I gave this card to my dad yesterday.I thought it was rather nice.
In the end we all clubbed together and gave him...
My Dad, you see, is a lifelong Arsenal supporter. Since he was a young lad he has followed the club's fortunes.
Not only that, over the years, he has put pen to paper and posted off his thoughts to various Arsenal managers, if he has felt that the players, 'could do better'. LOL! ;-)Well, one such letter, which my dad wrote to a past Arsenal manager ( Bertie Mee) , received such a wonderful reply...it went something like this....
Many thanks for your thoughts.
However, having just won one of the most difficult leagues in the footballing world... AND the F.A. cup......... etc etc!!'
My dad showed us this letter recently and how we laughed! This was the year that Arsenal had won what is known as 'The Double' ! (The League and the Cup)!
But that's not all!! Back to my dad's birthday ! He then had to 'tackle' this somewhat larger gift...
And here's my DH looking on (excitedly maybe... as it is his birthday on Friday ! )
When I was a child, the one thing that we loved to play with was my dad's old Bagatelle.
