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.
*Pats GOF on the head*
It will be alright you poor old thing.
*GOF’s fragile ancient neck fractures and head falls to the floor*
Thank you for your comforting words LOM
I’m sorry, I howled with laughter while reading her post. Happy belated birthday, you poor old dear.
Thank you HG……I am sure she will be pleased that you found her written father-abuse moderately entertaining. 🙂
Happy happy birthday!
You don’t seem in need of sympathy to me! You’ve got a totally cool kid! 😀
Cool kid???? I need lots of sympathy please…….how come I ended up with a satirical kid full of sarcasm and cynicism? (No answer required) Oh woe is me. 🙂
Hahahaha! Sarcasm and cynicism are two very fine qualities!
Indeed Lauri…they are both foundation stones upon which to build a realistic understanding of our world.
Thank you Elaine…….I was planning on keeping it silent until Inga did this to me. 🙂
My father always said me when I was a kid, “I wouldn’t tease you if I didn’t love you!”
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. 🙂
How awesome to have such a witty daughter to so thoroughly roast and humiliate you on your birthday. 🙂
Please don’t pass this on to her kimkiminy lest she get an inflated ego….but yes I do think she is kind of special……..and todays effort gives me justification to exact some retribution when her birthday comes around. 🙂
Now you’re talking! Get writing!
I have written it already, but her birthday coincided with my temporary retirement from blogging a few months ago so it will have to wait until next year. 🙂
Happy Happy Birthday. Your daughter did an excellant job. I hope you will have a wonderful year ahead.
Thank you Freedom…….my new year has certainly started very well with the company of my blog friends here…….and my daughters tribute.
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.
I’d be proud to be roasted so perfectly by my offspring.
Happy Birthday and congrats on such a fine present.
Thanks Pete….and you’re right…what finer gift could a dad receive.
.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……
Happy birthday GOF! Looks like Globlet might have inherited your sense of humour….
Yes Vicola……sadly not everything about genetic inheritance is good.
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) 🙂
You’re a bairn. Happy Solar Return. I might have to have a drink in your honor.
Thanks MT….welcome to the party. Hic…….
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 🙂
Happy birthday… quite an awesome post by your daughter. 🙂
Thank you gundersonbee…..it’s nice that she took the time to write it.
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. 🙂
62? Wow, you don’t look a day over 61!
Well, if it isn’t the Gathering of the Senior Citizens. 😛
*high fives Lauri*
Speak up please Lauri….we’re all a little deaf and slow in here…..what was that you said? 🙂
Time for you to go to confession GOM. 🙂
Goblet’s post was terrific. Happy Birthday – I hope you celebrated well…..
Thank you Emjay….my celebration was modest….I figure that way I might last longer. 😉
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.
