For anyone who knows this fellow, you will know what I mean when I say he is NOT your average Joe Bloggs.
One of my earliest memories of him was before he could even speak, sitting up in the highchair using his good keen eyes and pointing out flies on the ceiling for his dad to swat. A hunter from the start.
And once he found his voice, again from the stage of the highchair, when he should have been eating dinner, he would entertain the captive audience around the table with jokes - laughing so much while he did it that he could barely spit out the punch line. A comedian from the tender age of two!
Fast forward a few years and you've grown into a fine young man with a sparkle in your eye and a dimple in your cheek. I am proud of you - my one and only nephew.
Go well and go safely on your life's adventures Matheson, and remember to come back and tell us all about it, we will be waiting to be entertained!
PS If you are wondering what the secret is to his wholesome healthy look - take note youngsters, it is simply because he eats his vegetables plus gets up with the sunrise and goes to bed when it gets dark. Actually, that last part is not true but he assures me it is part of the plan for the near future, we will see . . .
