Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy, I hope you are having a great time, because you deserve to.

Today is very over cast, I guess its about 8/10th cloud cover, so its a bit chilly this morning so whether it will warm up later is anyone's guess.

A locksmith came yesterday and removed the steering lock on your mums Land Rover, he took it all off in about 15 minutes flat! He had to go back to his workshop to take the lock apart and remove the broken part of the key, cut a new key then come back here and refit the steering lock, to put it all back again I suppose took him about half an hour. I was dreading taking it apart myself as the instructions in the Land Rover workshop manual makes it sound very complicated. I was so pleased the Land Rover agent suggested getting a locksmith to do the work, it saved me a heck of a headache.

Molly is laying beside me being as good as gold. This morning when I woke up she took one look at me and came bounding into the bedroom, jumped up on my bed and really snuggled in close to me. She really is a sweet little girl Merlin she is so full of love, well except for most of Melissa's cats, she loves chasing them all over the house except for one, a sweet little black and white cat. For some reason they really like each other, its really nice watching them interact.

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

I love you Merlin, please never forget that OK?

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy.

It doesn't look to be a very nice day today, very cold and overcast, but thankfully no wind. We did have a thunderstorm earlier which made Bella bark her head off. Spud, Hobo and Molly don't bother barking, but Spud is absolutely terrified of thunder, he shakes and shakes and I feel really sorry for him. I give him a cuddle but he still shakes. This morning he was so sweet, he came to say good morning to me. This is what I mean about Spud, at times he really is a sweet boy, yet other times I could strangle him. That boy is one heck of an enigma.

Your mum has done it again, she broke the key of her Land Rover in the lock and now she's stuck, I'll be glad when she gets her new little car then at least if something goes wrong its fixed under warranty. Anyway she rang the local Land Rover agent to get a whole new steering lock and ignition switch and they told her to get a locksmith to remove the broken key and cut a new one, so that has saved her quite a bit of money for parts.

Because your mum can't start her car she is stuck at home and we've got Mia for the day. I was getting something out of the cupboard and she came wandering up to see what I was doing, so I said “Hello Mia,” she replied as clear as day, “Hello.” My heart just skipped a beat, it sounded so sweet. She really is a lovely little girl Merlin, I know you would have loved her as much as everyone else. Molly loves her very much, but Molly plays a bit too rough for her at the moment.

Molly really loves annoying Melissa's cats, she chases them around the house and when they escape on top of a cupboard Molly looks up with a satisfied look on her face. But one little black and white cat Molly really likes her, the cat rubs up against Molly and Molly gives her a big lick. So funny.

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

Never forget my boy, I love you so much.

You ever loving Daddy.

Good afternoon Merlin my so sweet and wonderful big boy. I'm late today because your mum, Mike and I went to the mall, to get a replacement laptop for your mum and we also ended up getting a new TV after the last one blew up. I had got use to watching the little 22 inch TV and now the new 42 inch will appear massive again. I also got a new cell phone, my old one is one of the touch screen type which I hate, I prefer one with buttons!

Your mum has tried to contact the car rental people to take her rented car back, but she can't get hold of them, perhaps she'll get it longer for free.

Its a bright sunny day, but very windy, I hate high winds I really do. But I reckon you could have a good run and play day chasing Spud. I really wish Molly was bigger and heavier because Spud takes advantage of her smaller size and is forever putting her down on the ground. She gives a good account of herself but she isn't big enough to do the same to Spud. I've got a good mind to get a boy GSD puppy and watch him grow to your size and knock Spud on his backside, but I doubt if your mum wants another puppy.

Your mum had a bit of a panic attack this morning, when she started the Land Rover it began to misfire badly. I told her it was raining heavy yesterday and it had got the ignition wet, in the end it cleared itself and began firing on all 8 cylinders. She does panic.

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

I love you so much Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Its still dark here, but as far as I can see its very overcast again this morning so I don't think it wont be very warm today at all, but it might make a good run and play day for you my boy.

Its just turned 6am and I let the pack out. I don't know why he does it but Spud has always got to bark his head off, I chased him but when he stopped running he started barking again. I've said it before and I'll say it again, “At times Spud can be a really lovely boy, other times he can be a pain in the neck and this morning he was a pain in the neck. I went out there this morning to stop Bella and Hobo running up to the fence line again, Bella didn't want to come outside and Hobo snuck off somewhere, but he didn't go up to the fence line. Just as well, I'm fed up taking him to the vets to get stitched up! That boy really don't learn, and come to that neither does Bella. When he got really hurt last time Hobo had his muzzle on, the dogs next door must have torn it off of him when they attacked him, now I am not putting muzzles on either Bella or Hobo unless they muzzle their dogs next door, being muzzled Bella and Hobo can't protect themselves.

Molly can be a pain in the neck in the mornings, she has to say hello to everyone, including Bella who growls and snaps at her, this morning she was jumping over Bella, Hobo and Spud who had only just woken up who growled and snapped at her. I called her so she jumped up on my bed and said hello to me. At the moment she is laying under my desk trying to bite the reflection off of my watch. Daft dog! But she is sweet.

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

I love you so much Merlin and always will.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy, I hope you are having lots and lots of fun with your buddies running and jumping and chasing and having a high old time.

Yesterday was even better then the day before, by about 10 or 11 am it was glorious outside, it was beautifully sunny and bright, no wind and very little if any cloud, but it wasn't too hot, it was just right. You could have played all day long, you could have chased Spud until you got fed up or simply wanted to go to sleep on my bed.

Its still dark here, it looks like its overcast, so I don't know yet what kind of day its going to be. I hope its like yesterday.

Tomorrow hopefully your mum can order her new car, then at least she's got something reliable and under manufacturers warranty, so if anything goes wrong with it, they fix it for free. I started your mums Land Rover, its got a beautiful V8 engine, it sounds like a V8 should do that, gorgeous V8 warble.

We have got to get a new TV, the one we bought just before Christmas went weird so it was sent back to the shop who sent it for repair about 3 or 4 weeks ago, they phoned yesterday and told your mum that they are giving her a refund as they are unable to repair it. I must admit I am impressed with their service.

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

I love you my boy, and always will.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy. I hope that you are having lots and lots of fun and games with your buddies AND your girlfriend Lady Zara.

Yesterday afternoon was gorgeous, it was so nice and warm in the sun, in fact it was bordering on hot. Yesterday though the pack drove me nuts with their barking, they barked at everything that moved, everyone and their granny decided to walk their dogs right in front of the property. They love playing outside but when they all start barking it its more then I can stand. They were told to go indoors and behave.

Today looks uncertain, it could be a day like yesterday or it could be pouring with rain any second. For now its very cloudy and no wind, the sun isn't breaking through the cloud. We'll see how it turns out, but for now it would make a brilliant run and play day for you my boy as its not too chilly, I suppose you could call it fresh. You could run and chase Spud as much as you liked.

Mia had some pictures taken at Kindergarten, she looks very unsure of herself, but she looks so beautiful Merlin. She turns so many heads, she is so gorgeous my boy. I'm going to scan them and post them for family to see.

Well I guess its time for you to go play with your buddies my sweet and wonderful big boy.

I love you and I miss you beyond words my boy, you will always be in my heart and soul.

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Yesterday afternoon was so nice and warm in the sun, I hope today will be the same So far this morning is very bright and sunny, no cloud and no wind, so with luck it will be like yesterday, nice and warm. The pack loved it outside yesterday, Molly and Spud were running and playing a usual, one thing I have noticed, although Spud can catch her in a straight line, she has learned to suddenly turn left or right throwing Spud off, she has also learned to use the undergrowth and bushes to throw him off. She's getting to be a clever little girl, a typical GSD. Molly sometimes has a really soft minute or two, I call her over to me and tell her “Who's a good girl Molly, who's a very good girl?” She nearly folds herself in half in her happiness. LOL she is so very sweet too Merlin.

Mike took your mums Land Rover to work yesterday to make sure the brakes are OK, he came him and said its fine. I checked out the master cylinder and it appears not to be leaking any more, THANKFULLY! Your mum has said that when she gets her new car I can have the Land Rover, wow that's good of her as I am putting most of the money up for her new car. Anything for a quiet life Merlin. I don't know how she is going to cope with her weekly shopping, she use to fill the back of the Land Rover and this new car has got nothing like the space. Oh well, its her choice.

I guess its time to go play my sweet and wonderful big boy with your buddies.

I love you so much Merlin, I hope you know this my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning my sweet and wonderful Merlin, hows my big boy today?

It another nothing day today, plenty of cloud but no wind thankfully, its also quite chilly. Last night was very cold, I let the pack out and as usual Molly and Spud came running in no problem and surprise surprise both Bella and Hobo came running in. I reckon it as too cold for them to sniff around for long.

Your mums car has FINALLY been repaired and the so called mechanic brought it to the house last night. Well, I want to check it out before your mum drives it. Your mum is so sick of the Land Rover she wants to buy another car, so I am giving her my Jaguar because I can't drive it any more, she can put that against a new car. She's rented a little Hyundai the past two weeks and she likes it so she wants to get one of those new. They are very good on petrol, 17 miles to the gallon for the Land Rover compared to 47 miles to the gallon for the Hyundai. Some customers are getting even better miles per gallon or so the salesman said, he mentioned 70 miles per gallon. With petrol prices as they are its going to save her a lot of money each month. I intend to keep the Land Rover, as too much money has been spent on it which we would never get back. It would make a good spare vehicle. The Hyundai is a little on the narrow side, I rode with your mum on Sunday to look at new cars, we were brushing shoulders! Mike my son said, “Its so narrow it should be driven on a motorcycle licence.”

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

I love you Merlin, so much my boy, I will never ever forget you or stop loving you.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy.

It looks like a good play day for you today Merlin, its nice and bright and sunny, no cloud and no wind, so you should be able to have lots and lots of fun my boy.

Last night I let the pack out to do their business before bedtime, after a few minutes Molly, Spud then Bella came running inside. I called Hobo but no sign of him. I got my search light out and canned the property and guess where I spotted him? Yep by the fence line AGAIN!!!. He could see I was annoyed with him so he came indoors via the long route, the side fence line and the front fence line of the property. I really don't know what goes on inside his head, he's already had his head stitched up after nearly losing his ear and he goes back for more!

For a while you mum has been searching for my works pension policies from UK without any luck. After moving halfway around the world and moving twice here I had assumed they had been lost and resigned myself to losing my works pension. Yesterday she came into my study and declared “FOUND IT”! She is like a bloodhound, if its there she will find it. So thankfully I will now get my works pension.

When I let the pack out I always go out with Molly and Spud to stop Spud getting spiteful with Molly and hurting her. The thing is I chase Spud off and then Molly chases after him and the whole thing starts all over again!!!

I guess its time that you went and played my sweet and wonderful big boy with your buddies.

I love you so much my boy, so very very much.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Its a kind of nothing day today, very overcast, chilly and no wind, from where I am sitting I can't see any break in the cloud whatsoever. But I suppose it would be a good run and play day for you my boy, you could run to your hearts content and put Spud in his place. I can't remember if I told you, Bella tried it on with Spud and he wasn't having any, there was all manner of flashing teeth and growling, I thought I had better break it up before more visits to the vet were required. I managed to get them apart and sent them off in opposite directions.

Your mum bought me a feather pillow yesterday, I haven't had one of those in years, well since I was in the RAF, it was so nice Merlin. Those foam ones in the end go flat and hard, at least the feather one it can be fluffed up. I had a REALLY nice and comfortable sleep. In the RAF they told us to hand in our feather pillows to be replaced by foam ones. YEA RIGHT. I hid my feather pillows and only brought out the foam ones on inspections, while my feather ones were locked up safe and sound.

My back is giving me problems again today, I had to take one of my really strong pain killing tablets, they are the only pain killers that take the edge off the pain. I am fed up being in pain all the time Merlin. Don't worry my boy, I'll get over it.

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

I love you so much Merlin, so very much.

Your ever loving Daddy.
