Getting back to that Chinese looking bloke here's how it all happened. Mum mentioned the competition to Dad, who, by the way, doesn't show all that much interest in my blog. Mum had a few ideas and was heading off to look for props. Dad decided, as he had the day off from work, to join her. They went to St Vinnie's and were wandering around when Dad, from across the opposite side of the store, yelled out to Mum ....... 'I've got it'. Mum and everyone else in the store turned to look at Dad who was standing holding up the China-man's outfit. Mum was sooooooooooooo embarrassed. Dad was looking so pleased with himself. It was $8 but they had a half price off day so it only cost $4. Now they wanted a hat to go with it. Mum spotted the hat in a big box of baskets (50cents). Well it's not a hat really but she thought it would do and it did. Put a bit of red cord in it for the neck tie and they had the China-man outfit complete. How good was that? Dad was so pleased with himself. He even helped with the photo shoot and when it came time to vote Mum had a hard time stopping him from voting. Who do you think he wanted to vote for?? Yeah ..... you got it!! ME ..... he wanted to vote for ME!!!! Crikey ....... that's not what it's all about, aye?? Mum wouldn't let him, thank goodness. He's an awful embarrassment my Dad. BUT I do love him!!!!!! Here's how the photo shoot went ......
