This is a question Dad stories

"Do anything good for your birthday?" one of your friendly B3TA moderator team asked in one of those father/son phone calls that last two minutes. "Yep," he said, "Your mum." Tell us about dads, lack of dad and being a dad.

My Dad was an enigma
Or just barking, I was never sure. He started a Charity, (which I now run) because he had a genuine love of people. Then he spent the next 20 years being rude to them. He was awarded the MBE for his work, but declined picking it up from the Palace because he was 'too busy'. Elton John dropped in unannounced for some event and Dad asked who he was, to his face. George Micheal was told 'You'll have to hurry, I have a meeting in 10 minutes' when he visited.
At events, he would usually give a speech, go red at the applause then head for the kitchen to help with the washing up.
He died last year, from the big C in terrible pain. But his last words still make me smile. The Morphine in the Hospice had taken away the man i knew, he hadn't spoken in a few days. But he came back for just one second.
I said to him: 'Dad, the doctor is here'
And he replied:
'I can see that, you bloody fool'
He died that afternoon.
