It's my oldest son's birthday today. This is his birthday card, based on a drawing he did of our neighbour's cows when he was small; I didn't date it, so I've no idea how old he was at the time.
Kimbo has always been the nearest thing to the perfect son. He performed well at school, never caused us anguish, travelled throughout the world without phoning home for cash, gained his degree in Oxford, speaks French, he bowls and bats well (cricket), and has never been unemployed. He is also married, and has two lovely boys.
He has a wonderful sense of humour, and when we're together there's never a dull moment.... He's also an uncompromising gourmet, which suits me fine.
I miss you terribly
you know how it is,
for when we're apart
it's such a rotten swiz.
Happy birthday darling. Papa xxx
Oh, Happy Birthday to your son. What a great gift his has been to you -- and I suspect many, many others.ReplyDelete
very sweet x
Happy Birthday Kimbo!ReplyDelete
Good kids...we are so blessed, aren't we Cro?
I certainly have been. 3 out of 3's not bad!Delete
Loved the drawing...it's a classic! And so is the apparent love of a father for his excellant son. Never hear the word "swiz". But understand the meaning exactly.Delete
Happy birthday to Kimbo!
And your other kids aren't going to be jealous if they read this post?ReplyDelete
Cute card Cro and a sweet sentiment.
No. Luckily they all know that I adore them. I tell them as much quite often!Delete
Happy Birthday to Cro's dear boy. He sounds like a wonderful guy!ReplyDelete
You and the Lady M are truly blessed. Shows how well you raised your family, and what it takes to raise a wonderful family.ReplyDelete
Tell your son, Happy Birthday, and all of its blessings.
Have a wonderful weekend, Mr and Lady M.
Happy Birthday to Kimbo...his cow drawing made me smile... (we need to talk about the full-length film)ReplyDelete
This made me smile! I agree with deminflyz.ReplyDelete
Happy belated birthday to your dear son..sometimes you just wonder at the amazing people that we were blessed to have as children...ReplyDelete
Happy Birthday Kimbo from me too.ReplyDelete

How fortunate to have such a good son. I am sure you and Lady had something to do with that. Nice post.ReplyDelete

Such a moving words for a father to write about a son! You are blessed. But it did not happen without you.ReplyDelete
