Married to Christine (22 years) and proud father of three children, Alyce,Emily & Nathan. Not as active as I'd like to be, back surgery last year has resulted in my physical life style to be somewhat compromised. I Love having a drink or two with my mates, especially in the Summer months when we take it in turns to hover over the BBQ.

Sweet Sixteen

Happy 16th Birthday to my daughter Emily. (14.o9.1990)

Wow! sixteen years ago since this beautiful girl was delivered by Cesarian section.

It has taken me this long to get her to leave through the front door instead of the side window...... LOL

Emily is a straight A student at school. She just recently received a letter from the school's principal congratulating her on her efforts in all subjects. Further to the letter she was awarded a Certificate Of Excelence.

Dont tell anyone I told you, she now officially has a boyfriend. I haven't met the young boy yet, the big night is this Saturday.

This may come in handy on Saturday Gazza,
a post on the results could be good too.

Pa Annoyer (Paranoia)

Application form to date my daughter

Do you have one Male and one Female parent?
If no, please explain.

Do you own: a van; a truck with oversize tyres; a waterbed?

Do you have an earring, nose ring, belly button ring or any other body piercing? Tattoo? Motorcycle?
If you answered yes to any of the last six questions discontinue application and leave quickly.

In 25 words or less, explain what LATE means.

In 25 words or less, explain what DON”T TOUCH MY DAUGHTER means to you.

In 25 words or less, explain what ABSTINENCE means to you.

When would be the best time to interview your father, mother and minister?

When you first meet a girl the first thing you notice is ---
(If your answer begins with a B, discontinue application, leave quickly and hunker down to reduce the target area)

What do you want to be IF you grow up?

Spooky photo of your lovely daughter's head on the platter! I guess you used something like Photoshop to do that.

Hope she continues to do well at school, even with the distraction of a boyfriend. Well, a girl's gotta have fun too.

Hi Gary ~~ I hope Emily had a great birthday yesterday. Glad se does so well at school. Don't be TOO hard on the boyfriend, although Peter's list is good. Thanks for your comment and yes
both Peter and I like poetry, but I like more inspirational or humorous ones.
Also thanks for the sympathy on the baby
death in our family. Take care, you are doing well. Are you having fun yet ?
cheers, Merle.

Hi Gazza, I've come over from Jen's place to say hello and welcome to blogging, you've made a fine start, except maybe the daughter's head on the platter, shouldn't that have been the new boyfriend's?

Thank goodness Emily looks like her Mum!

Happy Birthday.

I think that BoyFriend application form is a good start Gaz. Maybe you could invite him round to watch a video and put on Meet the Parents, then wheel out an old video machine with a few wires and clamps attached and suggest he takes a simple test before they go out...

Hi Gazza -- Welcome to blogging. I knew Little Jen was starting hers, I must have missed the announcement for you. Looking good.
You have a pretty daughter, she has a pretty horse. Is your daughter one of those Tiger girls?
I can tell your family is spread out. Blogging works good for keeping up with everyone. My family won't blog regularly.

Gimme a break scruff. Some of us have to work for a living.

Cazz, I figured our little sister had made a few phone calls :-)

Jim, Emily is not a fan of the Tigers. She was brainwashed by her mum at an early age to follow The Hawks.
I agree, Blogging is a great way to keep in touch with everybody. Unfortunately I am restricted for time because of work commitments.
