Oh God, GOF feels old today

Posted on

And is it any wonder when I have a daughter who does things like this to me?

The things up with which I have to put.  Sheesh.

  5. My father always said me when I was a kid, “I wouldn’t tease you if I didn’t love you!”

    Happy birthday!

    • Sounds like you had a wonderful relationship with your father Erin.

      If teasing = love then Inga and I have the most perfect loving dad-daughter relationship. 🙂

  8. Happy 62nd Birthday GOF!

    I suspect said daughter must take after her lovely and long suffering mother!

    Enjoy a glass or two of elderberry wine and know that Mr FD and I wish all the best to you.

    • Thank you for the best wishes from yourself and Mr FD.

      “Said daughter” certainly acquired her mothers good looks, but I suspect there was a certain leakage of sarcasm, cynical wit, and other undesireable attributes from my side (or maybe the environment) during the “raising” process.

  9. I’d be proud to be roasted so perfectly by my offspring.

    Happy Birthday and congrats on such a fine present.

      .Well…perhaps an all expenses paid trip to Rio for Carnivale, a red convertible to cruise along the Esplanade at Cairns or a Cessna Citation personal jet together with a personal oil well, and……

  11. Happy Birthday GOF!!!
    May I suggest trying the chloroform on the feral pig population…would be no need to convince them of your marriageable qualities…

    Isn’t it great to have kids to keep us honest! 🙂

    • Thanks CC……I’ll pop down to the hospital and see if they’ll give me some more chloroform…..I’m running low and Mrs GOF needs another dose next week.

      I think a pig might have died last night from “accidental” poisoning from eating worms laced with insecticide.

      My kid certainly keeps me honest CC (and worried about her psychological stability) 🙂

  12. You’re a bairn. Happy Solar Return. I might have to have a drink in your honor.

  13. hehe… well done Globet… Happy happy birthday GOF…
    – and I just mistyped that “GOD”… which… maybe I should just have left standing as a birfday present… after reading what Inga had to say about your religious beliefffs… go easy on the chloroform and back the trailer over the wild pigs instead of Mrs. GOF

    • Thank you very much Drude……I’m used to the “GOD” thing……Mrs GOF is constantly yelling things like “Oh GOD GOF what have you been doing now…..etc etc” ad nauseum 🙂

  14. Happy birthday… quite an awesome post by your daughter. 🙂

  15. Happy Birthday, my friend. And by the way, you have waay too many home remedies in your cupboard. 😉

    • Thanks Emmi……nice to be sharing it with your company.

      And if you have never tried hydrogen peroxide in the ears……try it you’re missing out on something wonderful and cleansing……but only use the 3% strength stuff. Failing that, when you come to visit I’ll repeat my Inga performance on you…..you’re never to late to learn. 🙂

  18. Lol… a belated happy birthday GOF. I hope your day made you smile as much as I just did… 😉

    We’ll have to chat more… Brad’s Dad worked up in PNG in the seventies (?)… I wonder if you guys ever met? Besides, we’ll be heading up your way soon. Hopefully for good… but even an extended holiday would be nice. We’ll have to catch up and say g’day… with a daughter like yours, you must be alright 😉

    • Thanks for dropping by and your birthday wishes Tina…..yep, Inga keeps me grounded and entertained.

      I’d certainly be happy to meet up with you guys when you are up this way…. and also find out more about Brad’s dad although I didn’t travel widely within PNG……there’s an email address on the “about”‘ page if ever you need to send a message.
