You Teach Your Daughters



This is my Dad.

He is awesome.











Not only is he world renowned in his field but he also co-wrote this book.
















He built this pergola.

















He recently won this trophy!
(Novice Bowls Champ)



















He may be assisting the passage of
these people to Australia in January.





















And tonight he sent us THIS!













For those of you who missed it, we were avid followers of 'Battle of the Choirs' this year in Australia. Dad's DVD (recorded no doubt off his new fancy schmancy DVD recorder) shows us the last two episodes of the UK version of the same, 'Last Choir Standing'.

Well, we loved it.

The Baby Angel and I sat and watched it tonight (probably both had other things to do but hey...) and did the whole smiling, clapping, crying thing! Thank you, thank you, thank you Dad. You sure know what we like!!!!!!!

By the way. Who were your pick Mum and Dad? I think, once again, that song choice played a huge part. I mean how can you compare 'Ain't No Stoppin Us Now' to Carmina Burana??????
I also thought it was appropriate that there were two Welsh choirs in the final. Prove me wrong people, but I don't think there's a country in the world that can go past Wales for choral singing!

Thanks so much beloved and dearly missed Dad. You gave us such a lovely night together. With all the London/Wales shots the BA looked over and said "This is making me miss England Mum!"

I know just what you mean BA.

One thing I did notice was the quality of the advertised programs before and afterwards!!!
BOY I miss UK TV!!!!!!!!!!!

Looking forward to meeting your dad, but this whole choir thing - not getting it.

Inexplicably, I miss a lot of things about the UK as well.

Wow - what a great dad he is!

I hope that everyone is there with you in January -- you deserve that treat!
