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.

    I have a dinner meeting tonight at a Mexican restaurant. It’s not radio-related, so I will make my toast a silent one. But I will definitely raise a glass to your health. I wish you many more happy birthdays.

    Happy birthday Julian and keep bashing away at the enemy. Better drink Yorkshire Tea than vino because at least you stay upright old boy. Never without a steaming hot mug of Yorkshire’s finest brew in my shack. 73 and all the best to you and the Staion Manager- bless her. Steve G0PQB.
