(I turned 13 on Friday the 13th many, many years ago!)
Carpe diem* as they say.
*Sieze the day
You share your birthday with my late father, who would have been 94 today.
Were reminded, trying to not recall, as is our custom, the trial 8 years ago of the assaillant who nearly killed one of our's.
And it was -42°C (-44°F) today. Fitting. Cold day in hellish rememberings. I'm not fond of my cousin just now who reminded us of both.
I never managed to meet him in RL, but he was an inspiration to many of us here.
May he rest in peace.
Rest eternal grant unto him, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon him.
I promise this will be my last in memoriam for a wee while: my cousin L, who was also the best friend of my (only slightly) mis-spent youth, died a year ago today aged only 53.
It's safe to say that this week last year wasn't the best of my life.
May she rest in peace.
We don't feel old enough to have been married for 30 years....
We had our 30th last July, and like Nick, we can't quite believe it.
D. marked the occasion by putting a lot of Welsh or Welsh-inspired music into his lunchtime organ recital.

According to a notice D. saw in a shop, today is also National Pig Day, and it would be most remiss of me not to point it out.
Happy birthday, sharkshooter!
May Loth's dad rest in peace and rise in glory.
