Dad in a Hat

Dad - suitably be-hatted

Dad - suitably be-hatted

Dad in a Hat

Pleased as punch and ramrod straight
With present, bought by reprobate
The son who’s nearly always late
No “proper” job, his hair a state
But brings a smile to Father’s eyes
When finally, after several tries
He finds a prezzie he adores
So, much, he actually went and wore
The thing, as we stepped out for lunch
It’s funny, but I had a hunch, that
Being as the old one’s tat
It’s just the job –
Dad in a hat!

  2. Great photo of your dad!He looks so proud of his gift, and his son…Reminds me of the Italian gentlemen I used to see when I lived in Bologna. He just has a …. European face about him….please don’t tell me he lives in Brooklyn or something….

  3. Thank you, Psyche! -and nice to see you again. Let me wish you a Merry Christmas in fact from us to you and yours.

    My Dad would love it that you thought he was from Brooklyn, haha! no- he’s Derbyshire born and bred, and the nearest thing he gets to Italian is a microwave pizza 🙂
