Went the day well....


An ordinary deck of cards....


....and a typical calendar....

Bear with me on this - a typical deck of cards contains 52 excluding the jokers. A typical calendar has 52 weeks in it. There is a theme here.

The theme is 52.

That coincides with my age as today is my 52nd birthday.

'Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,
I'm singing about myself....

....Cos today I'm 52!'

I probably say this every year but I still feel like an 18 year old but sadly SWMBO won't let me have one (not that I could catch one in any event!). Prezzie details to follow when I have them and I have a sneaking suspicion that my old friend Lawrence will feature in some form or another....;-)

Oh, and the traditional birthday Indian meal - Lamb Jalfrezi here I come!

Congrats, David.
I have to say, you don't look a day over 50. ;Op```

Personally I stopped acknowledging birthdays about a decade ago -- I mean, if you don't count them, you don't age, right?

Regards,
John

Hi John,

As I mentioned, I still feel like an 18 year old but the body often reminds me otherwise! I will try the technique you suggest - failing that I better put a portrait in the man cave double quickly!

All the best,

DC

Hi Bob,

Many thanks Bob - today has been pretty good for a number of reasons and I have just enjoyed a very nice Indian takeaway.

All is well and the prezzies are perfect!

Happy Birthday. So was that 18 yr old something from the Highlands? The lamb sounds good!

El Grego said...

Happy birthday - try to not use the entire week-end for the celebration (and recovery!)...

David Crook said...

Hi Ross,

Not sure about the origin of the 18 year old - I was not able to catch her!

The lamb was delicious - with a couple of cold ones to wash it down....;-)

All the best,

DC

All the best,
