That time of year again

Yes, the years roll around. Yesterday was my birthday, and I've been celebrating with a series of birthday lunches over the last few days.

Here I am with my father at today's lunch. Happy day-after-birthday to me. Another year older and even greyer, but I guess that's a lot better than the alternative.

Happy birthday Russell! I certainly hope to be as intellectually engaged as you when I earn my grey. :)

I hope I'll still be as switched on as my dad when I reach his current age.
