Regrets

My father is getting older. Ok so that is called stating the bl@@ding obvious.

I notice that he doesn't walk as well lately, on Saturday a walk he did last year was much more of a struggle. He says that it is not so much his legs as his back - I think that caring for Mum hurt his back. Of course I came home from work to note that my head gardener (Dad) had cut my front grass! Incorrigible!!

You may have noticed that I often pop a few pics of the old boy in my blog. There are a few reasons, one I enjoy taking photos and I don't often get the chance to take pictures of people and also because I guess that its for the memories.

I do regret not getting into photography earlier as I have few photos on here of Mum (and none that are good). I know there are a sackful at Dads and one day I will snaffle some and get them scanned.

For now...
