My dad is pretty handy in the kitchen too, like Frank he cooks himself a breakfast every morning, gets his own lunch, gets mum some toast or cereal for her breakfast and make all their tea and coffee.
I have known him, in the past, to cook a roast, with yorkshire puds. I think it may have something to do with his upbringing, if they wanted a dinner, they had to go and catch it first!
He has always washed his own underwear, wouldnt dream of letting us women do that, thats private stuff! He can sew and knit, he taught me.
I think a combination of sport and Navy training have a bit to do with. For almost 91 he's pretty remarkable, oh, and he has very acute hearing and is still on the ball with everything, including his ipad he had for Christmas last year.
He is definitely far from stupid.
