's housecoat and flip-flops with a baseball bat and yelling at the local teenagers for attempting to smash our mailbox. One look at him and they took off!

  129. The most fun I have with my dad is now shared with my children! It's amazing how young he feels when he gets around his grandchildren. They are the light of his life and it makes my heart melt every time I witness "their fun"!

  134. My Dad was a Chicago Firefighter, I worried about him all the time. He was a great dad! Played games, cards and taught me how to play sports. He was always there for me in my adult life. I sure do miss him!

  135. My funniest Dad moment was when my Father-in-Law was carrying a plate of Oreos and glass of milk to watch TV. As he was sitting in his rocker, he leaned back too far and the rocker fell over backwards spilling the milk and cookies all over him. We still laugh about that memory.

  136. Myhusband decided one day that he would show the girls how to have fun on the slip and slide. He ran at full blast, dove and instead of slipping and sliding, he went thud and laid there. He crawled to the patio, in pain. One trip to the emergency room and 4 broken ribs later, he never tried that and we were forbidden to talk about it. KR

  138. My daddy passed at age 92, and he was funny and endearing right to the end. Everyone remembers him best for his crazy sense of humor and his ability to show up for everyone, just when needed! In his later years, he called all the nurses his little mermaid and made them laugh. He asked everybody if it was their turn to take him to lunch--whether he'd just met them, or not. He fought in WWII AND he was a soldier for Jesus. I miss him!

  139. My dad has been gone for 20 years. I miss him everyday - he was my rock. He showed me what living for God really means giving of yourself for others.
    If i won this awesome bundle my son in law would be the lucky recipient.
    Blessings to all the dads out there trying to make a difference in this crazy world.

  140. My dad played badminton with us often. It's because he played with us that I took a badminton class in college and had some of the most fun I had in school in that class. I also love playing it any time I get the chance (only now I can actually play to win b/c of my college class).

  143. I didn't have my dad around when I was growing up. My MOM was both mom & dad. My grandpa was my dad also. My grandpa taught me how to fish! Everything from getting my pole strung to putting the worm on and also filleting the fish. I remember when my grandpa showed me how to skin & fillet catfish he had caught. He explained everything, to me it was so COOL to watch because I loved science, it was almost like leaning how to disect. Yeah it sounds a little gross but I was the oldest granddaughter and grandpa made sure us girls (granddaughters) knew how to fish and we did pretty much everything that my boy cousins did. From yard work to basic car care. MY GRANDPA IS AND WILL ALWAYS BE MY "DAD"!

  144. My Dad is an awesome gardener. He is always puttering in the garden when he isn't out golfing. He is retired now and I can't think of a more deserving person to be able to relax how he wants after years of hard work!

  145. I can't think of anything funny but he did love to entertain who ever would listen to him playing the button accordion. He couldn't read music but he played by ear and was pretty good.
