Happy Birthday

Today is rather a special day. My uncle is 90.

Later this month we are having a family get-together to celebrate. The plans are still ‘under wraps’, but it will be a gentle day with lots of memories tossed backwards and forwards. He’ll be taking the day off – you see he is still working! Yes, still writing and investigating scientific things with no intention of retiring. In fact, he’s still travelling the world and lecturing.

I tried to find a photograph, but I don’t have one on this computer. Instead I’m including one of our son with all our grandchildren taken a few years ago

The cousins are great friends even though there is a difference in age. I thought it was appropriate to show this picture as my earliest memory of my uncle goes back to when I was about the same age as the youngest boy shown here. It was around the time my sibling was born. Sadly, I never had any cousins.

Happy Birthday Uncle D
