10 things about my dad

Just before mum and dad went on holidays, my friend Freya tagged me to play the Facts about the People game. Either (1) post 7 facts about yourself AND photos OR (2) post 10 facts about yourself with no photos, OR (3) post a childhood picture of yourself. Mum already played this a little while back so I am making dad answer the hard questions today. Here are 10 not very exciting facts about my dad:
  1. He was born in the country about three hours drive away from Melbourne, and has lived in the city since he was 17.
  2. He is 259 in dog years.
  3. He lived in Mexico for three months when he was a younger puppy.
  4. Dad's favourite game to play with me is Red Dot.
  5. He builds model railways.
  6. Dad eats more ham than I do.
  7. Dad has always owned cats in his life.
  8. He is a computer nerd and plays games on his giant computer at home (mum and I don't let him near our iMac).
  9. He cannot cook to save his life.
  10. Courtesy of Opy and Benson J Puppypaw's dad, he got to drive race cars really fast this year and he was very excited about it.
Here is a picture of dad from his recent holiday with mum to Broome.

Zim, check out the t-shirt he is wearing! If anyone else would like to play this game, please go ahead.

Great facts about Dad, but he forgot to tell us he loves his special blue slippers:) We would love to see his railroad set.

Woos, the OP Pack

Those were cool facts!

Stella said...

Nice post, Huffle. Your Dad is an interesting guy and you must just be exactly like him (in some ways.)

Where is the Parsley Pot?

Your dad must be an extra wonderful dad if he has always had cats! Cat men rule!

Thanks for your interesting post.

Mickey's Musings said...

Those were neat things about your Dad Huffle :) Good thing he has your Mom if he can't cook,heehee Then he would not be able to eat all that ham ;)

It's always nice to read about the dads out there! Your dad sounds pretty cool.

(angel) Grrreta and Fam said...

When I saw the Cookie Monster slippers, I knew your dad was pretty cool. These ten things make your dad sound even more interesting. It's fun to learn more about your beans.

Percy the Cat said...

Those are cool facts! I don't have a dad, but I should get my mum to play this game!

Suka said...

hey Huffle Mawson,

Your dad sounds very cool! I bet you wish your dad still lived in Mexico (with you and your mum, of course!) as I hear it is always sunny with constant warm sunbeams everywhere!

Nice photo! Looks like your mum and dad vacationed in a very pretty place. Too bad you were not with them! :-<


Parker said...

I think your Dad looks very cool!

Poppy Q said...

That was great learning about your dad. Looks like you had a great holiday. We also think he should have talked about his slippers!!

We do not have a Dad, Huffle, but if we did we bet he could not out-eat Gandalf!

No word on the PP yet?

The Kitty Krew said...

Hi Huffle's Dad! It was nice to learn more about you. We still like the Cookie Monster slippers, too. ;)

Our Mommy already played this game too so doesn't need to play again. It was hard enough to find anything interesting about her the first time around... teehee

We're really expecting an interesting story about the parsley pot now since you keep avoiding answering any of us that ask, Huffle! MOL

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

Broome looks beautiful! Mum hopes we have a posting to Darwin one day so she can really explore the Top End.

Our dad can't cook, either. He called mum four times one night asking how to cook rice.

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

Great to know about your dad!
I get scared of the red dot game.

The Army of Four said...

AWESOME shirt! Do you get to help him with the railways?
Play bows,
PS: We need to work on equalizing the ham situation!

Reese =^..^= said...

That was very interesting! Thanks for sharing all that about your Dad!

Princess Eva and Brice said...

Interesting facts about your dad. But does he SHARE his ham?

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Your dad sounds like a cool guy, but then again, I already knew that since I've jumped on him and all.


The Island Cats said...

Those were some interesting things about your dad...even though you didn't think they were very exciting, Huffle. We like that he has had cats his whole life!

Milo and Alfie said...

We'd like to play this game ~ we'll post on it on Monday. We liked the info about your Dad ~ he sure is old!!!!!
