How was your relationship with your dad growing up? How long does he want to stay when he visits??? Is he a pain in the ass at your house? And what does he do in town if you're not around? If he has friends there...that's fine.

Maybe he's just lonely and wants to be with his son or daughter (your profile doesn't state which)?
