You have some very lovely word choices here.

I would love and explaination of "Miss-what you can't catch...could be a story of its own.

I loved the flow and the ease of how the DIL gave her "Dad" a day out. Brave to let him drive for sure.
You have a wonderful way with words! I enjoyed this a great deal.

In this sentence: For the first weeks of acquaintance with the family you remained – to him – “Miss-what-you-can’t-catch.”, consider changing the "you" to "I". That would make it personal rather than theoretical, and confirm that "Dad" was indeed your father in-law.

Great title, and wonderful word choices throughout.
I loved the feel to this piece--very comfortable, as we were sitting down together over coffee.
I enjoyed reading your story. What a special memory to always have with you. I agree, it would have been helpful for him to be identified as your father-in-law. Great story, good read. Thanks for sharing!
What more identification is needed than the opening sentences and calling him 'Dad'. Keep it up Thalia,
Congratulations, Fiona, on placing fourteenth in your level with this piece. Great job!
Very good, and it taught me a new word! I'd never encountered "braw" before. Thanks for the enjoyable read.
