Happy birthday to me

Today is my 59th birthday. I opened my inbox to find several greetings messages from various websites and forums. Ah, you're never without a friend in cyberspace!

Olga and I are not planning any special celebration today, though Olga is such a great cook that I prefer eating in anyway. I'm still off wine, despite still having a cupboard full of the stuff from when I was a member of a mail order wine club. At the moment I have enough trouble staying upright when sober. Surprisingly, I really don't miss it (wine, I mean, not staying upright.)

But today deserves celebration as the birthday doctors told me I'd have a slim chance of seeing. Pah! Doctors! What do they know anyway?

There's no reason why you, my loyal readers, can't have a drink on my behalf, though. So here's hoping I'll still be hamming, blogging and beating the bugger in 365 days time, and many more days after that.

Thanks for all your support, and for reading my blog.

Hippy bathday, Julian. I've had a glass or two of wine and made a couple of QRP stealth QSOs in your honour... and will be seeing a couple of old lags from the Ziff days later this week.

happy birthday, Julian. I just had my 64th birthday 8 days ago and like the Beatles's song ' do you still love me when i am 64?',

I found out my better half still love me! carry on!

happy birthday, Julian. I just had my 64th on the 6th and found the answer to the Beatles's question" will you still love me at 64?" It was a yes from my better half.
carry on and remember each new day is a new adventure.
