Forty years ago today!
« on: August 17, 2010, 08:04:20 PM »
Forty years ago today, I went down to the pub that my friend Geoff used. I didn't like it much, as it was used by some pretty shady characters, but a lot of his mates drank there, so he kept going. He'd just returned from a trip to France, where he'd met a young lady and they were something of an item. So much so that the previous time we'd been in the pub I felt a bit of a gooseberry, so I'd jokingly said "Ask her if she's got any mates she can bring down so we can chat while you canoodle".

Imagine my surprise when I walked in the pub, and there they were with another young lady. We got chatting, found out we had a lot in common, and spent the next 35 years together.

So August 17th is a very important day for me.

Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity

Wow......I have a lump in my throat now

Keep this day special by thinking of all the fantastic memories those 35 years have given you.

It's not where you have been that's important.....it's where you are going!
