I did try to reply Becks. Quite a long effort which I enjoyed writing. I got to a point where I couldn't remember Doberman's name so I Googled Bilko. In the process the post vanished.
And I'm too tired now to try doing it again which I couldn't anyway.
I will agree that your Dad was a no nonsense sort of bloke though. And I'm sure you are a perfectly well adjusted young woman and your pot throwing is a mere minor aspect of your character which can be easily avoided by not getting you mad.
