My Old Man. Fathers Day.

My dad, Ken, was a good bugger. Never said that much at home because mum was the boss.
But these are some of the good things I learnt from him over the years. Not because he said as much but because thats how he was.
  • Do your very best.
  • Don't complain and make the best of what you have (he had nothing but us kids, all 5 of us, plus his work)
  • Be honest.
  • Work hard, be helpful.
  • Have a laugh when ever you can.
  • Don't be a prick when you are dealing with other people.
This picture is mum and dad from way back.
Dad died 31 years ago aged 63. He would have loved our grandkids and the big family we enjoy now. He came from a massive 'catholic' family with a mongrel as a father. Went to war in North Africa and Italy and came home wounded. He married mum, who was also in the army, not long after he got back from the war.
