Good morning Merlin my ever so sweet and wonderful gentle giant. I hope that you are having lots and lots of fun jumping, chasing and playing with your buddies.

MERLIN MERLIN MERLIN, YOU HAVE DONE IT AGAIN, YOUR DIARY HAS BEEN CHOSEN AS “ONE OF TODAY'S PICKS,” I AM SO PROUD OF YOU MY BOY!!!.

Its another very hot day again there is at least some sort of breeze, also I felt rain was in the air, a sort of misty rain. Hopefully it will rain and cool everything off. Last night wasn't as hot as the previous night, but it was still hot and kept waking me up. I must have woken up at least three or four times, most annoying.

Do you remember how Lady Zara from next door would come and greet us when we came home from work? She would squeeze through the fence and come running up, her tail wagging and she was definitely smiling, she was so happy to see us all. When she had her babies, I approached her and her babies very carefully, she saw it was me and came running up wagging her tail, she wanted me to see her babies. I saw them and she even allowed me to pick them up one by one, she was very proud of her babies. If Bella went near them Lady Zara would growl, but she allowed you to see them, well you were their Daddy after all said and done. She was such a sweet girl Merlin, it was so sad when she crossed the bridge so young. I have no idea why she died, she was just over a year old. Perhaps a snake bit her. I still think of her often. Such a sweet little girl.

Well I guess its time for you to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

Never forget Merlin, I love you and miss you so much.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my ever so sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Yesterday and last night were extremely hot, the heat kept waking me up, it was really nasty, the dogs were panting all night long. I really felt sorry for them. This morning is no better, when I woke up the bed clothes and my pillows were soaking wet with sweat and as soon as I got out of the shower I began to sweat again. This has got to be the hottest few days yet and I don't think its going to cool down any time soon. I'll have to check the weather forecast in a minute. This is simply too hot.

This heat is affecting little Mia as well, she is so uncomfortable we had to soak her down with cold water and put a fan near her to cool her off. I'll be glad when this summer is over, its too much.

Melissa my daughters little sandwich shop seems to be getting more and more custom, one of her regulars have given her an order for six lunches everyday, apart from that she is getting more and more custom as her name is getting out there, good quality food at reasonable prices. She is even talking about hiring someone to be her runner, taking phone orders to her customers. I only hope it keeps going like that for her, she deserves to succeed.

Well I guess its time for you to go play with your buddies and have some more fun.

I do love and miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin, my wonderfully sweet gentle giant.

Its an extremely hot day today, yesterday and today are the hottest days so far this summer, its very uncomfortable, the dogs are very subdued, this is the sort of day that could hit them with heat exhaustion very easily. Its nasty my boy.

I checked the weather in UK where Mike my son is living, its rain, rain and more rain, very cold and high winds, well I did warn him. I remember my first winter in UK after my tour in the Far East, I've never felt so cold in my entire life, men were walking around in shirt sleeves while I had my overcoat on. In fact I was never really warm after that, the cold weather nearly had me on my knee's, so I wonder how Mike is coping with the cold. I hope his home has got good central heating, because he's going to need it!

I'm still not use to this keyboard, I keep hitting the wrong keys with my fat fingers. Most annoying.

Mia was using finger paint, she covered her face with it as well as painting your mums nose green! I did laugh. I didn't laugh when her mum told her to paint me!!! Granddad doesn't like getting covered in paint, finger paint or otherwise.

Well I guess its time for you to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

I do love you and miss you so much Merlin, never forget that.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant. I hope that you are having lots of fun with your buddies running and jumping and playing, eating wonderful food and drinking sweet crystal clear water. You deserve it all and more besides my boy.

Its another hot and humid day, but today there is a very fresh (strong) breeze, it might make a good run and play day for you my boy as long as you drank lots and lots of water and be careful about overheating.

I thought I had decided on the new car I want to buy, but another make and model has come to mind it is also a nice premium car. I'll just have to wait until nearer the time to make my mind up. I never know I might even consider buying a 4 wheel drive again if the prices are right. I hate buying new cars and comparing the different types and models, it gives me a headache. Lets wait and see.

I'm drinking a nice cup of green tea with lemon, it even tastes quite nice when its cold, its very refreshing. I do however, prefer normal tea first thing in the morning.

Bella has been up to her old tricks again fighting with the dogs next door, this time her lip is split. That dog just don't listen or learn. I really don't know why they hate each other so much.

I guess its time for you to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

I love you and miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant. I hope that you are having lots and lots of fun with your buddies.

Its another hot and humid day with a very soft breeze that's just about rustling the leaves in the trees. Not a good run and play day for you my boy, its just too hot.

For the past few days when Mia leaves for play school she waves goodbye and gives me high fives and low fives, I suppose that's her new “thing” now. It does amuse me.

I've had even more work pension paperwork to do, its a nightmare, but I guess it will be worth it in the end when I finally get my pension payments paid into my bank account.

Mia's dad is playing up again, he tries to manipulate your mum sending her text messages, but she's sees through him in a heartbeat. I didn't like him right from the first time I met him, why on earth my daughter hooked up with him I don't know, but now she realises her mistake. I feel like saying “I told you so,” but I wont rub salt into the wound, I'm just glad that she did realise her mistake.

I guess its time for you to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

I love and miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my precious boy.

Its another hot, humid and windless day, not even the leaves are moving the slightest in the tree's, again Molly and Spud aren't doing their usual beating each other up, Bella is in the house and Hobo? I have no idea where he is. He refuses to come indoors at night, he prefers to stay outside all night. My son Mike had a fan in his room, so last night I took it and put it in my bedroom and put it on slow speed, it was just enough to blow a cool breeze around the room, I had a good nights sleep, I only woke up once which makes a change when its as hot as this.

Mia was in a very good mood this morning laughing and playing, when she went to play school she gave me quite a few high fives and low fives. That child really amuses me, well except for last night, boy did she play up, she was throwing a temper tantrum, in the end I had to raise my voice at her to stop her nonsense. Finally she fell asleep and slept through until this morning. After she fell asleep your mum and I went through my work pension application which took absolute ages, but finally we got it done so it can be posted off to UK today. It might not be much money in the UK, but here its quite good, its more then most people earn working, so I am quite happy with it I can do quite a lot with it.

Well my boy, I suppose its time for you to go play with your buddies.

I do love you so much my boy, please never forget that.

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my very special and sweet gentle giant.

Its another hot day again, no cloud, no wind and quite humid and hot. When I let the dogs out Bella went outside and came straight back inside again, Molly and Spud are doing their own thing as usual. Not a good run and play day for you my boy.

Although I officially retire this month I wont receive my pensions until next month as I am paid in arrears, not that I am complaining, I've waited 50 years to get my pensions so another month wont hurt.

After I get my new car I want to take it to the ADDO elephant reserve near Port Elizabeth, its been 10 years since I was there last, I have heard that its changed quite a lot, its a lot bigger then it was. Its plus or minus 800 kilometres (500 miles) away, so it would be a good test for my new car to see how comfortable it is and how it performs. ADDO is one of my all time favourite places in South Africa, I am really looking forward to going. Last time I was there I was camping and I got rained out, this time I am going to book a chalet with proper beds, toilet, shower and a small kitchen. There is a brilliant restaurant, so if I don't want to cook I can book a table and have a nice juicy steak. Yumm.

Anyway my boy I guess its time for you to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

I love you so much Merlin, please my boy, never forget that.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant. I hope that you are having a great time my boy with your buddies, running and jumping and playing. You deserve it my boy.

Today is another hot day, no wind and humid, the same as yesterday. I tried to sit outside yesterday, I sat there for about ten minutes and had to come indoors, it was just too uncomfortable. Bella is indoors, laying some where nice and cool, Molly, Spud and Hobo are outside some where, Hobo is again probably laying in the shade of a tree, as for Molly and Spud they are always mooching about some where on the property.

Mia was in a really lovely mood this morning, when your mum was taking her to play school Mia waved goodbye and came and gave me a high 5, in fact she kept coming up to me about ten times to give me a high 5 and then waving to me. That little girl is so sweet when she wants to be. Her dad is being a pain in the neck, if he keeps this up I'm really going to tell him where to get off. I've been very patient with him so far, but my patience is wearing very thin. Why on earth Melissa got hooked with him in the first place I'll never know. If I had known how unhappy she was with the man I would have brought her home earlier.

It appears Mike my son is doing very well for himself in UK, hopefully he will get the job as a postman/driver with the Royal Mail. Its a good well paying job, with lots of benefits and sick pay. I really hope he gets it. His friends mum feeds him during the week and she loves his company in the evening, everyone who has met him have said he is a really nice chap. I know he is, he has respect for people and extremely polite. I think his mum and I did a good job raising him.

Well my boy I suppose its time that you went and had some more fun with your buddies.

I love you Merlin, I hope you realise that.

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my extra special and gentle giant.

Its another hot day today my boy, no cloud, no wind, quite hot and humid., Molly, Spud, Bella and Hobo went outside for a little while and then came indoors. So I would assume it wouldn't make a good run and play day for you.

Mia banged her head this morning, poor little mite has got a lump the size of an egg on her head, she did cry. Her mum took her out for a little drive, they have just come home but she's still not very happy. Her dad is being a bit of a nasty piece of work, he and Mia's mum are no longer together and he's not very happy that she goes out to see her friends while your mum and I baby sit for her. If this keeps up I am going to have to tell him that he's no longer welcome in our home. I never did like him from the first time I met him, I just didn't trust him. Now Melissa has got her life back he doesn't like it. he's now showing his true colours According to Afrikaners, their women are their property. Boy has he got the wrong family, he obviously don't know Londoners. Me and your mum wont hold back, well we tell him exactly where to get off and where to go.

I am really looking forward to getting my new car, I can take little Mia out for a ride on Sundays if the weather is nice and take her for little treats. I want her to remember me as I remember my Granddad. My Granddad would have loved you Merlin, he loved all kinds of dogs and horses. He was a great man, I miss him very much.

Well I suppose its time for you to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

I love you and miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my handsome gentle giant.

Today is pretty much like yesterday, some cloud but very hot and no wind. Last night was a little cooler, I managed to get a fair nights sleep but I went to sleep very late. I was going to go back to sleep but I had to let the pack out. I must admit I do feel a bit tired, I'll probably have a nap later on in my chair. I think today might be too hot for you to run and play, even Molly and Spud are not tearing around like lunatics.

Do you remember when I came home from work on Saturday afternoon I use to take a nap? When you thought I had enough sleep you would come and jump on me to wake me up, every time I though the house was falling in on me, your 100 pound weight landing on my stomach knocked the wind out of me. I kept telling you not to do it, but it fell on deaf ears, when you wanted me awake you woke me up. How long for those days again. We were a team Merlin, you and I, we have a bond even now you are no longer beside me, a bond that will last for eternity. My best friend ever and always will be.

Mia is with her dad on Saturdays while Melissa and your mum are at work, he comes to the house on Friday evening and leaves on Sunday, so he and Mia can see each other. I don't like him, I never have, but we can't keep him away from his daughter.

Well I guess its time for you to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

I love you so much Merlin and I always will.

Your ever loving Daddy.
