Marcia is the boss of course....

But the real winners were the kids.

And all it cost me was a close shave...

It's alright, it'll grow back.

As Megan has reminded me, it is a Mohawk.

Admit it Megan, I looked the part ever so briefly.




I just love it when the kids come to visit.

  2. 10cc had a song called "The things we do for love" I think you should turn your talents to writing a song called "The things we do for the love of a good woman" And I do think she looks and seems like a good woman.
    And a belated happy birthday. I've just had mine.

  3. At our age, Birthdays aren't for us anymore as much as they are for the kids.

    1. Forgot to mention that I am always in awe of good people like yourself who have the time and energy to bring up and nurture so many children like you have. If you do ever come this way I will definitely get the drinks in. And you are right about the birthdays.

    1. Good! I am glad you enjoyed the videos, with the kids I had such fun making them. The sad part is they will all have to go home.

    1. For my next trick, I was thinking of growing a Margaret Thatcher Memorial Hairstyle just so you can enjoy seeing her getting her head shaved...

    2. You are a dead ringer for Denis Thatcher by the way. In the marital bed he would often suggest "Is the lady for turning?" And Margaret would moan "Oh Willie Whitelaw! Impeach me!"

    1. Dyed in one of the flourescent paints they cover RNLI lifeboats perhaps!

  12. Sometimes when you talk about things you have to go through in your every day life, I wonder why you stay in Angola. Now that I've seen your wonderful family I know. You are truly a fortunate man.

  13. The people i've seen sporting Mohawks never laughed, and you looked way too happy. I'm sure the kids are looking forward to when they can give you your next hair style.

    1. Hair Megan, it is the gift that keeps on giving. Mind you, mine is starting to get a bit thin on top...

    1. Soft, Marcia has her hands full, thank you for pointing out that I am a fat old bastard. I am going to do something about it. Honest.

  15. I don't have the wherewithal for a "mohawk" - mine would be more of a "mo".

    That said, it is indeed time that I shaved off my winter growth*.

    * Hair, not mushrooms or fungus.

  17. i enjoyed that but If you grow another one try to make sure it's centred. I guess I have a thing for symmetry as thats the frist thing I thought when I saw it! I like to think I'll grow old disgracefully!

    1. Spoken like a true craftsman! Obviously Marcia operates to the same standards which is why she made me shave it off.

Please feel free to comment, good or bad. I will allow anything that isn't truly offensive to any other commentator. Me? You can slag me without mercy but try and be witty while you are about it.
