Birthday


It's the Prof's birthday today,
and as usual he's got the 7 am train to work.
There is a small pile of cards on the bookcase in the living room awaiting his return and later we are having an Indonesian meal out to mark the day.
It's not my place to let you all know just how many he has celebrated over the years.
Suffice to say that it's the 18th of his birthdays  we have marked together
A great deal of water has flowed under a large number of bridges over that time.
I hope there are many more bridges to negiotiate before we finally reach the sea.

  76. Happy Birthday, Proff, from the north shore of Long Island, which is a lot like Wales except for the weather, the people, the language, the animals, and the food, so, really, it's not like Wales at all.

    1. Long Island contains an "l", an "s" and an "a" just like Wales.
