Fathers competency

Father suffered immensely from ineptitude  ..mother capable beyond explanation  often delegated duties to father ….with six off spring trips to the beach were fraught with many dangers …we were contained in the hill man minx for 45 mins before being allowed access to the foreshore ..father would return sweating and panting …mother with her small derringer  chaperoned us to the individual sandpits ..In turn we each were submerged in sand upto our heads …rendered immobile …The parents could then relax …from his deck chair father would intermittently check his watch for the high tide …glancing up from under his fedora in case a random crab attempted to pull at our ears ….
