A massive HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the fabulous Bill Pearson, my Dad, and one of the greatest men you will ever meet.
According to my Mum tonight, Dad and I grow more alike every day.
I am more than happy to go with that as Dad is one of the most loving and generous people I have ever met and if I am only a little like him I will be happy.
The things my Dad has given me -
a love of MGM musicals
the ability to remember fairly useless music and movie trivia
an interest in Authurian legends
low cholesterol (sorry Mum)
we waddle when we're tired
a love of country music
the desire to keep up with pop culture
the ability to sit over a drink for hours
the tendency to grossly exaggerate to improve a story
a love of people watching
good spacial relations (definately not from Mum)
the ability to tune out others when reading or watching TV
a liking for Vanilla slices
love of surf culture
a love of shopping
and a million more that I'm sure I'll think of as soon as I sign off...
Happy Birthday Dad.
(Surfer Boy wanted me to add another - we are both vulgar and have a dirty sense of humour. - fair enough)
