Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.
Its another hot day, no clouds in the sky and very little wind, its going to be another hot and sweaty day, not a good run and play day as you could end up with heat exhaustion.
Mike my son has landed in UK, he sent me an email yesterday saying it was a good but long flight, he was exhausted so it was only a short email, but I am glad that he landed OK. I bet he's fast asleep now, its 9:30 here in South Africa, so its 7:30 in UK so he should be snoring his head off. It takes a couple of days to get over a long flight so I doubt if he will be doing much today, maybe going to meet his friends mum and step dad, or perhaps going for a pint in his local pub. Your mum hasn't stopped crying since Mike left, I'm close to tears myself but I am managing to hold it back. The thing is Merlin, Mike had to go, if we had held him back he would end up resenting us. My mum and dad stopped me joing the RAF straight from school at 15 and I resented them, as soon as I was old enough to join without their permission I joined up. I resented my mum and dad for not letting me go in the first place, I resented my dad until the day he died and I haven't seen my mother for almost 30 years, so I don't know (or care) if she is alive or dead. Its an awful thing to resent your parents, and I didn't want that to happen with my son.
Well I guess its time for you to go play and have some fun with your buddies.
I love and miss you so much my boy.
Your ever loving Daddy.
