    I'm catching up, Lyda - next year, if I make it, will be a big one. Big for me, anyway. Say: I think the snowflake making is changed some. Lots of SOF'ers had a great time with that. Yours were always wonderful. Thank you for the hap.bir.

    40 - how on earth can that be?
  • PigletPiglet All Saints Host, Circus Host
    Happy birthday Master S!

    When David turned 40, his mum said being a granny wasn't nearly as old-making as having a son who was 40! :mrgreen:

    Happy birthday to me.
    It was a triple birthday on Ye Olde Shippe -- happy birthday also to Pants and Jenny Ann. Not sure if they're both here or not.
  • Happy Birthday to @basso, @Pants and @JennyAnn - who did all register and have been seen occasionally (even in real Zoom).

    @Piglet I hope it wasn't too painful.
  • PigletPiglet All Saints Host, Circus Host
    It was OK actually - I met up with an old friend for lunch, and had a very nice dinner with my sister in the evening.

    I also managed to go past the Cathedral without suffering spontaneous eye leakage - although I didn't have the nerve to go in.

    It is indeed, and the sun's been splitting the trees in Embra all day. :smiley:

    Which reminds me - it's also eight years today since my father-in-law died.

    RIP Len.

    Gosh - congratulations Mousethief! :)

    Happy Shipiversary, @mousethief!

  • TheOrganistTheOrganist Shipmate
    Mick Jagger is 78 today, Helen Mirren is 76. The difference between the lizard lookalike Stones frontman and the thespian dame would seem obvious - moisturiser 😂
  • Happy Shipiversary, mousethief!
    Mousethief coolers all round!

    Also, does Helen Mirren smoke? Because Jagger certainly did, even if he doesn't now, and that dries and wrinkles skin.

    Happy Shipiversary @mousethief

    1 year ago today a kind nurse sent me home for 3 hours to sleep while my daughter and her partner sat with my papa - Covid rules relaxed if palliative. I returned, set up a zoom call to 3 continents and he died within 10 minutes. 11 years to the day of my mother who died ignominiously while I travelled hours. His death created some symmetry and positivity only because we see the poetry of it.

    It was difficult retrieving the ashes from the funeral home - they keep them for up to year. We're discussing now that it will be 2 years before we can be together.

    The 2 deaths, my mind compresses the 11 years separating them as of they're simultaneous.

    But it's also 2 days before one of my children was randomly attacked and nearly murdered a decade ago (yes, it was that, before). I can't cry too much about the deaths or I shall turn also to anger too and I can't afford my own murderous rage.

    Perhaps it's too much sharing?. Though there's quite a lot more than this too. I think we're not accorded happiness and blessings and that God just watches: hands off. Or maybe there are chosen people who get that sort of divine attention. I'm accorded reality, understanding and a few kind people. Including here. That's it.

    My sympathies and prayers for you in your grief, NOprophet-N0profit. I lost my parents 10 years apart, both before I was 40. I felt like an orphan.
  • DooneDoone Shipmate
    Prayers from me as well, @NOprophet_NØprofit. Peace be with you 🕯

    Prayers from me too, NP.

    I am thinking of you @NOprophet_NØprofit . Every time I read or think of your experiences I never know what to say. Apart from "Sh*t. That's incomprehensibly horrendous."
