Richard's Birthday!

Dear Richard,

Happy Birthday!

Love,
Kay


In honor of my husband's birthday, I have to share a couple of videos with you.  The first one is "Melancholy Man" and the second one is "My Melancholy Baby".   If you have been reading my blog, you know how my mind works by now and the second song kind of answers the first one.  (And Richard will love these fruit and vegs shown in the video!) 

Great to speak to and to SEE my inlaws today on Skype, what a great thing it is.  Hey, Joan and Peter, you both look as sharp as ever!

And by the way, you know the way women are crazy about Brad Pitt and George Clooney, hey they are okay, but I think Chas & Dave are the ones for me.  Oh yes, I am partial to these Englishmen.  Blame Richard!

Send Richard happy birthday wishes and remind him
you are waiting on him to do a guest post!

    1. Hey Carol!
      Let's go to a Moody Blues concert together, what do you say!!
      We are HUGE fans of the Moody Blues. I've told Richard that had I seen them in concert before our son was born, he would have been little JJ (Justin John). Honestly, I would have named him that!

  11. Apologies for the late sending of our card Rick. All being well, it will arrive in time for Thanksgiving.

    Speaking of late submissions, where is your post on the Eastbourne front?

    7 September must be a good day to get born: we are off to H's 84th birthday meal.It is in a restaurant near Bexhill in a converted railway station - closed by Dr Beeching - called West Station.

    The folks send their congrats,too.

    Henry and Sarah

    PS; nifty shot of the moon

    1. Thanks so much for your comment here, Henry!
      And your Dad and Richard have the same birthday! Doesn't surprise me though, they are such nice blokes, eh? That restaurant sounds wonderful, keep it mind for us when we visit next, will you?
      Take care!

      Now, you really need to know about his great writing skills!

    1. You cannot know how perfect your comment is for Richard, since he is fascinated by astronomy. He spends a lot of time on hubblesite.org!

      Thanks so much for your lovely wishes for my hubby!
      And so happy that you love the Moody Blues too! Please do a post about them if you think about it, I think they are so under-rated! xx
