THE LATEST PHOTO OF ME - 80TH BIRTHDAY
Well that's me now entered my 9 th. decade ! Never thought that I would make it ......
And ............... I'm even fuller of myself. I used to be egotistical, but now I'm perfect !!
Health been OK. The cataract in my left eye is "stable" & the glaucoma has receded.
Had yet another tooth out, That's half gone now.
Had another "emergency" visit to the medical centre ... under compulsion (my neighbour's daughter is a nurse & thought I had heart trouble !) ... but, as I told them, "There's nowt wrong with me !" It was just an irritated esophagus.
Been quite active with the Tyros 4 keyboard. Managed to learn some shortcuts with the help of a young lady of 77 years ! The link of me playing "Don't Laugh at me Because I'm a Fool" is under my photo (up/right).
My neighbour, Beryl, wrote a poem for me, for my birthday. (at left) Nice to be loved !!
The year has seen me becoming even more "reclusive", I don't go out unless I have to. I prefer to say that I have achieved peace & contentment.
"THAT'S ALL FOLKS !" .............. SEE YOU NEXT YEAR
|TO A FRIEND AT 80
You tell me that you've lost it !
And I know that's not the way
You're still a very 'clever clogs'
I see it every day
And just because you're "80"
It really doesn't matter
I'm sure you'll still amuse me
With your funny cheeky patter
I'm really glad I met you
You’ve become a real good mate
I hope that we continue
Till you're at least "1 - O - 8"
So thank you very much Ted
As a teacher you're the best
As a pupil I am not so good
And I know that I'm a "pest"
So thank you once again, Ted
And thanks for being my friend
I hope you have a happy day
From beginning to the end
