Good afternoon Merlin my sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its another very hot day today, there's a bit of wind, but its a hot berg type wind, so its not cooling at all. I don't think you would like going outside today, all the pack are indoors today, its too hot even for Molly and Spud.

I'm a bit late today, I went shopping with your mum and looked at some new cars. I wish I had my pension today, I was offered a really good deal on a brand new car, and I don't know if that offer and that particular car will be available next month. I'll just have to wait and see.

I am sat in my study writing your diary and feeling so hot, even with the fan on. How I wish it would cool down.

Mia is being told off by her mum, that child is so strong willed, I know she is going to be a handful when she gets older. Come to that, she's a handful right now!

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

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

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy Merlin.

Good morning Merlin my very sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Its another hot day, no wind whatsoever and no cloud cover. We had a stiff breeze last night so the heat didn't wake me up so often, I woke up at about 4 am, then slept through. Maybe one of these days I will sleep right through until the morning. Molly, Spud and Bella are indoors, Hobo is out there somewhere mooching about somewhere on the property, sometimes at night he doesn't even come indoors.

Mia's dad is here again, so far he is behaving himself, if he starts problems again he's out on his ear, I wont stand for any more of his nonsense.

I was thinking about buying two cheaper cars so that Melissa can have a new car, I mentioned it to your mum and she reckons its a bad idea, as I wont be able to get into the car I was thinking of buying as its too low to the ground, so I have decided to buy the car I was thinking of buying and sort out Mikes car that he has left here when he went to UK. Its not in bad condition, in fact its in beautiful condition, so it should last her for quite a while.

Lately Bella has been laying beside me or never very far from me, she has never done that before so I wonder why she is doing it now.

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

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

Your ever loving Daddy.

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

Last night was so nice and cool, this morning when I awoke it was very misty actually quite chilly, its now almost 12 noon the sun has evaporated the mist and its now getting hot again, but there is a nice breeze. It might make a nice run and play day as long as you drank plenty of water. A few days last week what wind there was, was coming off the Kalahari desert and it was a really nasty hot wind, so hot that even the house fans were not cooling at all, all they did was blow hot air everywhere. Nasty.

My daughter's car is having problems, if I were able to work on it I could fix it for her, but sadly I cannot work on cars any more and because her car is so old it might not be worth taking it into a garage for repair, so it might be best to scrap it. As she cannot afford to buy another car I might have to change my plans with my new car, I might have to buy two new cheaper cars. I don't want to buy her a second hand car and end up with a load of problems, I'll see if I can buy new so at least she will have a warranty and her servicing is free for 5 years. I'll have to see what I can do, I'll have to do a bit of research.

I haven't heard from Mike my son about his getting a job, I hope he gets one soon and a good paying one at that.

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

I do love and miss you so much my boy. Please never forget that OK?

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my very sweet and wonderful gentle giant.

Thankfully its a much cooler day today, but still humid. It rained last night cooling everything off, I only woke up once last night and managed to sleep from 2 am right through to 6:30 am where usually I am wide awake at 4 am. It would make a good run and play day for you today my boy, as long as you drank lots of water.

Sometime soon I am going to have to take my laptop in for repair, so I wont be able to talk to you for a week or more. If I go on that trip to the ADDO elephant reserve I'll take my laptop with me, but I don't know if I will get Internet reception, so again I might not be able to talk to you for another week. Don't think I have forgotten you my boy, because that will never happen, never in a million years.

Mike my son has applied for a number of jobs, hopefully he will get a good one. The Royal Mail is his best bet, although its now privately owned the job comes with very good working conditions like sick pay and a pension when he retires. Won't he wont like is getting up early in the mornings, especially during the winter months when its snowing or pouring with rain and extremely cold winds.

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

I love you my boy and I do miss you.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin, hows my boy today? I hope that you are having lots and lots of fun with your buddies.

Its another very hot day today, no cloud whatsoever and no wind, not even a gentle breeze. I don't think today would be a good run and play day for you.

I am so proud that your diary is being picked for so many today's picks, Merlin, I don't think you know how proud I am of you, so very very proud my boy

I often sit and think of the wonderful times we had together, when you were a tiny little puppy and then when you grew up into a handsome and so perfect adult. Many people said to me that you are a really beautiful and handsome boy, my chest would swell with so much pride, you were perfect in every way. When you sat on your little hill by the fence people took notice of you, you looked so regal and majestic sitting there, strangers gave you a wide berth and when I took you for a walk around the town groups of trouble makers would make room for us to pass keeping a wary eye on you. Boy you made me so proud.

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

I do love you my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy..

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.
