Another birthday

Ach 47 today. I am still 20 years younger than John Major and my birth date is still 401 years after the Battle of Towton - the bloodiest ever on British soil.

A nice quiet day ahead and enough money for a bottle of Amouage Epic and perhaps a Duchamp tue... Woo hoo!

Happy Birthday, Jams!

Not much has changed, though: You are still 20 years younger than John Major, I am still 28 years younger than Maggie Thatcher, only the proportional relation between our ages has changed a bit.
Sláinte!

Happy Birthday. (And I'm just back from helping my son celebrate his birthday on the 28th - and I bet tomorrow will be somebody else's birthday too. Jings! Too many people too few days to go round.)

Cheers.

Happy Birthday Jams.

Most of the people I know seem to be having special '0' birthdays at least your are quite safely between two of those milestones ;-)

Claudia said...

Happy Birthday! Celebrating with Pinot noir du Pays D'Oc. Ain't comparing my years with yours, Jams. More will not make us wiser, and less will not make us younger. Unless Youth and Wisdom are our heart condition. Wishing you (all your lifelong) laughter and great companionship with loved ones and friends.À ta santé, mon ami! It's a joy to know you.

I have no idea if my birthday co-incides with a bloody battle (since you have the bloodiest, not sure could lay claim to anything) but wishing you a fantabulous day with suitable beverages and pleasures.

Happy Birthday Jams

Hopefully, none of the four legged fellows will great you with a hairball or yard kill. The latter seems to be the work of Bebe as the rest are too lazy

Happy Birthday, Jams! I wish you many more wonderful years to come.

Stan said...

Happy birthday, Jams! Here's to the next 47 — hell, the next 100. And on your 147th birthday I will bake you a cake in the shape of a snooker table.

jams o donnell said...

Aw thanks everyone. Stan I look forward to it. Beak, mercifully Bebe deigned not to give a gift this year!

Tulloch said...

Happy Byrdday from me too, Jams. You've caught me up, at least for the next six months. Have you got tickets for RH in April yet? I've got a posse of old gits going to the Oxford gig - can't wait!
