Good morning Merlin my very sweet gentle giant.

Its very overcast again today, but not too cold, and bit on the fresh side and thankfully no wind. I don't know if its going to rain or not, at the moment though it would make quite a nice run and play day for you my boy.

Yesterday was my daughter Melissa's birthday, she turned 24. My goodness Merlin how the years have flown by, so much so its scary. As she was working last night I'm taking her out for dinner tonight to celebrate her birthday. Mike my son phoned last night from UK, it was so good to hear his voice. I do miss him so much Merlin. But thankfully he is doing well in UK, he's got a good job and a lot of friends and he's earning good money along with good prospects. I'm proud of him.

Now I've got a new car and mobile again I intend to meet an old friend of mine and go for lunches during the week. With a house full of females and now Mike my son is in UK I don't get to talk about things I'm interested in. It can get very lonely at times.

Well my boy its that time again, time to go play some more with your buddies.

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

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

My sweet and wonderful big boy Merlin

Good afternoon Merlin my sweet gentle giant.

I'm very late today, I was so tired this morning when I woke up at 4am, I decided to go back to sleep once everyone had left. I got my head down at 8am and finally woke up at 11:30 feeling much better. My back pain has eased quite a bit, but I still can't stand for very long. I can at least stand up from my chair without agonising pain shooting through my back.

Its a very overcast day today my boy, but fairly warm, it actually feels like spring. Last night and early this morning it poured with rain, but it stopped by around 7am. It would make a good run and play day for you my boy, you could teach Spud not to be such a bully with Molly.

I took my car in for repair last Friday and the main agent did the work, then Monday the garage phoned me to bring my car in again on Tuesday. I thought they had made some sort of mistake but took the car in anyway. Apparently there was a recall on my model car awhile ago and for some reason when they checked the VIN my car hadn't been done. Anyway to cut a long story short they carried out the work brilliantly. What with replacing the brake master cylinder and carrying out the recall work which was basically replacing the front suspension cost Chevrolet a heck of a lot of money. I must admit I am very impressed not only with Chevrolet but the local main agent who picked up that my car hadn't been done. Very friendly and efficient group of people.

Anyway my boy its that time again, time for you to go play some more with your buddies.

Please remember Merlin, just how much I love and miss you.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet gentle giant.

Its not a very nice day today, its very overcast and foggy, the sun is trying to break through but its too thick. Having said that though, it would be a good run and play day for you my boy.

I had to take my car into the main agent this morning for a recall, I've no idea what has got to be checked but they reckon its going to take all day. Anyway, I was dropped off at Melissa's sandwich shop where I had a nice cup of tea and a nice big breakfast, then your mum came in and she took me home where I am right now. I couldn't face another day wandering around town, my back hurts too much to do that. Besides which, I don't like leaving the dogs locked up all day. I came home and let them out to go play. Molly and Spud were doing their thing, Bella came indoors and Hobo is somewhere doing his thing. I feel a bit tired right now, I might take a nap later for a couple of hours.
In fact I keep dozing off right now.

Well my boy, its that time again, time for you to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

I will always love and miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and gentle giant.

Its another beautiful day today, nice and bright and sunny and quite warm. Last night was very warm, I had to turn off my heater in the bedroom. I reckon it would make a really nice run and play day for you my boy.

Yesterday I took your mum for lunch, it was quite expensive which I don't mind as long as the food is good, but I wasn't impressed at all with the quality of the food, my fillet was very tough so I wasn't impressed at all. I wont be going back there again. The best steak house in the town your mum doesn't like going to, its very good value and I have never ever had a bad meal in there. I can't win.

Mia's dad behaved himself over the weekend, I think I've got through to him I wont take his nonsense, but he still expects people to wait on him, he wont even get off of his backside to make a cup of coffee. Needless to say, when I make tea and coffee for your mum and Melissa I don't make him one.

I don't know if the man clearing the property is coming today, there is still a heck of a lot of work to be done, tree saplings have got to be thinned out as well as the grass needs cutting and a lot of tree branches have got to be cleared.

My back is finally getting better, but if I sit for too long my back locks up and then I am in agony again until my back frees itself.

Well my boy its that time again, 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.

Good afternoon Merlin my sweet gentle giant.

Its a really beautiful day today my boy, nice and bright and sunny, quite nice and warm and no wind. It would make a really nice run and play day for you my boy.

This afternoon I want to take your mum to lunch, I don't know if she is going to take Mia with us, but she's whining at the moment and crying over nothing as usual. Even Molly took sanctuary in my study. When she's like this I feel like kicking her up the bottom.

Melissa my daughter is working again today, she hasn't had a day off in weeks, she has really got to take time off otherwise she is going to become ill. I'll say one thing for Melissa, she's not lazy.

I thought the pain in my back had eased, but I sat on the edge of my bed drinking my tea, when I tried to get up I was in agony again. My back had locked up. I think I need a new body Merlin, this one is worn out.

Now the brakes on my Chevy are working like they should, its a real pleasure to drive. I wish you were here to ride in it Merlin.

Well my boy its that time again, time to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

I hope you know just how much I love and miss you Merlin. My best friend.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet gentle giant.

I am so sorry that I didn't write in your diary yesterday, I had to leave home early to get my car in for repair, it wasn't finished until late afternoon and by the time I picked up my car after it was finished by the time I got home I was so tired I couldn't think straight. I sat in my chair and kept dozing off. Anyway my car has been fixed properly thank goodness. This morning I went to the mall to get a bank statement of my account and found it was closed being as its a public holiday today. Anyway I had a good breakfast in the mall which was a bonus as I was quite hungry.

Today is a beautiful day, its nice and bright and sunny and very warm, well warmer then it has been, its actually so warm I've got the fan on my desk turned on low. It would be a really nice run and play day for you my boy, you could run and jump and chase and play all day long.

My back is still hurting like crazy, but at least now the pain pills are having some effect thank goodness. The worst time is in the evening after watching TV, my back sets and when I get up to go to bed its absolute agony. But its no use complaining, the pain will go in its own sweet time, I just hope its sooner rather then later.

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

Never forget my boy just how much I love and miss you.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet boy.

Its not as overcast today, but its still quite chilly. Hopefully it will warm up later. It would make a good run and play day for you my boy.

I'm in quite a bit of pain at the moment, I've put my back out again and even the strong pain killers aren't working that well. I just have to look at something heavy and my back goes out. That's what 20 years of military service does. Its no good complaining about it, I just have to get on with it.

I'm waiting for the GM main agent to phone me about a repair that's got to be done on my Chevy. The part was ordered on Monday so hopefully it will arrive today.

The man clearing the property should be coming this morning, he's been giving me a bit of nonsense as to why he didn't come yesterday. What annoys me, he expects me to believe his story, I didn't come down on the last banana boat. I just nodded but let him know I want the work done.

Its that time again my boy, time for you to go play some more with your buddies.

I love and miss you so much Merlin.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet gentle giant.

Its a strange day today, its supposed to rain but so far the rain has held off, its very overcast but it looks like its going to clear and become bright and sunny later on. I hope so, so that the man and his crew clearing the property can get some more work done. The property does look a lot different now most of the brush has been cleared, now we can see if there are any snakes around. That has been my biggest worry, snakes biting Mia or one of the dogs. I know snakes are supposed to keep down vermin, but I don't know what's worse, deadly snakes or mice, I think I'd rather have mice.

Mia was extremely naughty this morning, she tried to hit your mum with a shoe, so your mum smacked her and quite frankly I don't blame your mum. Mia came into my bedroom crying to me, I told her “Don't come crying to me Mia, you deserved that.”

Mike my son seems to be having a really good time in UK, he goes out quite a bit on day trips to places of interest, so now he's looking for a cheap little car to get him around. Cars are a lot cheaper in UK then they are here so he should be able to find something nice for not a lot of money.

Well my boy its that time again, time for you to go play some more with your buddies, I hope that you are looking after Smiley.

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

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy Merlin.

Good morning Merlin my sweet gentle giant.

Last night and this morning it poured with rain, but now its stopped and the sun is trying to break through the cloud, but it is starting to look a lot brighter. It would make a good run and play day for you my boy, except for the mud and wet paws that you would bring into the house.

The man clearing the property is supposed to come back today to do more work, but as its been raining quiet heavily I don't know if he will rock up with his workers. He's supposed to be cutting some tree's down and thinning out those growing too close together, but we'll see when and if he arrives.

Mia was in a good mood this morning, she woke up tired and wanted her Nana, she loves cuddles from her Nana.

Molly slept on my bed last night, I suppose it was too cold to even sleep on the duvet your mum put down for her.

Well my boy its that time again, time for you to go play and have some more fun with your buddies.

Please Merlin, never forget the love I have for you and I hope you realise just how much I miss you my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good afternoon Merlin my sweet boy.

I'm sorry I'm so late but I had a few things to do today which took all morning, I got home had something to eat and fell asleep, now I feel worse then when I fell asleep.

Its a really nasty day today, cold and raining, its still raining right now. Not a good run and play day my boy, I feel like going back to sleep. All the dogs are indoors sleeping around the house.

I've been struggling to get the right approved oil for my new Chevy, none of the motor accessory stores stock what Chevrolet recommend. To cut a long story short I took my Chevy into the main agent this morning to get the brakes checked and found that they stock the right oil and have done so all along. I could have saved myself a lot of time and money if I had gone there in the first place.

I'm sorry Merlin but my head is very woolly right now and can't really think so I'll close now. God willing we'll talk tomorrow.

Please remember how much I love you my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.
