OH SHIT!..IT'S FINALLY HAPPENED....I AM NOW FIFTY YEARS OF AGE !!!!....OH SHIT!........

AAAAAHHH!.....ITS FINALLY COME TO PASS , ITS HAPPENED , ITS OCCURRED ...YOUR BELOVED FINGER ON THE PULSE, EYES N' EARS OF THE WORLD...(And all the other bits attached, of course..) HAS FINALLY HIT THE BIG FIVE OOOH!..50...(sob ,sniffle ,snort)....
I went to my bed last night a young fresh faced young 49 year old and was awakened about 6.00 a.m .this morning by my excited daughter. Not, i hasten to add that she was excited for her beloved father. No! It was because we share the same birthday and shes hit the big 12.... The Lovely Lynne ,even at that ungodly hour, wished me a happy birthday. I replied , not unreasonably i thought, "Sod off ,its not my birthday ,its too early." But over the next 10 minutes or so a mug of tea was supplied, my first as a 50 year old. I opened a couple of presents and a heap of cards, which cheered me up a little. The lovely Lynne and the not so sweet 'Little 'un went off to school n' work or whatever, whilst i slobbed on the couch in a dressing gown guzzling tea watching 'Randell and Hopkirk; The saint; The Proffessionals, all good 50 fare. I might even put on some SUPERCAR,or FIREBALL XL5 dvd'ds later with a touch of MAN FROM UN.C.L.E.; With a smidgin of VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA dvd's before me mam n' the mam n' dad in law descend this afternoon.As they'll watch some of those antique afternoon things and COUNTDOWN and DEAL OR NO DEAL, not on DVD ,i hasten to add.As we wait the return of the Lovely Lynne before we go off to a local boozer for a bit of scoff. I'm not drinking, i cant take it at my age!..(But i'm still a guy who can't,but should a little more often, say no!)... I'd politly inquire as to wether they'd prefer to watch GERRY ANDERSON'S U.F.O. but i dont think they'll go for it. Ah well ,i s'pose i'll be off i've got to get me over 50 tablets and new walking stick n' stuff , oh and get a moth eaten cardigan that buttons up wrong with the few buttons left. Age is a terrible thing.

Thanks for the birthday greetings and for that tip which i can see me taking advantage of ,but i slipped into my old sinful ways having dinner in a boozer ,only a couple tho', laid off the 'demon wee ones'...How long till this dreadful condition of advanced aged birthday hits your good self?
Koff, koff, excuse me ,the bodies packin' in already.

Dear Tim,

Speaking as somone who's older than you, not by a lot, but older nonetheless ... FNAAARRRRR!!!!

I decided to ignore my birthday, and it went away. Suggest you do the same.

The drink,tablets,drugs,lotions and medicinal smacks around the head help me to forget. But these old wives bits of help and best wishes are deeply appreciated, my aged sweet. By the way due to my total lack of understanding of this new fangled computer stuff,means i dont seem to be able to leave affectionate notes for you onyour site.Now i'll ignore me and go away

Now, that IS a pity. I miss those comments. The ritual abuse, the hints that I may be a floozie (on wet Fridays) the pinny stains, all that! I wondered where you'd been!

I know I've got comment moderation now, but the whole thing's just the same as it ever was, it's just that I get to see the abuse before I publish it.

You get to see the abuse in the privacy of your own waterbeded boudoir on wet Fridays in your stained pinny on stained blankets, ya Floozy...The comments may be subject to moderation, but promise me you never will.
