The funny sayings, mannerisms and other idiosyncracies
of our dear old Dad, Kerr Kirkwood (1927-2007).

Here's a couple I've found myself saying recently:
"Untouched by human hand!" - said proudly when actually to touch the object in question with your hands wouldn't matter at all.
"Come here, you wee bugger!" - said to entice a ball from under a rather low bush often while thrashing at it furiously with a tennis racquet. I came out with this one involuntarily during a game of soccer in the garden with Bertie.
Pic of the day: We've had TV footage, archive audio and letters - and now it's time for the medium of the stage. We went to see Goodnight Mister Tom (a WW2 evacuee drama) in Leeds last weekend. When reading the reviews afterwards I saw this pic of Mr Tom. His quizzical expression in particular reminds me of Pa.
