Billy the Hood.

And on other beard news today, we have my father this morning in Morrison's.

With Gail in hospital and our home rather full of food and drink, I did not have much to buy today on our weekly shop at Morrison's in Cardiff Bay. So I whizzed around with a trolley, paid for the goods, went to the car and drove to re-fuel.  Because I parked in another car space I went back in the supermarket to see mum or dad, so that we could meet up when mother had finished shopping. Wondering around the store I spotted dad the other side of the check-out. I walked over and we both sat on a bench gossiping until mother finished.

Dad feels the cold and he had the hood of his anorak over his head. This hood did not come down, so after a bit I asked him why it was still up. "It's stuck son" he replied, "I can't unfasten the knot". I giggled, then offered to untie his hood. "But watch the beard, it might hurt!" dad exclaimed. "Don't worry dad" I replied "if I catch you, then you'll yelp and I will stop!". Dad had not fastened his hood in a bow but with a reef knot. I untied his hood and we had a good laugh about it. He is 79 years old and looks so helpless at times, today was one of them.
