My family in 1989
My dad & I have had a very interesting life so far: I always tried my best to get under his skin growing up and he was always the one with a million questions. What I didn't know then is that it's because of my parents asking all the questions they did that kept me (mostly) out of trouble!! It's because of my family, led by my dad that I believe family trumps all..even money. My dad cherishes us & my mom as if we were pure gold..and who wouldn't be lucky to grow up with a dad like that?!?
Over the years, dad & I have grown into a more comfortable relationship. We both share a love of the great outdoors, the countryside, gardening, reading, antiques and even farming. My dad is unlike any man I ever met before..that is until I met my husband ;) you want to see men chat up complete strangers for hours quite easily? Look no further than Adam or dad!! They are in so many ways so similar, and I wouldn't have it any other way!!
So dad, if you are reading this ( and I know you are!) have a very Happy Birthday today - we are so sorry we couldn't make it down. Have a piece of cake for us & oh, tell mom to keep the fire extinguisher out..just in case the candles get too out of control ;) Love you lots!!!
