Well I just uploaded over a hundred pictures off my dads digital camera I bought him for his retirement present....he got to use it when his son in England surprised him with a trip to Brazil and I just thought I'd share some of them.

I'm so sorry to all the dial up people, I used to have dial up too...

It was a HUGE surprise Diane.....They went from England to Paris and my brother Pete said to dad this isn't your surprise, we're only here to catch a flight to Brazil to the Copocabana Beach in Rio.... shk Nice present for someone who's worked 60 years of his life!

He'd tell you he isn't too bad for an old fart..... laugh I'm not kidding, that is what he'd say.

This is Dad at Blackpool Pleasure Beach in England....it's an amusement park.

Grandad and Nana are in their mid 80's....Dad's closer to Nanas age than moms! laugh Mom and Dad are 13 years apart and Nana highly disapproved of Dad at first.

I feel so bad for my Grandad....he's in bad health and can't garden anymore. Nana said he'll sit out there in the greenhouse for hours but he just can't physically do the gardening anymore.

More mom

loz - I'm really enjoying your pictures!
Thanks so much for sharing them with us! kissies

Your parents both look great, and it's nice to cyber meet your brother!
What a terrific thing for your brother to do for your dad - I'm sure they made many wonderful memories together.

Beautiful pictures, Laura!

It's too bad that he can't do much of the gardening anymore. Is there someone that could help him?

He's on oxygen now(he never smoked), and he can't walk much. My uncle hired a gardener to come once a week though. I can't imagine being a gardener and then not being able to garden one day.

And thank you....it's been fun sharing the pics with you all.

It's always great to see another country that you know you'll never get to visit. thumbup

Lisa, Blackpool was my fav. place as a kid. Dad would take us there on mystery trips. Do you remember the Funhouse that burnt down? I used to love it in there.

This is the house we grew up in...the one with the white door. The back yard is only 3 times as big as the front yard. Dad said they are selling for 200,000 pounds now!!!! That's ridiculous!

Beautiful. I love that picture above the house one.

From the looks of it, you would never guess there was a yard in back of that house.
