Fantastic Father Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Fantastic Father Giveaway Hop, hosted by The Review Wire and Chatty Patty’s Place!

Today’s hop celebrates dads everywhere, and is scheduled to end just before Father’s Day is celebrated in the U.S. So just in time for the winners to either give their prizes to dad or use the gift cards they win to get a gift for dad. (Or to keep for yourownself if you are the dad!)

And for those of us who have lost their dads, a time to remember them – not that we don’t on plenty of other days.

But this hop is for all those great dads out there, whether their children are human or feline or canine or feathered or scaled or any or all of the above!

The question in the rafflecopter is “If money (and reality) were ignored, what gift would you most want to give your dad?” I think I’d give mine flying lessons. My dad joined the U.S. Army Air Corps just after WW2 because he wanted to learn to fly. He was honorably discharged after six months because he could fly just fine, but he couldn’t land the plane on visual. Dad had no depth perception, so he just couldn’t find the ground reliably – at least not until gravity slammed the plane, and himself, and the poor instructor, into the ground. When my dad passed away, my mother discovered that he had been taking flying lessons – again – and just hadn’t told her. I can’t say that I was surprised about either part of that, that he was trying again, or that he hadn’t mentioned it.

  1. I would want to give my dad a trip to Norway, Finland and Iceland. I know he’d like to see where his family came from and also the aurora borealis.

  2. I wish that I could have done much more for my dad when he was alive. A fishing cabin by a beautiful lake.

  3. My father’s been gone for 20 years now. He was a military pilot, so no flying lessons for him! But he loved to cook and listen to opera (especially Carmen), so maybe cooking classes or tickets to a memorable performance somewhere in the world.

  4. My Dad is no longer with me, but I would have bought him a nice big Sailboat!

  5. When he was alive…I would have bought him a nice big house with a big ole’ fishing pond in the back.

  7. I would definitely give my dad the gift of a new home on the lake along with his own boat!

  19. I’d like to get my dad his dream car(s). He’s a mechanic and he’s worked on cars his entire life (seriously) but has never actually sat in one of the cars he’d LOVE to own. That is what I would do.

  28. Interesting question.
    I think most would be more time and closure with his mom, maybe save her too.

    Never got over it.
    Of course I never meet.
    Haunted him all his life and his relationships.

  30. My mom always loved the beach, and my dad misses her.. I think he would be able to feel her spirit in her favorite place.

  31. If he came down from Heaven, new hips and joints so he could walk again…sigh…but he is perfect, and pain free, now in Heaven with my mom, so I wouldn’t wish him back on earth. Thanks and God Bless!

  32. I’d give my grandpa the opportunity to go back into time! I think he misses the good ole’ days.

  33. Id love to give him enough money that he could retire and move wherever he wanted and live comfortably

  34. Maybe I think that he’d really enjoy some camping gear he wanted and a trip a national park. My dad loved the outdoors before he passed.

  35. I would love to send my dad on a vacation to Australia! For as long as I can remember he has wanted to go!
