Merlin my sweet and gentle giant.

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

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful biggest boy.

The weather is glorious here today my boy, nice and warm, not a cloud in the sky, so bright and sunny, no wind except for a really gentle breeze. It would make a really stunning run and play day for you my boy, apparently its going to be nice weather for at least the next week or so, with a few days of rain later, then more sun.

I just went out and checked my runner beans to see if they are coming through the soil, they reckon it takes 7 to 14 days for them to germinate, today is day 8, so hopefully they will come through by next weekend. I might have to transplant the runner beans the pots I have sowed them in, into the ground. I'll look at that next weekend.

Yesterday Mia went for a tractor ride with her big uncle Mike, I don't know who was having more fun, him or Mia, they both had a huge smile on their faces. I hope Mike is keeping an eye on the diesel in the tractor tank, because I don't want to have to bleed the system if it runs out!

Your mum has hurt her back, I have no idea how she did it, I guess we're both getting frail now.

Its time for you to go play and have some fun with your buddies my boy.

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

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful biggest boy.

It looks like a glorious day today, there is some cloud, but they are white and fluffy and the sun is shinning and just a gentle breeze, it would make a really nice run and play day for you my boy, you could chase Spud all you wanted to and maybe with Molly's help corner him and give him a good talking to.

Yesterday Mike was giving Mia a tractor ride, her face was a picture, she loves going for tractor rides with her big uncle Mike. As soon as she hears the tractor clatter into life she makes it known that she wants a ride, and if Mike drives away without her she gets a really sad face and starts crying. At the moment she's entertaining everyone with her little antics, that child is such a little actress, everyone is roaring with laughter. That child has brought so much happiness and laughter into the house, its unbelievable. She has certainly given me a new lease on life. My only hope is that she remembers me how I remember my Granddad, I loved him so much, with my uncle Charlie he was my hero.

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

I love and miss you so much Merlin, my best friend I ever had.

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy, I hope the weather is better where you are. Last night was very cold and it poured with heavy rain all night long, thankfully its stopped raining and it look like it going to clear up although it very cloudy directly overhead. With luck it will blow over. Molly decided it was very cold last night and jumped up on my bed for a cuddle to get warm. With all this rain I hope it hasn't drowned my seed potatoes and runner beans, we'll just have to see.

Hopefully this weekend we can do a bit more sorting out the garden weeding and transplanting plants growing in pots. As I said, I want freshly picked runner beans and new potatoes for Christmas lunch. I really can't wait, there is nothing like picking fresh veggies straight from the garden.

Mia is one heck of an actress, she was dancing to music on the TV, it was so funny to watch Merlin, she was turning round and round, dipping and waving her arms in the air, it was definitely a Kodak moment. That child has brought so much laughter to the house, its so wonderful, she has given me a new lease on life. She is fast approaching the “Terrible Two's,” I know she is going to drive us all bonkers, but a nice kind of bonkers.

I guess its time that you went and had some more fun with your buddies, remember to keep a place for me my boy.

I love you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Congratulations Merlin, your diary has been chosen as one of “Today's picks.” WELL DONE, I AM SO PROUD OF YOU!

Last night we had fairly high winds and quite a bit of rain, I expected to see my runner bean wigwam laying over on its side but surprisingly its still upright. The rain will have done the beans a bit of good as well as my seed potatoes, hopefully we will have freshly picked potatoes and runner beans for Christmas lunch. I'm not too sure about the second batch of seed potatoes I intend to plant, the eyes haven't as yet produced any sprouts. I'll just have to wait and see. The rain has stopped but its extremely wet outside so Molly and Spud are going to get very wet indeed. But it would make a fairly good run and play day for you, as its very overcast there is a slight breeze so you could run and play all you wanted without getting overheated.

Mia is really getting into her character now, she is so amazing Merlin, she's just how I like a child to be, she has an amazing amount of fun with Mike her uncle, they play together and she screams with laughter. There's nothing better Merlin then the sound of a child's laughter in a house, that child has brought so much happiness into the house Merlin its unbelievable. Since you left Merlin I was sinking into that deep depression that you got me out of, I didn't care if I lived or died, as I thought I had nothing to look forward to, but now, oh boy she has pulled me up by my boot straps and I so much want to be here as long as I can with her, what would be even better is you here beside me. Molly is a sweet little girl, she has her bad points but her good points far outweigh her bad.

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

I love you so much Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good afternoon Merlin, hows my sweet and wonderful big boy today.

I'm a bit late today as I haven't been sleeping too well lately, I keep waking up during the night, so I decided to catch up on some sleep today which has helped quite a bit.

Its quite a nice day today, its a bit windy but not too bad, (its not gale force!) there's a lot of white fluffy clouds and quite a lot of blue sky. During the day lately its been quite hot, in fact very hot so you would have to watch that you didn't overheat when chasing Spud around the property.

I didn't do as much as I wanted to yesterday, I was going to charge the tractor battery with one of the generators, but the fuse was blown and I didn't have another one. I've got to get hold of more fuses from somewhere. I watered the seed potatoes and runner beans yesterday, and Molly being so nosy had to see what I was doing, needless to say she got very wet. I sat outside for a while after watering and nearly fried sitting in the sun, so I sat on a chair in the garage where it was much cooler with Molly laying beside me. She is a sweet little girl Merlin and I know you would love her as much as I do.

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

I do love you Merlin so much, you know that...right?

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Today looks very much like the past few days very overcast with some blue sky, no wind and thankfully no rain, so it should be a good day for you to run and play.

Yesterday we were going to do so much work, like planting and so on, but the day got away from us. Your mum went shopping with Melissa and Mia, when those three get together there is no knowing when they are coming home. I put melon seeds into pots so they can hopefully germinate and not much else, oh yes your mum mike and I repaired the fence screen to stop the dogs attacking each other, then later had massive home made beef burgers cooked on the braai (BBQ), watched TV and then went to bed. This morning I intend to charge the battery on the tractor using one of the generators which will give it a boost charge. I really need to change the alternator as the one on there is not working. As I've said before, I've got so many projects planned for next year my head is spinning.

Molly at times drives me bonkers, she either follows me (which I don't mind) or she walks in front of me and keeps stopping and looking back to make sure that I am following (which I do mind) and I nearly fall over her. I've just looked outside and the clouds above here look very angry, I think we could be in for some rain, which is a pain as I wont be able to drag the generator outside to charge the tractor battery.

I suppose its time that you went and played with your buddies.

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

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Its quite a nice day here today, very much like yesterday, very overcast with some blue sky, but thankfully no wind so it would be a nice run and play day for you my boy. Yesterday your mum did quite a bit of weed clearing which she intends to do again today and I'll plant some more runner beans, but this time in pots. Of course Mia was helping, she loves being outside with your mum, just like you did, you loved helping your mum pull out weeds. I suppose that as its a public holiday Mia will want her uncle Mike to give her a tractor ride around the property. She really loves her uncle Mike and he loves her so much.

Yesterday morning as I mentioned in your diary, Mikes car wouldn't start, your mum gave him a lift to work while I put his car battery on charge during the day. When Mike came home he managed to get his car started, I guess one of the engine management systems needed rebooting, just like a computer. I think he was worried that he would have to spend a lot of money to get it sorted out, so it was quite a relief when his car fired up, albeit a bit rough at first, then sorted it self out. I really hope I can get my pension pay out so I can buy myself a new little diesel work truck and buy Mike a new car. Although it wont be a big car, its going to be a nice little runabout that's cheap to run, like your mums new car.

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

I love you Merlin and I always will.

Your ever loving Daddy.
