Intelligent question and reversing a car

1. "Can I ask an intelligent question?" Dad would ask before posing a query which would result in an answer he actually knew and everyone would disagree with.

2. When anyone was reversing out of the drive Dad would stand in the middle of the road pretending to halt the [non-existant] traffic with one hand and beckoning the driver with the other - as I do with the mother-in-law when she leaves after Sunday supper. Dad must have been a frustrated traffic cop, I think.

Pic of the day: The happy twins, hands firmly clasped.



  1. Just to embellish No. 1, he usually held up his hand and made sure that everyone was listening before posing said "intelligent question". Good one

  2. Just described Aunt Ada as "looking like a Thunderbirds puppet" in conversation with Beck.

  3. It's true! why have we never noticed this before!! only problem is that I'm going to end up looking like that myself as I was always told how much I looked like Ada.
