Today I've had many phone calls and cards from Family and friends, tonight I have been to my daughter Donna's and son- inlaw Brett's for dinner .
We had Garlic and rosemary roast lamb with vegetables a plenty, ending the meal with the birthday ice cream cake .
Thank you Donna and Brett..

Happy happy birthday !! I hope it is not too late, but I didn't know. It's funny my son had his birthday on the 20th ! 35 ! what an old man !
You had a lovely birthday feast and to get together with Merle is also wonderful. It's a pity that you all live on the other side of the world ! When I think that even in the 70th it was noy yet possible to telephone to Australia ! and now we are chatting here.
