    Yep, I was taught that too. And at the age of ten my Dad taught me and my bro all about guns and cleaning and the dangers of them. We are still good shots today, and have a large respect for guns.
    Same with my bunch. Taught them a lot more than most parents seem to these days. Also taught them early to prepare to be independent adults. They all had to plan, shop, and prepare for family meals. How to take care of their business, 'cause I dont have time for mooches.

    Did the same with my three children.. 2 older boys and my daughter. Taught them all how to prepare for the worst, and to be able to feed themselves, and not rely on someone else.

    Funny, my oldest asked one day, 'Dad, can I have my nose pierced?' I smiled and said 'Sure'. She was goggle-eyed and said 'Really?!' I turned to the stove, slipped a chef's knife out of the block, the turned around and asked where she wanted the hole. Her eyes got as big as saucers, as she looked at the knife and the smile on my face, and that was the last time I ever had to answer that question.

    I had 5, ended up with one, and married into 5 more. Their whole early lives had been fubared from terrible parenting. They've all become pretty well-adjusted adults. I told them from the day we decided to become a family that I wasn't there to be their buddy, that all would be treated equally, regardless of biology.

    Something that nearing age 48, I still have very few of. But it is cropping up in my beard and moustache. And not grey, but pure white.

    Oh, I've heard that so many times, now. The oldest step will be 26 this year, and boy, she has come back to me a lot and said I was getting smarter all the time.

    Growing up listening to my old man's music was GREAT (some 2500+ albums mostly Classic Rock from 60s and 70s with some Jazz, Blues, Soul and a Country+Western album mixed in here and there, until of course disco ruined everything he says and I don't disagree and don't even get him started about Rap!). He had/has some very expensive high-end stereo equipment including a Bang & Olufsen turntable that had the floating arm thingie and a Thorens with the common pivoting arm. Heck, he spends $10 for lubricating oil for it and even more for the D4 disk cleaning fluid kit, yet complains about paying more than $5 for a six pack of decent beer. He wears white cotton gloves when handling the records (he calls them vinyls of course), cleans before and after playing, then carefully puts them back into their plastic covered sleeves. He has the needle mirror device with cleaning brush that gets checked frequently and always a spare cartridge and needle ready which cost a small fortune by themselves. Maybe, if I am real good and continue to listen to his endless stories about concerts, each band, album and song, he might, just maybe give it all to me someday.
