Fathers Day!
All the fathers I could find photos of ...all of these bar one are the direct ancestors of Melissa and or two were a bit racy but in the whole were decent and luckily for us all kind people...Luckily I have been told the stories of all of these people and one day will get it all down...but am off to the airport to pick up my sister who is flying down from Brisbane as I type this.
