Flying with Frank

Hello Everyone! 

Rahul asked me to post a photo of my stepdad. At first I was reluctant to do so…
However, I changed my mind as I want to show how amazing and quirky he really was.

This shot was taken when I was 17. We were about to go out and he said, “We don’t need to drive, we can fly!”
This is an example of the fun crazy things he did… So we spread our arms and pretended to fly! 

Note the stubby shorts and beer in his hands. We were getting ready to go to a BBQ. Beer and barbecues go hand in hand in Australia, especially in a country town where we were living at the time.

Thank you to everyone for all the well wishes. 

Will get back to blogging soon.

Hugs to you all….Paula xxxx
