Bloody hell - 60!
« on: December 26, 2017, 01:13:48 PM »
Well today is my 60th birthday! I'm feeling really good about it. I think once you get over the halfway mark at fifty you lern to relax and just enjoy life.

I have asked all my friends and family not to send presents but instead to donate to the Royal National Lifeboat Institute via a Just Giving page, https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/colin-60th-birthday. If you felt so inclined, both I and the RNLI would be very grateful. Cheeky of me to ask, I know.

I was hoping to tie all this up with a seafaring quote from a Man lyric, but I couldn't think of any. Can you? Drifitng out of sight, from Scotch Corner, was the best I could come up with.

Oh, and Happy Christmas, one and all.

Initial thought - happy 60th, Colin.

Initial thought regarding the question - ok not a lyric, but Deke's seagulls must play a part.

Will give more thought later today between 3pm and 4.55pm.

Incidentally, woke up to unexpected thick snow this morning and a blizzard. Only 24 hours late.

Someone is Calling.  Norwegian sailors just get hurt.  They don't like lying in the dirt.

Best I can manage so far...  Happy birthday and a happy New Year.

Best I can come up with is Deke's seagulls seguing into 'I Always Thought The Walrus Was Protected' with a backing video of MJ and Martin Ace on the boat in the Caribbean or wherever it is.

Well I tried  :)

Happy birthday, Colin.

Can't think of much in the way of seafaring quotes but with your bus pass you're sure to enjoy the ride and the view.

If I can just add to the above 'with Pugwash on the drums'... I presume we all used to watch Capt Pugwash and the myths of Seaman Stains, Master Bates, and Roger the Cabin Boy. Or were they myths...?

Either way, I agree with Allan. Well done Oakers.

I was devastated to discover that these were urban myths.
