There's not much to smile about, but now that I've got used to it I have to admit that the tales my Dad comes up with at times make me smile now and then. Apparently - He was in the Navy for eight years and during that time went to America, walked along the Great Wall of China, went to Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Iceland, Norway and the bridge over the River Kwai! When our family name was changed in the late 1800's (this is true) he was with the gentleman on the trip to London. Which makes Dad about 220 years old! Apparently the Sikh gentleman he chats to sometimes when he passes by is going away to Bombay for a few weeks and has said Dad can go with him! I wondered if anyone else had similar exeriences? These days we just nod and say "oh that's nice" or something like that because Dad turns agressive if you point out he's talking nonsense! "I know what I'm talking about!"
