My sweet and gentle giant

Good morning Merlin my sweet and gentle giant, I hope that you are having lots and lots of fun and games with your buddies, you deserve to have all the fun all the time my boy.

Its another beautiful day my boy, there I some cloud but it still nice and bright and warm with no wind, not even a gentle breeze to ruffle the leaves in the tree's. I think though its going to get very very hot later so I am going to have to watch that the dogs don't get over heated and watch out for snakes.

Mia was in such a good mood this morning, she was smiling and laughing and she had that cheeky smile and look on her face. Her mum was in the kitchen when Mia woke up, Mia ran straight past her mum and ran into you mum and I, she really loves her Nana and I hope me, her Granddad. She really is a delight Merlin, and I know for a fact that you would love her as much as we do and I know that you would protect her.

It looks like Mike my son wont be here for Christmas, it looks like he's going back to England as soon as possible, personally I think he is making a huge mistake but he's made his mind up. I hope he finds what he's looking for and makes a go of it. Well he won't be sampling my runner beans and new potatoes with his Christmas dinner, wherever he has it.

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

I do love you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and gentle giant.

Its looks like another glorious day, the sun is shining and bright, there is a gentle breeze, but I think it could get very hot today so you would have to be very careful not to get heat stroke, you could chase Spud but as I said, you would have to be careful not to get heat stroke.

I checked my first planting of runner beans, they don't look too good at all, yet the second planting which I did in compost filled pots seem to be growing very quickly, I've put bamboo canes in the pots for the beans to climb up, plus string for them to grow along to other posts. Although I may have to transplant the plants into the ground if they get too big. Mike my son pointed out that one of my potato plants has broken the surface of the ground, hopefully more will be coming up soon. According to articles I have read I could plant more seed potatoes in January, so I might be on the look out for early varieties instead of main crop. Mike my son said yesterday that it seems a lot of work and waiting just to get a few newly dug potatoes and runner beans onto a dinner plate. Spoken like someone who has never had the pleasure of eating freshly picked veggies, I can't wait to hear what he thinks when he eats them.

It looks like the weather is finally warming up at long last, spring is here I'm glad to say, I hate winter, but summer is going to be very hot this year, I'm going to have to put a lot of water outside for the pack, I would like to give them a play pool to cool off in, but I'm wondering if they will wreck it.

Its time for you to go play with your buddies my boy.

I love you and miss you so much my sweet and gentle giant.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning my sweet and gentle big boy.

It looks like another beautiful day today, its bright and sunny, there's hardly a cloud in the sky, there is a gentle breeze, it would make a wonderful run and play day for you my boy, you could chase Spud all that you wanted to. Molly is getting better everyday, Spud is still his annoying self, and Bella is getting more nasty with Molly AND Mia. I wont have her growling at Mia, I know she's getting old, well she is old but there's no need to be nasty, she has never been mistreated while she's been with us, she as always been loved so I don't know why she is like she is.

Melissa is really getting into her preparation for opening her sandwich bar, she's bought an espresso coffee machine (which doesn't work properly so she has to take it back) as well as other items she needs, but she desperately needs a good knife set, I also want to buy her a chef's jacket, apron and hat. After all she has got to look professional as she will be turning out quality sandwiches.

My second lot of runner beans I planted seem to have taken off quite well, my first lot don't look too healthy, perhaps its wind burn damaging the leaves, I guess its a case of wait and see how they turn out.

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

I love you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and gentle big boy.

Yesterday was quite nice and sunny, nice and warm with no wind or rain, today looks quite similar, very little cloud cover, from where I am sitting its less then 5%, so it should be a really nice day today a good run and play day for you.

Melissa was practising her sandwich menu yesterday, she made me an amazing ham and salad sandwich, it was sooooooooooo nice that I wanted more. If she makes sandwiches like that she has got to be on a winner with her little sandwich bar. Not only is it good quality its quantity as well. She might be a little bit more expensive then others sandwich bars but she is making a far better product so therefore its good value for money. She's yet got to find a good quality baker at a good price who will deliver, but she will do it, I know she will.

The wind has picked up a bit now but its not too bad. Last night there was a bit of wind and I went to check my runner bean wigwam it looks like its holding up quite well to the wind, I just hope the plants hold up to the wind just as well. I'm still waiting for the potatoes to show their faces (as it were), earlies would have shown by now, I'm not sure about main crop.

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

I love you so much Merlin, please remember that my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning my very sweet and gentle big boy.

It looks like its going to be a glorious day today. Yesterday looked like it was going to rain all day long with the heavy dark cloud, but it just remained overcast. Today is nice and sunny, there is some dark cloud but the sun is coming through, there's no wind except for a gentle breeze which is just rustling the leaves on the trees, so it could be a nice run and play day for you my boy.

My runner beans are coming through at long last, only two seeds haven't germinated yet, but they could poke through today or tomorrow. No sign of my potatoes yet.

Your mum is going down to Melissa's shop today to install her kitchen cabinets to be ready for her work surfaces, I'm really getting excited for her, if anyone can make a go of it, Melissa can. Apparently it will be the only sandwich bar in the town and Melissa is already looking at approaching banks and offices to supply sandwiches to the office workers as well as passers by. She is going to have a lot of sleepless nights wondering what she can do better, what other items to put on the menu. Its going to be a lot of work for her.

I guess its time that you went and had some fun with your buddies.

Remember Merlin, I love you my boy and I miss you so much.

CONGRATULATIONS MY BOY, YOUR DIARY HAS BEEN CHOSEN FOR "TODAYS PICKS!" WELL DONE, I AM SO PROUD OF YOU!

Good morning Merlin my sweet and gentle big boy.

At the moment there is very heavy cloud cover, which hopefully will pass overhead soon, most of the cloud is very dark, so we might get some rain today. Well it will save me watering the runner beans and potatoes. The runner beans are slowly coming through one by one, I'm wondering what's happening to the potatoes, I've always planted early varieties which come through quite quickly, this lot are main crop which might take a bit longer to come through.

Did I tell you about Melissa's sandwich bar she is opening soon? She's going to call it “Upper Crust.” which was your mums idea. She has prepared a menu, she has bought quite a lot of produce so she can do a trial run with quantities, costings and so on, your mum and I have given her a few ideas as to what might do well on her menu. I've told her a nice addition would be a “Ploughman's Lunch,” which is basically crusty bread, fresh lightly salted butter with a strong cheddar cheese, a strong Mustard Piccalilli, Branston pickle and a couple of pickled onions. SOOOOO NICE with a cup of coffee. My mouth is watering thinking about it.

Well I guess its time that you went and played with your buddies and had some fun.

I do love you and miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning my sweet and gentle big boy.

Its very early here at the moment, the sky looks like there is about 50% cloud cover, so hopefully it will be nice and warm again today although there is a fairly brisk breeze at the moment.

Three of my runner beans has at last broken the surface of the soil, with luck the rest will break through soon. I want fresh from the garden runner beans with my Christmas lunch!!!! Frozen runner beans never taste the same as freshly picked. All I am waiting on now is the potatoes to break through, there is nothing like new potatoes dug from the garden, cooked and put on a plate with a roast dinner.

Mia is really growing up fast, once she starts talking I'm going to wear my ear muffs. She really is a sweet little girl Merlin, she is so precious my boy and like you she is always making me laugh. She is a joy.

I guess its time that you went and had some fun Merling with your buddies.

I love you my boy and I miss you so much.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning my sweet and gentle big boy, my very own gentle giant.

Its very cloudy today Merlin, but still quite bright and sunny where the sun is breaking through the cloud, its nice and warm with a soft gentle breeze. I think it could be a really nice run and play day for you my boy, you could run around all that you wanted to.

Yesterday the power went off at 6am and didn't come back until 6pm! Basically I couldn't do anything all day long. There was never this problem before this government came to power, they wont listen to people who run the power stations that more and more power stations are required, but typically ignorant and arrogant government refused to upgrade the infrastructure so we get lots of power cuts.

I was parked off most of the day yesterday on the bench outside the garage drinking tea, Molly came and laid beside me keeping me company, she really is a sweet little girl Merlin. Mia does get a bit heavy handed with her, but Molly doesn't snap or growl. Last night Mia was trying to play with Molly while Molly was eating her dinner and Molly again didn't snap or growl. I am quite proud of her Merlin, many dogs would have bitten Mia.

Well I suppose its time that you went and played with your buddies and have some more fun.

I love you my boy

Your ever loving Daddy.

CONGRATULATIONS MERLIN, YOUR DIARY IS ONE OF TODAYS PICKS!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. WELL DONE MY BY I AM SO PROUD OF YOU!!!!

Good morning Merlin my sweet and so gentle big boy.

This morning started off really nasty, a very heavy damp mist, but now the sun has broken through and there's not a cloud in the sky, and a very gentle breeze. Quite nice a day to sit and watch the world go by outside, or you could run after Spud and give him a good talking to.

I turned my laptop on this morning so I could begin to write in your diary when the power went off (AGAIN) so I logged off until I was ready. I started off my lunch, I'm making myself a corned beef stew and generally throwing everything into the pot and let it bubble away to its hearts content. Anyway I cannot spend too long writing in your diary in case the battery in my laptop runs out.

Melissa surprised me, she is considering starting a little sandwich bar, she's already found a little shop and has been in contact with the local health department and Coca cola to install a fridge for cold drinks. I'll say one thing for her, she doesn't sit on her backside and expect things to come to her, she goes out and grabs it with both hands.

I guess I had better stop here now my boy and post this on your diary and its time that you went and had some fun with your buddies.

I do love you Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my sweet and gentle boy.

Its a glorious day today, just like yesterday. Its beautiful outside, not a cloud in the sky to be seen anywhere, a nice gentle breeze, it really is a gorgeous day. You could run and play my boy, but you would have to watch that you didn't overheat chasing Spud.

I was looking at some of your photographs as a puppy and as fully grown, your puppy pictures are so sweet Merlin, as your mum once said, “You are too pretty to be a boy Merlin.” But you were my pretty boy. Then the one of you fully grown and sitting down looking at me, that was always one of my favourites, so handsome, a GSD to perfection in every way. A number of people remarked “What a beautiful dog,” and I would smile, my chest would swell and I'd say, “Yes he is and he's my my boy Merlin.” There is still that huge space in my heart that you took up Merlin and you will always be there my big gentle boy. I still miss you so much Merlin, a perfect and wonderful friend like you only comes along once in a life time, I just wish you had been with me a lot longer. I wanted the both of us to grow old together sitting side by side watching the world go by. I miss you so much Merlin, Only God and I know how much I miss you my big gentle boy.

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

I will love you for eternity Merlin.

You ever loving Daddy
