Vox Hunt: Happy Father’s Day June 16, 2008

Show us a picture of your father.

He was pretty fancy my father. My mother tells me he was probably one of the first people in australia to wear suede shoes. When he arrived in the small country town where she lived in the early 1950's no one would have dared wear suede shoes for fear of being considered gay.

He was on a world trip and stopped to visit people he knew and he ended up staying. Don't think he was totally happy with that decision in the end. He's always had a yearning to go back to Guernsey.

    Wow, suede shoes can get you labeled as gay? I had no idea.

    I was wondering what the Father thing was – fathers day is at a different time!

  5. What lovely smiley eyes! I don't think I have any digital photos of my dad. Will have to get some scanned.

    He looks like a stylin' guy with quite a sense of humor. Your parents are both really good-looking!

    he does have a good sense of humour. And this was when he was quite young, before he became a grumpy old man.

    yeah – they would have been a bit of a glam couple back then. When they went out they always dressed up. Mum did curlers, serious suspension underwear, proper stockings. Was fun watching her get ready.
