Noticed the "Members birthdays" that this is your day. Hope you stuffed yourself with your favorite foods and did a bit of fiddling too 🙂

Awww  - TYVM @bob 

Yeah - hit number 65 - apparently, in the UK, I am officially retired.....

Nahhhh - that means nothing to me....

We had a couple of nights away in a hotel in my home-town of Dornoch, old haunts visited, old ( very old ) memories returning...  great stuff...  !!!   Lengthy walk along the huge open sands along the Dornoch Firth...   happy days, happy days...

I didn't have the fiddle with me - but I did play today when we got back !!!!

Thanks for your kind thoughts, it's appreciated !  hats_off

Happy happy Billy..  65 is the new 45 (I hope so since I am only 5 years behind you).

 

65, retirement?, 66 1/2 for me.  Or as I taunt my younger co-workers, 6 years, 2 months, 3 days...(not that I am counting).  

Journey began on Aug 3 2017

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATE....

Hope you and the misses had a good short holiday.

There is no sense in retiring, your friends will just expect you to work for free...lol

With violins there is no fretting over the music.

Thank you, and aye, @JamesRSmithJr - in my last full-time employment (large company which shall remain nameless) I had a daily count-down above my desk - but I got so sickened with having to get more involved in politics than engineering, I walked, and just went self-employed.   That was difficult to start with, but a LOT of fun, letting me do the things I really enjoyed.   

And thanks Don @OldOgre - we did, it was a nice break.  LOL @"work for free"....

Still trying to translate the following into English... ics.JPGImage Enlarger- have a bit of fiddling (pizza / piece-of fiddle), a slow couple of glasses of wine followed by cake and beer

 

That's the best I can do ( and it was close to what happened.... how did you know? ROFL )

Cheers @TerryT !    Thank you !

@BillyG Hey, I seem to be a tad belated here but since you were the first to welcome me to the forum, I would be remiss if I failed to wish you a very wonderful Birthday!
