Having emptied my camera for the first time for ages last night, I came across some pics taken at my lovely father's 80th birthday celebrations at the end of February. How quickly time has flown. My parents are now both 80, and as lively, energetic and astute as ever (far more so than I am, I often feel). They rejoice in good physical and mental health and have certainly enjoyed for the last twenty years the fruits of a lifetime's hard work and fiscal prudence, constantly adding to their in-depth exploration of their native shores, as well as travelling widely abroad - my sister and I never know where the next postcard will be coming from! - and long may it continue, say I.
