My dad was the same - mostly. My brothers and I were always out fishing or playing with hammers and power tools in the wood shop. He even taught me to fire his rifle at the gun club. I never got to go hunting, though, since my dad and uncles always did boys-only hunting trips. Conversely, my mom and dad both taught all of us to cook and do laundry. I never thought this was unusual until I went to college and watched perplexed males try to figure out the washers and dryers in the dorm. Or watching my male housemates try to cook a meal. My brother used to laugh that his frat brothers liked when it was his turn to cook because he was the only one who could make something besides spaghetti.
