Oh I loved this one.... This brought back memories of me - a man struggling to put 'Bobbles' in my daughters lovely fine blonde hair. Trying to get the 'twist' right and her little breathless giggles at twenty attempts! Just wonderful.... Rogerx.

I think your daughter is a fortunate young lady. Having a loving father will hopefully set a standard for her that will lead her to a loving husband. My wife and I rejoiced when our daughter married a super young man. Want to see any pictures of the grandkids?
