Hi ladies~~~

Well i am back from an AWESOME week in Japan~~~

whilst sitting in the lounge waiting for my flight home yesterday, i was reading the Melbourne paper...
"The Herald Sun"....

& to my HUGE SURPRISE my AWESOME 88 yo dad was featured on the 13th?? page...

I got such a SHOCK....!!

DAD didn't tell me he was going to be in the news..../paper...

AHH!!~~ my phone was flat & I couldn't ring anyone....

SOO my 88 yo dad (whose knee had been broken etc re previous posts)...

IS BACK fighting FIT & well & swimming...

So this news article is for him being the ELDEST competitor in the upcoming "PIER TO PUB" swim...
THE world's LARGEST ocean swim..

This is DAD's 10th consecutive swim....
(he has been featured before on the front page of "THE AGE" newspaper back in 2009)...

Saw your Dad on the Perth television news the other night, commented to my hubby about him, and what a great inspiration he is for his age. Very rarely check out Blogs, but as you are one of my favourite sellers on eBay I thought I would check out your Blog. Was amazed to see it was YOUR father....obviously unforgettable! Sue
