My 75th birthday today.Â As it coincided with the Tuesday Geriatrics I did my usual walk round the golf course and bought a kummel or glass of port for those who wanted it.
â€˜The girlsâ€™, at the club, were extremely kind and produced a wedge of chocolate cake with a single candle and a large fluffy singing dog with long floppy ears which flapped amusingly in time to the music. Â I have no idea how they knew, in the advance, that it was my birthday — I was very touched.
Son Miles kindly came down this evening to joined us forÂ supper which rounded off a very happy day.
