As I get older — yes, I'm officially old; I admit it — I become more aware of how much I've forgotten. Some of it may be lost forever at this point; gone from my mind and never that important to anyone else in the first place. Some of it though may still be lurking deep in my brain waiting for the right trigger to pull it to the surface.
So, I'm going to try a thing. Maybe it will work, maybe it won't. That's the whole point of this blog though, to just be or do what ever and see what happens. Basically I'm going to post random memories and I'm going to tag them with as many relevant tags as I can to see what cross-references.
Will this be interesting to anyone but me? Probably not. That's fine, I'm the one paying for the hosting.
Any #dad related accounts I should follow? Is there much in the way of parenting stuff here in the fediverse?
My daughter turned 18 recently. Among many other things it was very emotional when I gave her a 7 page letter of sorts, I had written 18 years ago.
That day, when I left the delivery room, I drove home, sat down at my desk and wrote about everything what happened that day and everything I felt.
I was a little bit anxious, while she was reading and then we cried together.
Win for the dad drawer!
The rubber bung came out of the end of the fish tank water pump diffuser. It had shrunk over the years so it wouldn't stay put when the water flow started. In my draw of bits and bobs, alongside all the screws, nuts bolts and many IKEA Allen keys, I happened to have a set of different sized rubber tap washers, and one of them fitted over the bung flanges. Now it stays in!
Sorry for the disappointed who clicked on the CW.
I want to share something with you.
My therapist once told me, in regards to my relationship with my father:
“Like it or not, you have a relationship with your father. Everybody has a relationship with A father, even if they don’t have or ever had a father. Having a father is part of everyone’s psyche, therefore you have a relationship with a or your father. The only thing you need to do is define this relationship the best way it works for you. It doesn’t have to be ideal, it just needs to not jeopardize your life.”
Dear #Conservative Activist #Dad Who Is Very Concerned That His Kids Might Check Out A Children's #Library #Book He Considers #Inappropriate ... well, don't let your kids go to the library, or only let them go with you in attendance. That's your right as a #parent.
Oh, wait, you're afraid that *other* parents' kids might check out a book that *you* consider inappropriate? Go pound sand.
My #Dad and I have successfully turned my 11 year old nephew into a fan of #vietnamese #food, made some Bò Lúc Lắc today and he ate some. He's normally a picky eater but has been getting more adventurous, and today was a hit with him. He's already asking "When can we eat some more of that stuff?"
Gosh I love kiddos :)
Where y'all at? Shine the signal. Heroes to the rescue. This is what you've been training for

Heya! #introduction ! =)
Sleep deprived #dad of two small humans and trying to do the best possible job of it.
I know I'm privileged in many ways and I try to be a decent ally.
I am thinking a lot about how to do something for the #climate emergency, but so far I'm just trying to learn to talk to people effectively.
Words no #Dad ever wants to hear on the phone about their kid from a Doctor, “We need you to bring them back to the Hospital ER, as soon as you can.”
(wife is enroute while I stay home & continue to recover)
Good news here in the Starkey family, is - my son officially became a Mr. Starkey in the eyes of the State of Indiana.
He met with the judge, she approved the legal change to his name and gender! So, good things can happen to trans-folks and their families, if we're willing to work for it.
My wife and I paid for the court fees as our birthday gift to the kid.
just contacted the #Microsoft #disability Answer Desk via #BeMyEyes to ask for help in formatting my PDF document. They remote in to my computer using quick assist and boom, all is fixed. they are always very helpful on these kind of situations.
and did you know that all representatives/agents on the disability answer desk are all #Filipinos? something to be proud of! our fello #Kababayans are doing a big difference! If you are by any chance in #Fediverse and may have read this toot, I would like to say thank you very much for all the work you're all doing! #Mabuhay kayo!
🥥 If a #Dad laughs at his own joke in a forest, will any of his daughters hear it? 🥥
A thread 🧵
I miss you Pops!
It's hard to believe that it's been two years today since I lost you. You were my best friend, my rock, my shoulder to cry on, my laughing buddy, my news talking buddy, my world, my everything. But most of all, you were my father, or as I called you for most of my life, my Pops!
I’ve been here a little while, but never posted a proper #introduction.
#Dad to two lovely energiser bunnies. Involuntary expert in Paw Patrol, Thomas the Tank Engine etc.
Big #Munster #Rugby fan #SUAF. #HomeAutomation with #HomeAssistant and #Homekit. #Mobile & #Gadgets. #Apple. #appleshortcuts #3DPrinting. #RenewableEnergy and #Sustainability in IT. #Running. Pretty sound IMHO 😁
How a camera connected a son to his father battling Alzheimer’s, over 16 years and thousands of photographs taken:
My #dad’s turning 81 two days after #FathersDay and I never know what to #gift him—he’s one of those guys that just goes out and buys whatever he wants. I think these two #HarryAndDavid gift boxes will be okay, though.
Here’s a link that will get you a $30 #bonus if you spend $30 that qualifies for #Rakuten #cash back within 90 days of signing up. Better hop to it if you have or know a #father—it’s only.a week away!

Things that are important to me that might be important to you:
I am #queer, #neurodivergent, and, frankly, a #weirdo. Also a #dad, a retired #journalist, #tech industry veteran. I don't drink #alcohol (don't mind if you do, I just am finished with it) but I love #weed. I like to #read but have a hard time finding the time these days. I love to promote #art, #music and other kinds of #creative expression.
Well that BACKFIRED BIGTIME ON YA didnt it??!. Not a good plan! Your BEST Thinking has put you and your so-called friend in #DIRE_STRAIGHTS.
One Question while your friends died..
"Was it Worth it??"
If I had a mother or a Father this is what they may have said. You can learn the easy way or the hard way. Looks like YOU choose the #HARD_WAY!
Not a Good Plan!

Greets! Seems #Introduction is a thing over here, so prob'ly time for one.
I am a 50+ happily-married #Dad of one awesome kid. A #leftist currently based in not-so-#progressive #Nebraska. Currently I'm obsessed with #transportation #infrastructure, trends in #education, and #religion and its adherents' attempts to cleanse the public square of any but their beliefs.
But my touch of #ADHD could change that list tomorrow!
Time to write a new #introduction post I guess
I'm caranatar, I'm #nonbinary I work in #tech #progarmming. I moved to the #bayarea from #florida a year and a half ago or so. I'm an #anarchist and #discordian. I'm a #dad to some wonderful kids. I'm into #photogaphy but most of my pictures are of my kids now so they don't get posted. Mostly I just post whatever stupid shit crosses my mind
I’m seeing all of the great #introduction posts in the local content.town timeline, so I thought I’d do one of my own.
I’m a #dad, #affordableHousing consultant, #photographer, #businessOwner, and #Anaheim planning commissioner. I write about urban planning issues (https://www.granthenninger.com/urban-planning) and have another Mastodon account just for the subject ( @GrantHenninger).
Once upon a time, I took pictures of pretty landscapes. I don’t do that much anymore, but I want to do it again.
My daughter used the word 'gurdy' earlier (she's obsessed with rhyming words at the minute and I think I'd said 'nerdy') and so I told her that there is a musical instrument called a hurdy-gurdy. She asked me how it worked and I drew a blank. To the internet to find an answer!
Long story short, my daughter spent most of her lunch time spooling through Instagram Reels of European hurdy-gurdy players. She's 4.
I left my #introduction on my previous instance, so let's do an update.
Hello! I’m Liam! I’m 30, a proud father, and currrently studying Computers/Networking.
I hope everyone is doing well today :meowsip:

#introduction on a new server.
I’m an average #dad of 3 kids, been around the sun 42 times.
I dig wannabe internet comedians, will boost a bunch of shit that makes me laugh.
Suffering from a pretty substantial 'eh what's the point' right now. I always knew having a second child would knock us back a bit, but I wasn't expecting him to literally be the *devil incarnate.
He doesn't sleep. He can't self soothe. He's so damn challenging and truly, I don't think we're upto that challenge.
* He's not, he's just significantly more challenging than our first was. We love him, but holy f**k kid.
