The Influence of Fatherhood: Oh My Papa

Today is a special day for commemorating our fathers, dads, papas, and other father-figure and paternal influencers. I thought about this song that Jim Nabors sang during an episode in the long-running sitcom Gomer Pyle USMC, that he performed during an amateur nightclub contest. While this was humorous is certain parts, I have to say that Jim Nabors had an incredible voice and this song “Oh My Papa” is sweet and endearing.

Wishing all fathers, grandfathers, great-great grandfathers, brothers, uncles, cousins, and even those mothers playing the role as a double-duty parent, a wonderful and very special day. For those of you like me, whose fathers are no longer here, whatever memories you hold, just think about the impact you can make to enhance the lives of others around you, especially our younger generations.

  1. Thanks so much Dwight. I loved Jim Nabors’ voice. I couldn’t believe it was really him when I watched that show because he acted so goofy. Don’t ask how or why I remembered that episode. I’m just glad I did. I love to reminise. 😊✍🏼😁
