1947 was a good year...



This is the day when the Senora O'Blene and I adjourn to the pub to celebrate Scrobs' big day...

The Great house at a village not far from here...

Thanks to the 71 place in Ilfracombe, I can post a nice picture of the actual age of your correspondent!

(Ilfracombe is a rather genteel place, known for its caves and tunnels - a bit like our garden in all this heat)!

Blast! I thought it was imminent and if I'd known the actual date I'd have sent you a card. This will have to do instead.

"Well I am damned. You're now 71?
My God. I just cannot believe it!
No card was sent. You were having me on
That's why you didn't receive it.

Now that I know you are older than me,
You know what's the best thing to do?
Have a bloody good time on the whisky and wine
And a merry birthday to you."

Thank you Thud! It's been a great day too! Lots of folk and family chats as well!

Goosey, Think nothing of it, you send cards all the time, and a poem by you for all to see is a super present!

Fabulous day!

Like the kissing bit at the end, that could take some beating...;0)

Sorry mate. Late to the party. Blame it on those geographers who insisted on placing the Greenwhich time line so far behind half the rest of the world. Anyway, a belated hbty.
