    Hoping you have a truly wonderful day. [​IMG]
    -
    And in honour of another great man who shares his birthday with you - Robert Burns - here is a little ditty (not one of his I hasten to add, no need to depress you!)

    I thank whatever gods may be
    For all the happiness that's mine;
    That I am festive, fit and free
    To savour women, wit and wine;
    That I may game of golf enjoy,
    And have a formidable drive:
    In short, that I'm a happy old boy
    Though I be
    Sixty-and-five.

    My daughter thinks because I'm old
    (I'm not a crock, when all is said),
    I mustn't let my feet get cold,
    And should wear woollen socks in bed;
    A worsted night-cap too, forsooth!
    To humour her I won't contrive:
    A man is in his second youth
    When he is
    Sixty-and-five.

    At four-score years old age begins,
    And not till then, I warn my wife;
    At eighty I'll recant my sins,
    And live a staid and sober life.
    But meantime let me whoop it up,
    And tell the world that I'm alive:
    Fill to the brim the bubbly cup -
    Here's health to
    Sixty-and-five!
