A Father’s Guidance: Featured Question with Forrest

 

spanking2Is there one specific childhood memory that made a significant contribution, that you feel, lead/guided you to the person you are today?  ~Mike

.

Mike, I can’t think of anything, unless it’s that my father was a strict disciplinarian. I received my share of spankings, and although none were painful, they indicated that my actions were unacceptable to my father. That still stings some.

Then when I became a private in the Air Force at age 20 that discipline continued. Peer pressure was strongly against some of my antics so I stopped doing them. The final straw may have been when I filled out a questionnaire. Among the questions were: Height, weight, sex? Unfortunately, my answer to that last question was, “not very often.” Well, I was cited for making a, “facetious remark on an official Air Force document.” They put me on KP for a month and I NEVER made that kind of mistake again.f

    I think that answer on your questionnaire was really funny,…and probably worth the punishment. I am sure your sense of humor got you through all the difficult times,…while in the Air Force in Vietnam.

    I love your sense of humor, forrest! I too was the receiver of spankings and groundings, though not as much as my brothers…but, spankings definitely build character! Ahhh, the good olé days. I wish time didn’t have wings. 🙂

    LOL!! Yes, E* is correct. I’m sure your sense of humor served you well during your time in the AF. And it probably works overtime trying to help you tolerate many of the annoying remarks you see on the Blogs!! 🙂

    Facetious remarks, if allowed to get out of hand, can disrupt the best of plans…(can create sort of a between a rock and hard place situation)!!! 🙂

    Hope your juniper fire is burning bright, tonight!!

    Thanks for it all, Forrest !
