Well done Melanie, looks like a great book. Treasure every moment with your Dad they don't make many like him. My father lived to be just short of 102 and the picture of your Dad has the same twinkle in his eyes as my father had. Dad laid a new wooden kitchen floor at 99 having dragged to laminate several miles on his shopping trolley!!! Jim and Abe would have made a great pair!!
Enjoy every moment.
