Happy Birthday Dad

My lovely Dad is 75 years old today. He is my hero, a quiet, rather pessimistic one, but a hero all the same. He has given me so much valuable advice in my life but the two bits that have really stuck with me are: 1) "You can eat an elephant if you do it one bite at a time" 2) "Don't expect anything, that way you will not be disappointed but may at times be pleasantly surprised"

I am not sure what I would have done without my loving family lately. They are all so kind and they know me so well. Huge appreciation folks!


  1. Thank you, precious, for your kind sentiments. I am so happy that you are at last here. I hope you and your family have a good life in Australia. Love, Dad
