SIXTY FOUR. (01/03/14)

It’s a beautiful day with barely a cloud in the sky and for once the wind is just a zephyr. I am sixty four today and have done a card to celebrate._V0G8124

I lit a candle in the wee burn. If anyone else has a birthday today then feel free to share the card.

Have a really good year……..I will do my best to.

  2. Happy Birthday Adrian!

    I can say without one bit of doubt, this is best birthday card I've ever seen! I love how you super-imposed (if that is the right word) the candle on stream. It is just great!

    Sixty four is not bad, I'll be 66 in April.

    1. David, thank you. Yes; superimposed will do fine. Shot against a black background then plonked on and blend mode changed to either scree or lighten. I think I settled on lighten.

  5. I hope you have a very good day and a very good year, Adrian! I'll be 73 in a couple of weeks.

    There is a wee typo in your title - (01/02/14)? Shouldn't that be (01/03/14)?

    1. YP, I have heard the name Justin Bieber but know nothing about him. I know a little more now. He's a druggy and a singer. Did he win I Want to be an X-Factor or something?
      Thank you.

    2. I think he is your long lost love child.

    1. Thanks Douglas. The dogs inspired by the sunshine decided to go for a swim. Stinking wet dogs in the van. That is worse than a candle in the burn.

    1. Horst, they plied me with drink. The flute doesn't work with slow fingers. I went back to the camper and got a couple of penny whistles. I can work them Norwegian Wood is a good one for me.

  15. Happy Birthday, Adrian. You share your day with one of my heroes. My cousin's son turns 25 today. Born with a benign tumor (only discovered at age 3) on his brain stem, he went through all sorts of difficulties, surgeries, chemo (in later years), radiation and poor prognoses. He's a university graduate, independent world traveler, mover, shaker and and group organizer.. and doing great. Happy Day to the both of you.

    1. Hilary, send him the card. I trust he has survived though doubt he is grateful to have done.

  18. Well, well, well. I missed a real trip to Blogland yesterday and look what happened. I missed your Birthday. So I can't wish you a happy Birthday but I can wish you a very happy, contented, health and successful year ahead. So that's just what I'll do.

    1. Graham, many thanks. It is that pesky date line that is at fault.

  19. Am I late, too? Ah well, best wishes for the coming year anyway. At least that is one candle you didn't burn at both ends!

  21. Hi Adrian and best wishes for your new word. I finally found out where Java Script had turned itself off and made up a password complicated enough for Google so I am able to comment again. Jean

  24. Much belated Happy Birthday. Concerned about the proximity of the flame to the trees ... a rebellious streak no doubt :-)

  25. Jay, I'm surprised I got this far. Firing a forest is one way of celebrating.
