For a while now there's been a bit of unspoken rivalry between my Dad and me. I think it first started when he got a mention in Column 8. Then I appeared in our local paper (not hard to do) a number of times then he graced the cover of the Mosman Daily, I got a gig on local radio, he appeared on the front page of the Herald and so on.
Then last week I got a mention on NQN's fabulous blog because I gave her a bottle of bum hummers (with 1000 farts in a jar, truly the gift that keeps giving).
Then after writing about our delicious lunch at Bells for dad's birthday, the chef Stefano Manfredi tweeted about my blog. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
But then Dad was voted Mosman Citizen of the year.
Congratulations Dad.

Becoming Junee citizen of the year would in every way trump that. Is that book about your Dad? Look at the picture!

That's one of the reasons why I bought it for him. The other is that the book grandfather dances and my dad is known as a mover on the dance floor (and quite a tap dancer in his youth).

Hehe you are too funny Kristy! It is truly the gift that keeps on giving (and one with special powers too in cases of emergency). Congratulations on being Retweeted by Stefano Manfredi and to your dad too! :D
