Happy Birthday Gordon.

PS I have noticed that all the best people have birthdays at this time of year.  Totally coincidentally, and for no particular reason. I'm going out for a meal tomorrow evening  ;)

SO YOUNG! My 'darling' grandson told me the other day that I didn't look a day older than 135! ;D

Happy birthday Gordon (for yesterday)

Though the pitcher that goes to the sparkling rill
Too oft gets broken at last,
There are scores of others its place to fill
When its earth to the earth is cast ;
Keep that pitcher at home, let it never roam,
But lie like a useless clod,
Yet sooner or later the hour will come
When its chips are thrown to the sod.

Is it wise, then, say, in the waning day,
When the vessel is crack'd and old,
To cherish the battered potter's clay,
As though it were virgin gold ?
Take care of yourself, dull, boorish elf,
Though prudent and safe you seem,
Your pitcher will break on the musty shelf,
And mine by the dazzling stream.

Thank you all. I intend to. Although rain is still falling as if the great flood has returned. Perhaps it has. However I will add more liquid to the mix this evening!
