Happy Father’s Day!

Well, folks, it’s Father’s Day in this here neck of the woods (and possibly in other necks of the woods, too, only I wouldn’t know about that), and as I managed to completely embarrass my mum with that photo of us and the monkies, on Mother’s Day this year, I thought it was only fair to embarrass my dad, too. I’m all heart, me.

So, without further ado, Forever Amber Enterprises is proud to present one of my other favourite photos of all time:


This was taken during a trip to Edinburgh Zoo back when I, as you can see, was but a tiny wee person. Unfortunately history does not record what was in those sandwiches that made us look so shocked, but I guess we got off pretty lightly, whatever it was, because if you look carefully, almost all of the people in the background are lying down dead.

It would be uncharitable to suggest that my mum, who hates cooking, must have made the sandwiches, but to be honest, she probably did. (But mum, your dinner last night was lovely, honest.)

So, there you have it: number 2 in an occasional series of "embarrassing pictures of me and my parents". Coming soon: the one where my dad has his head in a plastic tube. And no, I’m not even joking.

Happy Father’s Day, dad 🙂

P.S. I write a weekly diary which goes out every Friday to my subscribers. Sign up below to get on the list...

    I love the old photos Amb. Please make this series not too occasional.

  • That is so cute!!

    I have one of my dad, from last year, no less, wearing a plastic chicken head.

    I kid you not.

    Does that trump your dad in a plastic tube?
