Apparently some American jokers have suggested that it shows the year when a British man finally wins Wimbledon! grin wink

I just spent a small fortune on a gorgeous Zenga striped shirt for my Dads 90th birthday present, now he will have something nice to wear at his surprise party. He may only get to wear it a few times as he doesn't really go any where to wear things like that, but he's worth it , and he's going to love it!!!

My Dad may be a retired coal miner, but he knows his designer duds. (no idea how!) grin

August 11th MM, thanks for asking. kiss



Coal Miner since age of 15, worked in horrendous conditions 7 days a week when we were kinds, choking dust, deafening noises, couldn't even stand up straight when he was down the pit, and he says the worst part was all the rats that were around and would eat anything if you left a crack for them to get into. Grosssssslipsrsealed. His eyes are shot from drilling with no eye protection, he gets black lung disability allowance.

He's a big grumpy but an amazing man, with the help of my sisters he still lives alone in the house I grew up in.

This is going to be an emotional trip! I leave on the 4th to spend time with him and help with the preparations, 3 parties in total!

His take on Genesis in 1974...'Bloody rubbish and they will never last' He also said the same about Rod Stewart. grin

Your dad is a very lucky man to have such a great daughter. I can feel the love, respect, and admiration jumping out from this post as well as the one about his coal mining days. I know he's a great dad, just by knowing you. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree!

As a proud father myself, it warms my heart to read your posts about your dad. Enjoy the party, and your time with him. I know you will, and I can guarantee he'll love the shirt, and having you there with him. Make sure to take plenty of pics. The ones from when he visited you in Miami were great, and I'm looking forward to seeing ones from this trip.
