Please forgive personal indulgence!

Today I reached the grand young age of 54

The best part of my birthday – like every day of the year - is to celebrate the fact that Annie and I are together.

Annie told a few of my friends round the world and I got many personal birthday greetings for which I am very grateful.

A couple of the messages are shown on
Simplicity Gallery at this link;

Thank you darling Annie for organising such a great surprise – I love you more than Manchester United and Walkers Crisps!

And thanks again to all who sent greetings – I value it enormously.

Have a great day everyone – the sun is shining in every way!

Trevor--Birthday greetings from across the pond, Vermont. I'll drink a toast to you at my upcoming Independence Day celebration :)
Aren't the 50's the best decade? We get back (some of us do)the instinct and sense we had as children.

Trevor Gay said...

Hi Marilyn and thanks for your best wishes - I can remember the 60's better!

I am an optimist and I have great faith in young people of today so I tend to take off my rose tinted spectacles when looking back.

I think we are living now in a fabulous period of history as we communicate like this through technology and as long as we treat that technology as our slave and not our master I think things can only get better.

Enjoy independence day!!!

Trevor..what I meant was when we reach our 50's life becomes clearer somehow. The 1950's was when we were born and I have to agree the pace of change and all the innovation make today seem brilliant by comparison. I have an incredible amount of faith in the future as well. Today is the only certainty we have, I don't look back often, and I'm grateful to be able to communicate across the globe with people like you!

Trevor Gay said...

Oooops - sorry Marilyn!

Annie pointed it out to me that I had probably misunderstood!!

I must pay more attention!
