Slip in a quickie

Careful now.

It’s been a great Father’s Day. We skyped my Dad, we did lunch, I sat on the couch and watched the World Cup all afternoon with a beer and a beagle for company.

I hope your day was equally good.

And, because I’m about to enjoy Brazil v Switzerland, here’s a quick quota photo to fill up the gap between yesterday and tomorrow.

Ethereal background, striking, but weird red and white post thing, perfectly positioned crescent moon. Not much to dislike here.

And now, football.

Thanks Jamie

Memory Monday

Well, there’s Flashback Friday [is there? – Ed.] and Throwback Thursday, so why not Memory Monday?

Easy way to slip a quota photo in while I’m out hunting swimming with dolphins in the Indian Ocean. And since I’m writing this on Father’s Day (dolphins having comprehensively failed to invent wifi yet), here’s one of of my dad.

A belated Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.

Flood Fun

Once the near Biblical weather of last night had subsided, I was taken for a ride, literally, by my boy.

Many of the paths around Tokai Forest were similarly waterlogged, and we spent a couple of hours riding through them and getting thoroughly wet.

It was a good way to spend a Father’s Day afternoon, but the hot shower afterwards was much needed.

My Favourite Superhero

On Father’s Day, what better than this set of… erm… photo-drawings from Italian… erm… photo-drawer Giulia Pex?

She took photos of her dad doing mundane tasks and then jazzed them up because her dad is her favourite superhero.

Even at age [quite old] my Dad can regularly still be found on the roof (although not if he remembers to take his medication). I’ve never seen him opt for the pose above though: he’d probably be painting the chimney.

Anyway, this goes out to my Dad and any other father’s out there who are their kids’ favourite superheroes.

Happy Father’s Day.

An experiment…

With Father’s Day approaching, I’m going to file this one under “Blog posts?, Do my family read my”.

This popped up on my Pulse this morning.

AR.Drone 2.0: An Awesome, High-Flying Father’s Day Gift [REVIEW]

     

Says Lance Ulanoff:

The Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 is expensive ($299) and can only fly for 15 minutes on a charge, but it’s still a leading contender for the best Father’s Day gift you might ever buy.

When I tried out the new AR.Drone earlier this year, I sensed its entertainment value, but it wasn’t until I brought it home and took it for a bunch of real test flights that I discovered the compelling nature of this remote-control flying and HD video-recording entertainment device. It’s best described as your own personal spy drone.

His full review is honest and interesting and anyone reading it would be sure to buy their Dad a Parrot AR.Drone 2.0, even if it did cost R2,500. (Eina.)

So, aside from flying your own personal spy drone, what are your plans for the weekend?
