Guess what guys....today, September 6th...is my dad's....97th birthday.!!
cheers

We phoned him this morning...he lives an hours drive from us...and sang happy birthday to him....he sounds really happy and totally amazed that he's turned 97. Very Happy He's the oldest living member of his family.

On October 21st (all being well) he and mum (aged 89) will celebrate their 68th wedding anniversary.
Very Happy

Smiles to you all. Vella. queen

I had a little chat with mum and dad this afternoon and asked dad how he enjoyed his birthday yesterday. Apparently he had a little "impromptu" party. They live in a retirement village and most of the residents are widows, there are very few men there. Anyway, a couple of ladies found out it was dads birthday so he invited them around for a cup of afternoon tea. It turns out, 4 ladies came, and of course mum was there and dad was the only man present and one of the ladies bought a bottle of red wine. He was tickled pink that he had 5 women helping to celebrate and he was the only man and there and there were lots of cakes and of course the bottle of wine. He said they had lots of laughs and it was one of the best birthdays he's ever had...I thought that was soooooo funny. I'm glad he enjoyed his day. He might be old, but he's still got plenty of fun in him......

70 is a platinum anniversary, I just looked it up on google.

Sounds like you folks had a great time on your dads birthday, I hope the cake was nice

That's an amazing testimony that your parents have, Vella. Still gettin around & kickin at 97 and been hitched for 68 of those years is very incredible & very admirable. Maybe when he's 120 yrs. old we'll read about them in Time magazine!
Congratulations on having good parents, Vella.
