Me and my dear old Dad

My Dad just emailed me this photo of us. This is what we looked like 32 years ago (I'm sure I didn't always look like a complete loon). Little did he know then that all these years later that he would be helping out his daughter with her business making lamps and posting them all over the world.  It's funny, all my life I have watched my Dad post parcels all over the world. He collected and sold records, rock and roll and jazz mainly, and he is the KING of parcel wrapping. Neat, crisp, brown paper packages with the neatest handwriting, FRAGILE written in big red capitals and all complete with a blue air mail sticker. If you ever buy a lamp and get a parcel fitting this description (and with possibly too much parcel tape...how DARE I criticise the King himself) then the chances are it was wrapped on a Thursday by my dear old Dad!
