Sigh & Low

25 Jun

Please get groundnuts for my friend. She sits at the window and pleads for food.

~A text Dad sent Mum today.

I have a precious, unique disadvantage.One that I would never trade. With a father this gentle, all other men seem like brutes. 😦

The friend, by the way, is a parrot.

    Hey, just got here on to your blog once again from Nino’s Mum’s. I like your dad. Does the parrot live with him? And with a dad like that, all men are brutes πŸ™‚
