Diane and Shelby (15)
hope you dont mind me saying so,your daughter is a verry pretty girl.gota chase the boys away with a stick i bet.
yeah, chased a couple of men off so far. When she was 14 a 22 year old didn't seem to want to take being called a "Freak Pervert" as rejection. Then not a month ago one even older followed her home and parked out front so I walked out to clean my AK 74. He hasn't been seen around for a while now, used to cruise the area and pester girls walking in twos and alone.
wow.creepy.yep...gun and shovel for sure!
thing is my daughter had just turned 14 in that picture. She just turned 16 last month, so now I have to be a little bit less DADish when it comes to 18 yearolds. lol
WHY? When my daughter was 17, I scared her BF off with a knife... She was in the bathroom when I came home from the field and found him in the bedroom (still dressed). He didn't talk to her for 3 days while he did a little "soul-searching" then called to break up... worked till she was 19, then met a young man that wasn't intimidated by a 12 gauge ( unfortunately wasn't first time, or first time shot). She ended up marrying him. LOL!
ya.18 is reasonable age differance at least.14 and 18?hell noooooo.20+ and 14?gun and a shovel for sure!my wife and i kinda got shit when i was 18 and she was still 16.im a year and a month older than her,so when i turned 18 she had a month to go before she turned 17.people used to question what i was doing with such a young girl all the time,not knowing we had been together for a while already at that time.
But over all people should keep it to themselves.
2 years isn't squat in the scheme of things when you consider that magic moment someone turns 18 everything in the wold is suddenly legal for them except drinking.
She has good taste and won't have anything to do with any asshole so we don't worry about anyone harming her.
Heh, My older brother and my step brother along with all the boys in blue who look at her as a little sister or daughter of their own would make it a living hell for them.
nice.sounds like you got quite the security force.lol
Your daughter has a that look on her face that only parent of a 14 YO understands. "Dad, do you HAVE to take a picture of me?" lol
They grow out of it.
Good looking family, BTW.
Yeah she was fed up with pictures, she has a really white clear complexion and everyone says she looks like a China Doll, she when cameras come out...
Good thing she got her moms looks.. HA, really...
Nice family con grads sorry for the prev's FLORIDA seems filled with them as the news gose.Teach her to shoot like daddy and kick like MASTER LEE. :>) TY
She shoots very well actually as does her mother for someone who doesn't care for it. Shelby grew up with two older brothers and a 90 lb dog, she isn't afraid and knows how and where to strike.
THey are my two favorite ladies for sure.
like i said,nice family,some of us are really lucky to have who we have beside us,i know i am.
yeah, I know what you mean. same here..
Hell and Back and no not Sig Sauer either..
is "How the hell did you get such a good looking wife with your ugly mug?" Actually I'm just kidding. You do have a good looking family. I FULLY understand the gun and shovel. Have two daughters of my own. Can deal with a lot of things, but the protection of my girls is not negotiable. You don't have to stop being "DADish" just let the boys know that you remember what it's like when you're 18. Also let them know that you will be around when they bring her home.
thanky, yeah, at some point in time I invite them to the range which generally means they have to go through a 20 man screening and if they make it through that they turn out ok. LOL
She still turns red in the face at times when I ask them if they have any Sisters or Female Cousins and to remember how they feel about guys being around them.
There is another answer too. Since most of us don't work at a shooting range, Rodney Adkins recorded a song, that I remember actually happened to me. Don't know if you are a fan of his or not, but he has a song called "Cleaning This Gun" that basically describes something that happened to me at 16. If you are not familiar with it, try to find a country station that will play it for you sometime.
I hear you on the 20 man screening. I know a couple of kids who have something similar, not 20 but two or three who make it obvious that they will come knocking if anything happens and they will most likely be packing guns. As for her turning red, when you ask those questions, I fully understand that too. My mother told me the same thing before I ever went on a date. For some reason moms and dads don't tell their sons that so much anymore or they won't listen. So it's up to us dads to get the point across to them. Fortunately, when you put their plans into perspective by pointing out that it can happen to their own family members, then for some reason their attitude does seem to change somewhat.
How you been? Good to see you're getting a chance to post here once in a while. You liking the piney woods? (Kind of a rhetorical question, I KNOW you are, lol)
I too have 16 yr old daughter and it is scary shit. But honestly I think she would do better with someone a couple of years older than her. We have had a couple of boys her age around and they are very immature. She has an interest in the boy down the street that is 18 I believe, but heading off to the marines. Must have a thing for Marines cause her last bf was signing up when he graduates next year. She has a level head on her shoulders and has given me very little grief so far.
At least that's what I always get. My baby turned 18 on the 2nd of June. Now we are talking politics. Yep, I'm boring her to death. It's kinda funny though, all the boys are scared of me. Her current boyfriend argued with her about whether she really shot the target in her trunk.
I set him straight, she did indeed. Nice young man, not much for arguing anymore. LOL!
and 2 more people we don't have to worry about whether they are taken good care. Bravo.
I don't have kids and never will, but I've always made it a point to include "the murder plastic" in my list (along with lye, shovel, shotgun, etc)....that specific, unpoetic addition always made ne'erdowells pause a little longer when considering their reply.
And don't feel bad ISD.....damn near everyone, down to my supervisors here at work and my family doctor have asked me how drunk I had to get TBH to get her to say 'yes'. Some people are just lucky....something about a 'gift horse'?
