Day By Day


  • epador

    Ya know Javier is going to need separate training.

  • Merle

    just what kind of weapons are we talking about here?

    • Tango

      Massive ones.

  • Too Tall

    “Daughters only obey fathers,” more wisdom from Zed/Chris.

    “Give me a double….” Every father who has raised daughters knows just what Zed means.

    “You can’t scare me, I have two daughters.”

    • Pamela

      How about four daughters.

      • Too Tall

        Automatic sainthood… or is it martyrdom?

        • JavaMan

          Sainthood usually comes after martyrdom.

      • Pamela

        There are four of us. No wonder Dad spent so much time on deployment.

    • Old Codger

      “Daughters only obey fathers,”

      Mine didn’t. Come to think of it neither did her brother – least not very well. 😉

    • GWB

      “You can’t scare me, I have two daughters.”
      Zed’s got one up on that:
      “You can’t scare me, I have twin daughters.”

  • JTC

    What a pain raising daughters. Sons too.

    And I would give anything to go back and do it again.

    • WayneM

      I had one of each. No regrets… although I wish I’d dumped the wife far earlier as her influence was consistently pernicious, to the kids and even more so to me. Life got much easier once her poison was gone.

  • Mike-SMO

    Yep. Sons was bad enough. And we found women to take them. No warranty, however, and no returns allowed.

  • “Weapons” training….Boy, bowdy!

  • Wulfenite

    Daughters – All Drama, All Day

  • Kafiroon

    Raised a daughter.
    I had nerves of steel and an iron disposition. Ruled the homestead with determination. She turned out Great!

    Basically, I ignored the hysterics, emotions and shouting. Threw chocolate when things got too loud and went to moves while it took affect.

  • Bill G

    What weapons, indeed?

  • President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman

    “Double your pleasure,
    Double your fun………”

  • nonncom

    Raised two daughters….one was tough, a good sense of humor, with a head for business and common sense….the other….well, she’s my daughter, too….

  • PCChaos

    Two daughters, hurricanes, Maria Isabel and Camille, and one son, and Lord knows I earned a Ph.D. in diplomacy…and disaster management. Wonderful grandchildren are the reward.

    • cb

      Someone said: If I’d known grandkids were this nice I woulda had them first.

      • gafling

        Another someone also said: If my first child had been like my second, there wouldn’t have been a second!

  • Bradford Long

    Raised by a divorced, never re-married mother with a totally out-of-the-picture father. I had four older sisters and no brothers. It was all training. I got married and had two daughters, no sons. Both graduated early at the top of their classes. Oldest had her Masters in History at twenty-two. They got plenty of love and discipline. Plenty of emotional drama, Other than that they were a breeze to raise.

  • JTC

    What was it Jimmy Soul said in that song?

    “If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life, never make a pretty woman your wife. So my personal point of view, is get an ugly woman to marry you.”

    Yeah I paid about as much attention to that advice as Zed and Javier. My version is “It ain’t always easy with a smokin’ hot wife but you’ll have a smile on your face for the rest of your life.“

  • William Henry

    as a father of 2 daughters i understand, the oldest one blossomed early and was packing her mothers 38C BOOMERS at 14. i chased many a sniz hounds off in my day.

    i was known as the crazy father with all the guns by the guys at the local high school.

    • Too Tall

      You say that like it’s a bad thing….

  • Peregrine John

    I threaten no one. They all know who and what I am.

    That my girl loves her Dad, is sweet and protective, and is handy with sword, cannon, flamethrower, and sundry other toys might have been a clue.

    • Pamela

      Yes. A proper education is always an excellent way to prepare ant child.
      Especially if they know how to fix equipment.

    • JTC

      Sword, cannon, flamethrower and “other”?

      Shit, never mind you, them boys new for sure what she was/is…bet they were polite as hell!

      • Peregrine John

        Oh, yes. But then, politeness is more or less the norm in our circles. As you might imagine.

        Her brother’s the best marksman of the family, but the girl will cheerfully learn to use anything involving blades or fire. And yeah, good with maintenance, rolling charges, safety, etc. Couldn’t be prouder.

  • JavaMan

    Had only one kid … a daughter. Strong headed, but I must have done something right. She turned out way better than I thought she would.

    Looking forward to sugaring up the grandkids and handing them back!

  • Sarthurk

    My daughter was taken from me at three and a half, and deliberately prevented much access for 13 years, until one day, she realized that I wasn’t as bad as her mother let on about, not to mention her mothers continuing adulterous behavior.
    Now we’re Good! She’s good, and I’ll say she’ll never go and act like her mother.

  • Pete231

    Little girls are pretty, but I like Oreos…….

    • John M.

      Sounds kinda like the Engineering Major and the Talking Frog…

  • Bill_M

    The “joys” of having girls…when you remember what you were like when you were younger (and haven’t changed).

  • Steve

    Was it in one of Tom Clancy’s novels, where someone observed that daughters are God’s revenge on a man for the way he thought when he was younger?

    • John M.

      Sounds more like RAH than Clancy, but I don’t remember the quote from either source… there’s a lot of new stuff by Tom Clancy (and his ghost writer) that I haven’t read yet.

  • JTC

    This is freaking awesome, with soundtrack from one of my favorite movies…

    Got Elon’s attention too; can’t believe he let BD go to the SoKo’s but I’m sure he’s got his reasons…or a plan, might be bipedal bots at the ranch real soon, no telling what Javier would do with them.

    • John M.

      Those things dance better than I do!
