What's in the Dad bag!
What to get dad this year
That would depend on the type you have!
Since I was little, my dad as far as I remember always went fishing or hunting. Oh yeah and if he had to put one of my toys together he'd do that. My mother actually told me one year (I forget which, but I didn't get anything that hewould have to help me with put together or anything like that.) She told me that he was like "There's nothing to put together" like he was al upset about it! I thought that was pretty cool. (Maybe that's what I can ask for chrsitmas something dad can put together lol)
Anyway so on with the lens.
There's all types of dads, Mine is the Wild game dad or just gaming dad as, as I was saying if he had to put something together he would end up playing with it himself until i went to mom & cried he wouldn't give me my toy! (Is that hilarious that I had to cry abotu my own dad not giving my toy back? mind you I do not have siblings so if there's fights about a game or toy its dad & I!! )
There's the sporty or fitness dad Gadget dad Business dad aka ' The Suit' and just the plain Sports dad couch potato. I will most definately cover the fishing & Hunting and 'gaming' dad aside from that I will try to help with the others.
The Huntsman minus snow white
I always absolutely HATED my dad would go hunt 'Bambi'
The closest I get to being Vegetarian or vegan is there's ONLY 3 types of meat I will eat. That's the basic, Pork, Chicken & beef. Even if I was starving to death, I don't think I could kill a forest creature. Though for those that do hunt & not just for game, as long as they eat the meat, I'm fine (but I still don't like it) Also like the natives, I think if they were to use every part of the deer for blankets, and so on, Then that would be fine. I can understand it was done for years before we got so jaded, and it was a necessity, and some would make the same argument with the farm animals but to me those farm animals aren't as cute & pretty & awe inspiring as Deer, or seeing a bunny in the wild and so on.
One time I was looking through pictures and noticed ALL of my birthday pictures had dad missing in them. I asked mom where he is, Doh! well my November birthday I had forgotten falls during hunting season, so he was up at my pop-pop's hunting on my birthday.
Playing Video Games with Sully Cat
My dad likes video games but since we got the HD tv we haven't played (well he hasn't played any as he needs another wire to hook up playstation) i on the otherhand still have Sega Saturn and play Battle Monsters when I'm in the mood. I just hook it up to my old analog tv! (screw digital!) Now that I have a new TV I don't think I've played any on there.
Usually just what's on my kindle
Fisher-man - but if I'm with ya, forget live bait! Unless you want to bait my line!
I remember when I was little I would go fishing with my dad. Another thing I remember, is that I had this little snoopy fishing pole.
I never really liked fishing I thought (& still do think) it boring but if I have a book I'd wouldn't!
My fishing days came to an end when I was either in grade 5 or 6. The school I went to was the Hudson River Museum school, so it was as if we had a bunch of field trips in one year. That was the ONLY time I remember liking school. Well for one of my classes we had a field trip to the river itself to fish. No one told me what kind of worms we were using or what they could do, unless they didn't know!!! They had ::curses:: sandwroms for bait. When I picked one up to bait my hook (Yes I would bait my own hooks) I had no idea what hit me! The cursed thing bit me. No matter how hard I shook my hand to get it off it wouldn't fly off, and it HURT!! To think that little thing and those tiny pincers could hurt that much, not to mention actually left a bite mark for a few years, could do that! One of the boys had to come and calm me down (I'm here laughing at myself over this) That was it, I told him he could use my pole & fish.
After that not sure how long we had the pole for, but eventually it found its way to some family members int he south.
A kindle would also be a great gift for any dad

Product review on the Kindle Fire 5th Generation from Amazon
What abot your dad?
What kind of dad do YOU have?
Gear Head - for the 'grease monkey'
Here's an idea Robin gave me. So Thank you .
for 'model dad's' a model car, a few matchbox or hotwheels cars of his favorite (or the cards he's had through his life.. Bonus if they are the same color~!
The major use item
These headlamps are a great utility tool!
Keep one in the car in case you break down at night so you can try to fix it (if you know what you are doing in there)
Use it to read at night so not to disturb anyone else
heck use it on vacation to go to the bathroom, so as to not bump into anything. These have a variety of different uses I don't think I even thought of yet.
another idea... it's also great for those who do crafts (like me), art, or maybe to add a little lighting to that photo you are taking!
