Thank you


Thank you one and all for your warm birthday greetings.

My 66th was an excellent day. To use a golfing term, I have played more than half the course and find myself on “the back nine,” maybe the 10th or 12th fairway. I hope the clubhouse, the 19th hole, will still be open when I get there.

My neighbour’s young daughter thinks being retired means you are too tired to work. How I am not too tired, how I am finding retirement rather agreeable and why I am a little surprised to have made it this far is to be found on

A flagrant plug for myself? Well, there’s no point in having a trumpet on the back nine if you can’t blow it.

God bless,
