Thanks you all
Had most of the family here yesterday for a pot luck lunch
Was asked what I would like for my birthday so tolled them that another 20 or so yrs would be fine as long as I still feel as young as I do on my third 30th birthday :lol: :lol:

Happy Birthday, Doug, you old scoundrel!..... :lol: ...!
I see from the photo, that you had a wonderful time with all the family!
A grand get-together!
I'm catching up on you now, at 88-1/2 years... and still riding my trusty motorcycles around the Herefordshire countryside every day...
..together with daily preparing and cooking lots of good stuff to eat!
...and a houseful of toys to play with!.... :rockon: ...!
It's a happy frame of mind that keeps us going!.... :wink2: ....!
Take care, Doug!
Paul...from England...(The Land of the Anglo-Saxons, in a Northern Hemispherical Time Zone!)... :D ...!

Wishing you the best of birthdays!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!

I was preparing to send you blow up stewardess doll dressed in Air New Zealand stewardess uniform but when I packed the gift into mail parcel box to be shipped to you from USA, the doll suddenly developed so severe stomach gas problem that it quickly flew out of the window before I had chance to close the gift box.

Sorry but hey at least my thoughts count. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU :groupwave: :groupwave: :groupwave: :groupwave:
