THE KITES AND BUNTING ARE OUT........



....FOR A SPECIAL CELEBRATION.


Reed Bunting


 

This is where it all started...in the front bedroom of a small two up two down terraced cottage located in a small South Cambridgeshire village close to the Hertfordshire border...

....65 years ago on the 27th. April 1951 a small bundle of joy was brought into the world.
 

 (I'm glad that I soon grew out of the dress wearing phase!)



 Celebrating Corn Bunting and Reed Bunting.





The blonde hair didn't last long either, although during the last decade it does (what's left of it) appear to have once again reverted towards a lighter shade...of grey!

65 years is a good amount of time to perfect your own style and persona to present to the world....

 
...how do you think I've done?

 

Corn Bunting


Now I find that some days trying to keep up the standard is just sooo tiring!....

Happy Birthday Trevor, though I did hear rumours that you have not quite grown out of the dress wearing phase lol

I hope you had a great day. Many happy returns.
I like your low level style, I tend to lie flat out and have the very devil of a job getting up again.

What could I possibly say about the dress?

Happy birthday.

Cheers Keith.....I think it's best if we just don't mention the dress thing again, it was just an early phase that I went through!...[;o{

How did I miss this one!!

This one slipped through the net for some reason to do with the Auto update Trevor.
Belated Many Happy Returns for the 27th.
65. still just a lad really.
Some great images, although not too sure about the "Macro Shooting" pose though.
The last one however, "In repose", that is more appropriate and it would be good if bench seats were always strategically placed.{:))

The Herald said...

Thanks Roy. Still feeling young at heart, although the body might have other ideas!

It's always good to know where the resting places are...[;o)
