Birthday Celebrations

Happy Birthday to me,
Happy Birthday to me,
My paint tray is overflowing,
But I've fixed my PC!

Happy birthday to me as today sees my 49th year of being on the planet (some would probably debate that statement but what the hell!). Goodies have rained down on me - a couple of DVDs, some chocolates and some 28mm Sci Fi bits and pieces so I have done pretty well. Best of all though was the happy outcome to the Holly's Appendix episode - the sighs of relief were heard for miles around!

This evening will see the traditional family custom of the birthday persons choice of takeaway for dinner - that will be an Indian then! I am drooling at the prospect of a good Jalfrezi and some Indian lager to wash it down with!

As a further piece of good news I was able to score an extra copy of Risk (with the 18th century figures therein - see the earlier post on this) from ebay for a very good price so the number of figures available has doubled. I just need now to do the same for the Lord of the Rings (and the expansion) and I shall be in business!

Congratulations and Felicitations to you, My Good Sir, you've now reached the point where I believe it is said you stop ageing, and merely 'mature', like a bottle of the finest Port!

Finest Port eh? I would prefer a fine Cognac but appreciate the sentiment just the same! many thanks and here's to the next 49!

Robert (Bob) Cordery said...

Happy Birthday.

May you have many more of them!

All the best,


David Crook said...

Many thanks Bob - the Indian takeaway was very nice and put me in a 'North West Frontier circa 1895' kind of mood - I guess it is the wargaming equivalent of method acting i.e. method eating!

Happy Birthday - and many more!

David Crook said...
