Chris is a bit of a looker if you ask me ….. he's definitely a keeper. I have a Chris as you have a Chris ….. mine's a keeper too. Hope that you both had a wonderful day. XXXX

I can see you made every effort to ensure your handsome professor had a memorable Birthday celebration - the last Birthday Chris will celebrate as a bachelor I might add. You are a very sweet & romantic minded man John Grey, to plan such a lovely day filled with all the things Chris enjoys so much.
Many happy returns dear Chris! What a lovely day, the colors are amazing....hugs to you both.
Happy Birthday Chris, and congratulations on landing such a top-notch partner. I've always found the notion of a true English-style tea a bit intimidating, but I think I'd quite enjoy it in your company!

So did you take Chris to afternoon tea with you? Nah just joking. Sounds like a brilliant day.
Looks like a lovely day to celebrate a birthday. Well done, you!
Why do you only frequent our neck of the woods when we vacate it? I was a way all weekend In Berkshire while you were jollying around Bodnant again. It looks like you had a lovely (and very refined time) anyway.You do both scrub up very well :-)
