My Dad’s Adventure in Cyber Space…

Hope you all had a great Easter break.  Ours has been quiet, we’ve had a day at Birdland, a day at the Zoo and a meal at my parents.

Now, during the meal, my Dad announced how he would love to eat at Marco Pierre White’s restaurant again.  This may make is sound as though it’s something he does often.  But, in all his 77 years, he’s eaten there once.  A few years ago, my parents and Rog and I went to Lavenham for the weekend and ate at The Angel.  it was, I have to say, the best meal I’ve ever had, and a great weekend.  And, my Dad has talked about nothing else since.   One of his idols is Marco.  But, seeing as his other idol is the Crowman from Worzel Gummidge, that doesn’t say much…

So, whilst we were eating our dinner on Easter Sunday, my father did one of his ‘faces’ – the one that says ‘I’m hungry/I am getting older/I may never get to eat at such a place again…’  So I said that, should I sell 2000 books, I will take him back to Marco’s and will pay for accommodation over night too (for the four of us).  Now, as I’m only just approaching 1000 books, I guessed this would give me a while to save up…

However, the following day, Dad came down to visit and our daughter had made one of those signs you see on Facebook which My father held with a rather dopey look on his face.  And, since I posted it, I’ve had messages from around the world to say they’ve seen Dad in the photo – American, Italy, New Zealand, Czech Republic…  My Dad’s response? ‘Wow, that’s not natural is it, me being in New Zealand when I haven’t got on a plane…’

So, for those that missed it, here’s my Dad’s photo… Let’s keep our fingers crossed he doesn’t now get himself a Facebook account!  And, although I’m going to have to save lots of pennies, it will be money very well spent.
