The Latest Blog Has Arrived
Katie's Dad has been on that PC again reminiscing about our beautiful Katie.
Please have a read and we hope you enjoy this week's joke - it's of the usual standard.
Hello and welcome to my latest blog.
Of the millions of things I miss about Katie one is not being able to tell her things. Often something will happen and for a split second I will go to the pick up the telephone to call her …then I remember.
I really miss not being able to laugh with Katie. No one laughs like Katie did and when we got started there was no stopping us. As we all know Katie’s sense of humour was priceless, be it the jokes played on Alison, the prank phone calls or just telling awful gags there was no doubt that she was a natural.
One thing that worries me is that I will forget, in time, what Katie sounded like or not be able to remember her infectious giggle. We have hours and hours of this on various DVDs but as yet I have not been able to look at these so have to rely on my failing memory.
I can however, recall with complete clarity the noise Katie used to make when slapping her forehead (see photo) after any of my particular poor jokes. The “inflation” joke got that reaction on a regular basis (because the joke was repeated on a regular basis) and my “Busted” gag went down particularly well in W.H. Smiths in Southend I recall.
This is the one when Katie bought a “Busted” CD as they were her favourite band at the time and after paying for I took it back to the counter and said “I want my money back” the assistant asked why and I replied “well, the CD is busted” You did, of course, have to be there and I am delighted to say Katie was!
There was also the time when Kay, our friend and local PCSO, had prepared a wonderful barbeque complete with chicken, sausages, hams etc. Katie whispered in my ear “Do you thing this is a good time to tell Kay I am a vegetarian!” Of course I thought this was a great plan and Kay, bless her, did fall for it. As usual Katie’s giggling let her down though!
Anyway, here is this week’s joke that I am sure Katie would approve of. When asked about what my girlfriend did for a living I replied, “Well, it’s hard to say really” and then added, “She sells seashells on the seashore.”
Until next time.
