Beautiful family photos! I especially love the 4 generation one. And isn't it special to have all those Alexes. I can even see a family resemblance between all of them. Happy birthday to Senior Alex!

Dear Jan ~~ Lovely post with photos and it's easy to see Alex had a good birthday. You all looked nice and had a good time by the sound of it.
Thanks for your comments, I was so pleased Carlton had a win after so many losses. And Richmone have won 2.
Glad you liked the God's Boxes story
and the jokes. Take care, my friend, Love, Merle.

Glad that fun was had by all... I saw the 'bar'... I miss the clubs back home with the 'bar'... the ones we have over here are dives... not a place to take the family like the R.S.L's etc back home...

Hi again Jan ~~ Thanks for your comments and kind words. And you were right, after shopping yesterday, there was a lot of cooking going on around here. Glad you enjoy the post - the story and jokes etc. I haven't heard from Peter, but Vicki had to have some blood tests repeated and they didn't expect the results until
about Friday 18th, so we may hear
soon what is to be done. Take care
my friend, Love, Merle.

You did have a wonderful weekend! Family gatherings are the best and what a great thing to celebrate. I agree with you that something like this is a lot better than going motorhome racing.

Love 'em all Jen...the photos are terrific. I especially like the generation photo. There is just something about that kind of photo I always feel drawn to. And the kiss....super!! Of course it goes without saying that "Yours Truly" as you captioned the other photo...brightens the whole photo.

Thanks for dropping by and enjoy that company.
