    Happy Fathers Day to one and all! It's your special day to chill out, relax and don't lift a finger, (not applicable obviously to Sir Ben and Lincoln Tiger), pretty much a normal day, like everyday, for some??!!

    Special thoughts also for loved ones no longer with us.

    Just had a text from Dear Daughter.

    I'm to be whisked up the Northumbrian coast to a secret destination for a surprise picnic.



    Lovely day for it.

    Happy Fathers Day to all of you that have successfully put sperm into a lady

    I'm taking Tigresses advice and am starting the day with a glass of scotch (Jura Superstition) and smoking a Cuban cigar (Montecristo Open Regatta)

    ...and relax

    There is literally nothing better than a scotch and Cuban cigar breakfast
    It's my summery Sunday morning treat to myself :emoticon-0103-cool:

    Too right. I'm a bit lobsteresque from an afternoon in the hammock yesterday.


    Slip, slop, slap; that's the Shackleton way.

    ...I'm also listening to jazz (Miles Davis and now Nina Simone)
    Mrs Tash has gone to her Dad's. I offered to go but was told to stay here in the garden with the dogs. So I'm home alone apart from the dogs, the scotch and the cigars.
    Had lovely messages from the kids (and it's the first Fathers Day that I'm a Grandad too)

    Life is pretty much perfect

    Sunday unfortunately is the first day of the working week here. So normal day at work form me. Lifes a bugger sometimes. Have a great day with your cigars and bloody picnics. You lucky bastards. ;)

    You got me thinking about my time in Saudi with that. The weekend used to be Thu and Fri when I was there. A quick google tells me they changed a few years ago to the Fri and Sat weekend to bring them in line with the rest of the middle east.

    As my other half just walked out the door she told me to do the vacuuming, I really need to get her up to speed with British traditions.

    Yep you are correct, it is Friday Saturday for the weekend. I can cause havoc with working with other countries. with 3 days from 7 at opposite weekends. Fri, Sat Sun, no overlap. Works in my favour sometimes.

    No.1 daughter's doing me a Fathers Day BBQ.

    Even bought a new BBQ for the occasion apparently, four gas rings, who needs four gas rings on a BBQ? :emoticon-0112-wonde

    It just gets better

    Mrs Tash arrived back from her Dad's, took one look at me sat in the sun with my cigar and scotch ... rolled her eyes...and then uttered the most beautiful words in the English language...'do you want a fry up then?'
