18 today!

'No hair, no teeth, dribbles a lot. Mind you, so does his baby.'

So said my old gran, on the day my son was born.

A fast learner (here he is, at the wheel of his first car), the years whizzed past as my son grew into an amazing young man. He's got his mother's good looks, and her brains, so he can look forward to a bright future.

Happy 18th Birthday, Bill.  


Thank you for being the kind of son who gives me every excuse to say 'I are a proud dad.'

We may have done some raising, but he's done the the heavy lifting by himself :)

Happy birthday for your son, and warm prideful parental glows to you and the Missus and sisterly ones for your girls.

Hope you all have a great day
