Happy Birthday to Gracie!


PS. I don't quite believe it was a surprise to you, mate. Unless maybe that you are in an exceptionally good health - unlike myself :)

Congrats!!! Perfect time to start something new in life you've never done before!!
One thing though, unless you like wearing a parka in September in London, I'm thinking you were at least 59 when the pic was taken, right?!

Above all, remember that someone is old if they are 10 years or more older than you are. The rule applies throughout the whole of life.

I'm sitting here with my first 16 year Lagavulin single Malt Whisky of the evening prior to a Brazilian/Argentinian open-hearth, meat fest restaurant.

Cheers, literally......
