Remembering Our Dads...

A hard man is a good to find - Mae West
Father's Day
Welcome to a lovely Sunday 💓 
We were up early so I could take hubby out for breakfast...
I had the Continental breakfast.
Hubby had the Full English one.
It was nice to have the Nutella chocolate spread for once!
Once finished.
Popped to see my dad with his balloons 🎈
Someone has been buried one up from my parent's grave↓
Wished my dad a happy Father's Day.
Back home.
Hubby had some nice presents of our kids.
What comes with happiness today comes a bit of sadness.
Last year's Father's Day we took out hubby's dad for a meal↓
The last time my dad, hubby's dad got together was 2018↓
As 2019 was Dad was bed-bound.
In 2020, my dad passed away.
Gone but never forgotten 💓💓💓💓
Our local radio station played a request for my hubby for Father's Day.
Even played the song we wanted....↓
We did today's Heardles.

My son's answers↓
Hubby had to sort through some of his late dad's things.
A trip down Memory lane...
It was while performing in Cinderella on 1st January 1986, Dustin Gee had a Heart Attack.
He sadly didn't recover and passed away on the 3rd January 1986 aged 43 :( 
We went back out to see if younger brother had took anything off the grave.
It was still the same from this morning
Rechecked my tyre pressures on Sexy Beast.
Actually now up to date on the blog now \o/
After our lovely steak meal.
I watched a programme about my late dad's favourite singer...
Quick look into the newspaper again.

I must govern the clock,not be governed by it - Golda Meir
Welcome to my Hump of the week🐫
I was hoping for a sprinkle of snow...
Looked out of the window....nothing!
At least the thermal knickers were being put on, as it looked cold out there!
Now to enjoy hugs with tea↓
 Before I left,I gave everyone their sloppy 💋💋
 It's freezing↑
I was glad to wear the thermals!
Today's tree shot↓
 Some drivers totally ignored my Stop sign.
Some realised they had to stop to save their windscreens!
I finished in one piece.
Fills up Sexy Beast, 
And picks up a takaway coffee.
Back home.
  Gets changed,
Has a early lunch↓
  Another CD time in car to sing along with↓

 More singing along↓

The cold blowers went on in the car.
Followed by some great singing along↓
 Back home for a quick coffee and read↓
The afternoon's tree shot↓
 We might be having problems with the low lying sun↓
 One van driver went under my stick, and looked up to see how far my stick was from his van!
One car got impatient and wouldn't wait for someone to cross.
At least I finished in one piece.
Back home↓
Quick drink and off to the Happy Place of Work.
Someone was going to give me the bumps on Friday for my real Birthday on Saturday.
I advised it,as he might get a hernia from trying!
It was still light when I got home \o/
Tea time↓
Now to burn it off with work and singing↓

When I got home,
I needed a early night.
Off to bed with a sleep tea↓
