So did he talk about where he travelled as a sea man?

No ... strangely enough. He was a very quiet person. And I think I've inherited that from him 'cause people say 'You're so easy going and so quiet.' He'd be whistling away, you'd hear him coming up whistling away or singing. And ... loves his newspaper, so he's sitting in the rocking chair reading away. And then my little job, which I loved when daddy was home was to go and get the ice, cause we didn't have fridge and freezers at that time. So you'd go to get the ice and bring it home and then my mum would make my father's drinks. So I enjoyed that.
