Help Wanted

Postby gstark on Wed May 09, 2012 8:25 am

Ok, all y'all.

Just thought I'd mention this, as it's the first one I'm actually taking semi-seriously.

There's 60 candles on my birthday cake today, and being the old, feeble man that I now (officially) am, I need help in blowing them out.

Happy birthday, Gary. May you have a fantastic year ahead. I must say, you don't look a day over 59 years, 364 :biglaugh: days.
Regards, Patrick

Two or three lights, any lens on a light-tight box are sufficient for the realisation of the most convincing image. Man Ray 1935.

Actually, we still have a few chocolate truffles remaining from Laura's Candies (on Rue Chartres), one of which was consumed for breakfast this morning.

I should ask De to put 60 candles in one - I think we have three left now - and we should bring it to the jam tonight at the Stag. :)

Congratulations on becoming (officially!) an old fart. I think they make a beer in your honour. Have one for me.

Hmm. Taurus, That explains a lot. :P

Happy birthday Gary and do your best in blowing out the candles because when you reach my age you will need a power compressor :cheers:

Glad you said "officially" because Gary has always been ahead of his time, he's been an old fart for a long time :biglaugh:
:cheers: Happy birthday Gary.
