42 years...



Mrs Scroblene and I have been married (to each other of course, don't you know), for forty-two years today!

It's quite an enigmatic number isn't it, 'forty-two'. I mean, there was a great show called '42nd Street', Rowan Atkinson did a sketch where his North East football club were losing thirty-seven - er - nil, so you can add five to that, I mentioned this fact three years ago, when we were celebrating thirty-nine years, so that's another huge fact to ponder, and so the list goes on...

and on...

and on...

It was The Mermaid afterwards, and plenty more after all that...


We're going to my Formation Drinking Establishment for lunch, just to recall that all those years ago, my best man, Bob, picked me up at my old home just a few yards down the road, and whisked me off to Rye Church for the big event! They also do a super fish and chips for pensioners, so romance is definitely alive and kicking!

It certainly is. It's the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything.

Except that "Deep Thought" got it wrong . . .

Happy anniversary from the home for the bewildered!

42....to be emulated I hope. I wish you both many more happy years together.

Belated congratulations to you both. We are merely beginners, having celebrated our 28th in August - notable only for the fact that our lunch was paid for by my little brother (who has 44 on the clock so far!) at a delightful little hostelry on the outskirts of Guildford.

Congrats Scrobs and Mrs. S!

Yes, I was thinking that, Mr H...

Somehow it has all sorts of meanings, but for the life of me, I can't find out what they are!

Scrobs... said...

Bewildered, my foot - may I call you 'The'?

It's a damn nice home!

Scrobs... said...

Thank you, Thud, and I hope you'll do the same as well!

Scrobs... said...

Thank you, Reevers!

Some pubs around Guildford are pretty good, so I'm glad the Surrey countryside was to your taste!!

Scrobs... said...

Tuscs - thank you! And how the devil are you?

Just to mention that we are STILL on the case I sent you...

Some things never give up!
