Good morning my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its a really lovely day today, nice and bright and sunny, no cloud, no wind and its nice and warm, not baking hot like it has been this summer. It would make a really good run and play day for you my boy, you could chase Spud all that you liked.

Mia was in a really good mood this morning, she helps your mum sweep up all the dogs hairs. She does try and help your mum quite a bit, she picks up the dogs bowls every morning after they have eaten and puts them on the dogs bowl table, but we had to move the dogs from the cupboard to somewhere up high as Mia kept on feeding the dogs their biscuits. Of course the dogs loved it being fed more.

Mia is talking a lot more now, she says “please” which come out “Pwese” and “thank you.” It sounds so sweet. I wish you were here Merlin as I know you would love and protect her. Molly is very good with Mia, but Molly can be a bit clumsy and heavy handed, or should that be heavy pawed, she knocks Mia over sometimes which results in Mia crying, pointing at Molly and saying “Naughty Molly.”

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

Always remember Merlin, I love and miss you so much.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy Merlin.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

There's quite a lot of cloud in the sky, but its still quite bright with the sun breaking through, its quite comfortable as far as the temperature goes and there's no wind, so I think it would make a good run and play day for you.

Mia was in a very good mood this morning, she was full of smiles and helping your mum sweep up, so funny to watch her trying to sweep with a full size broom. This is what I mean, when she's in a good mood she is a really lovely child, but when she's in one of her temper tantrum moods she can be a real pain in the neck. In a couple of months its her second birthday, the “Terrible Two's,” oh my.

I had to tell Molly to get off my bed last night as she was taking up all the room, I managed to fall asleep and that was when she snuck back on my bed. I don't mind when she lays beside me back to back, but when she lays across the bed I can't get comfortable or even stretch out. Another thing she does that you use to do, jump up on my bed and scratch shaking my bed with me inside it!!!! Bella don't go outside much nowadays, I think its too cold for her aching bones. Its not nice getting old Merlin, I know!!

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

I love and miss you so much Merlin, one day we will be together again and what fun we will have together.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy Merlin.

Good morning Merlin my very special sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

MERLIN, MERLIN, MERLIN, YOUR DIARY HAS BEEN MADE ONE OF TODAY'S PICKS. WELL DONE MY BOY I AM SO PROUD OF YOU.

Its a nasty day today, its been raining just about all night and its a light drizzle this morning with a bit of a stiff breeze and quite cold. Last evening before bed I had to put on a sweater. Molly must have been cold last night as she jumped up on my bed and laid beside me back to back, keeping each other warm. Right at this moment she's laying beside me probably going to sleep. When the pack was let out this morning, they all rushed outside, did their ablutions and rushed back indoors. This country is messed up, its either very hot or very cold, with very few days a happy medium.

I have been thinking again about buying my new car, there are two which I have narrowed it down to, they are different marques but both are made in the same factory, for the exact same car one is considerably cheaper then the other. The only real difference is the badge on the grill. Its bonkers.

Mia had a bit of a whine again this morning giving me a headache. She starting to talk a lot more now, she doesn't call me Granddad she calls me “Dad Dad,” she calls a banana a nana, a tomato a ma-toe, she's also saying “I love you,” which is quite sweet.

I was thinking this morning about the time when you was asleep on my bed when Bella suddenly barked, you woke up wondering what was going on a fell off my bed. The look on you face was an absolute picture, your mum and I burst out laughing, you looked at us and walked off totally disgusted which made us laugh even more. You always managed to make me laugh, even when you didn't intend to.

Well my boy 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, please never forget that.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

I love and miss you so much Merlin and I always will.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its another very overcast day and quite cool, this morning was actually quite cold as was last night. Molly must have been cold as she jumped up on my bed and stayed there all night, taking up most of the room!!! Remember how I had the same problem with you? I''d tell you to get off my bed so I could get in it, and you would give me your paw. How many times did I have to push you off so I could get into bed? When I pushed you off you would look at me most indignantly. To have you back here with me right now I'd gladly give you my bed. Molly is never far away from anyone, last evening while I was watching TV she laid her head on my leg and looking at me with her beautiful eyes, just like you use to do and right now she's in your place under my desk. I wish you were here with Molly, I know that you would love her and you could teach Spud a few lessons on manners when he knocks her over. As I booted my computer my picture frame also booted up and one of the first pictures was of you, so handsome and so perfect in every way. I do miss you so much Merlin, I never will stop missing you.

My granddaughter Mia was in one of her moods again this morning, I love her very much but quite frankly I'm glad when she's taken to play school so I can get some peace and quiet. When she's good she's a sweet heart, but when she gets into her whining moods she's a pain in the neck. Sometimes I think that I'm too old to have another baby in the house, and then when she's her sweet self she melts my heart.

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

I love and miss you so much my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning my very sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its a very overcast and rainy day today, and quite chilly. When the dogs were let out to do their ablutions they ran straight back inside, and Spud being the usual pain in the neck did a poo inside the house. BOY your mum was annoyed and she let him know she was annoyed.. I just opened the front door and they all ran outside except for Bella, as its stopped raining, just a light drizzle. Its supposed to rain for the next few days and hopefully clears up by the weekend. I reckon it would make a good run and play day today for you my boy.

Your mum has got another crazy idea in her head, she's preparing the ground for laying fancy bricks outside the front door patio, just where she gets these idea's I'll never know, but once she gets an idea in her head nothing shifts it. I can't help her because my back is totally stuffed, I can't stand for more then a few minutes and getting down to actually lay the bricks I'd never get up again, so all I can do is advise her as to the best way to do it. At least she listens to me in that regard even if she don't listen to me when I tell her that its not a good idea and that its a specialised job to lay bricks properly. It would be quicker to lay cement, but the dogs would run all over it while its wet leaving paw prints in it.

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

Never forget Merlin just how much I love you and miss you.

Your ever loving Daddy

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Good morning my very sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its a very overcast day today, last night and this morning was quite chilly, its warmed up a little but it does look like its going to rain. It looked like it was going to rain yesterday but it didn't. The weather forecast says it is going to rain tomorrow and the next day and I think the day after, then its going to be sunny but cloudy over next weekend. Today would make a good run and play day for you my boy, you could chase Spud without over heating.

For the past few days Molly has been sleeping on my bed, I suppose her usual place next to the window is getting too cold for her. She's laying under my desk beside me right now. I gave her one of my blackcurrant hard boiled sugar free sweets, she spat it out, obviously she didn't like it, so I just gave her a handful of her doggy biscuits. I must admit I do tend to spoil her, but I think she deserves spoiling.

Mia hasn't been very well the past few days, it looks like she might have tonsillitis. Poor little mite I really feel sorry for her.

When I wake up in the mornings I always remember how you use to stand beside my bed waiting for me to wake up, when I did wake up you always looked so pleased to see me. Do you remember how I would wrap my arms around your massive neck and say “I love you Merlin.” I do miss you so much my boy. There is still a massive hole in my heart where you were, yes I am a little sad my boy, but I do have wonderful memories of you and that does help a little.

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

I do love and miss you so much Merlin, so very much.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy Merlin.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

I hope that you are having lots and lots of fun playing with your buddies, you deserve all the fun you can get my boy.

Its another bright and sunny day today, no wind and no cloud but thankfully not too hot. Yesterday started out warm but not too hot, but by the afternoon it turned out to be extremely hot. The dogs came indoors and your mum who was doing one of her projects outside also came indoors. I was outside for a while, it was OK in the shade but in the sun it was a bit too much, and I love the heat.

Mia my Granddaughter was in one of her whining moods this morning, Molly licked her and she started crying and crying and crying. I must admit I got very annoyed with her, she was really going overboard. Molly is so good with Mia, Mia sits on her or tries to ride her like a horse, pulls her ears and Molly puts up with it, Molly doesn't murmur or growl or try to move away. I love Mia obviously, but when she gets in one of those moods I really don't like her. Maybe one day Mia will realise that Molly is the best friend she will ever have.

I suppose its time for you to go play some more with your buddies.

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

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good afternoon Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

I'm sorry I'm a bit late today, I went to the local shops with your mum and bought lunch on the way home, so now I've got a full tummy. The dogs got some too as there was far too much for me, they were very grateful as they scoffed down what I gave them. Its a wonder they don't get tummy ache.

Its a very hot day today, its almost stifling and there's no wind which doesn't help. This weather can't make its mind up, its nice and cool for days, then its boiling hot. All the dogs are indoors to get out of the heat, I can't say that I blame them. Not a good run and play day my boy, its simply too hot.

Today is a public holiday, so I've got everyone here including Mia's dad so my usual quiet Friday isn't quiet. Your mum caught up on some sleep this morning which she really needed and as well she has got a long weekend to catch up on more sleep. I was awake quite early this morning and as I went to sleep quite late I'm now feeling very sleepy. I might have a nap later.

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

I love and miss you more then I can ever tell you my sweet boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning my boy, have you been having lots and lots of fun with your buddies?

Its quite a nice day today, bright and sunny, no cloud, no wind but quite cool. It would make a really nice run and play day for you. I let the pack out and immediately ran to the fence bordering the road and started barking, surprisingly I called them away and the they did as they were told, even Spud and Bella. Molly came running up to me sat down expecting a treat, closely followed by Spud, which of course I gave them.

It was so funny the other day, Mia my granddaughter must have surprised Spud, he barked loudly and ran off, Mia's eyes opened like organ stops and she said “oooooooooooh,” your mum, Melissa and I thought it was extremely funny. Mia was in no danger of being bitten as Spud is extremely careful around Mia, even if she does surprise him. Spud is one heck of an enigma, at times he is a really sweet boy, other times he can be a pain in the neck, as you found out for yourself.

Melissa my daughter is really doing well with her little sandwich shop, she is moving to bigger premises sometime in May which will give her a far bigger customer base and there are far less beggars and there is a security guard office right next door, so she is going to be a lot safer then she is at the moment. She has had beggars come into her little shop demanding cups of coffee and getting agitated when she refuses. Luckily other shop keepers comes to her aid and gets rid of the beggars.

I am really looking forward to getting my new car, but I doubt if I would be able to buy for at least another 3 months. I've waited this long ,so another 3 months is not such a train smash. I'm also looking forward to taking a trip to the Addo elephant reserve about 800 kilometres from here, it should be a really nice drive in the SUV I am thinking about buying.

Well my boy I suppose its time that you went and played some more with your buddies. God willing I'll talk to you some more tomorrow.

Please remember just how much I love and miss you my sweet boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning my precious boy, I hope that you are having lots and lots of fun with your buddies running and chasing and jumping and generally having a great time.

Its a very dull and overcast day today, slightly chilly but not too bad. It would make an excellent run and play day for you as you could chase Spud all that you liked over the property without getting too hot.

I think that I have finally decided what new car I want to buy. I just hope that I can get a good deal, if I cannot, then I will perhaps rethink my choice or go to another dealer of the same brand. I really want to go to the ADDO elephant reserve, its my favourite place in all of South Africa. I just love watching and photographing herds of elephants and the antics of the babies. Really wonderful to watch. The car I have in mind even your mum likes it, and she is very hard to please when it comes to motor cars, actually it was her who suggested looking at the car in the first place. When I took it for a test drive she came with me and she nodded her approval. High praise indeed. I know for a fact that when I get my new car I am going to look for excuses to drive it, going into town to buy bread or milk or something, no doubt the novelty will wear off after a while

Lately my sugar level has been quite high, so your mum got me diabetic hard boiled sweets, sugar free soda drink and sweeteners to go into my tea instead of sugar, which has help enormously to bring my sugar level down to a safe level. My blood pressure has dropped by quite a bit and is in the “safe zone” at last. I check my sugar levels and blood pressure almost every day and adjust my medication accordingly. I must admit I am a lot healthier then I was three years ago.

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 I miss you so much.

Your ever loving Daddy.
