What goes around...

We had a great night last night at a surprise party for Rich to celebrate his turning 40 last week - hello mate if you're looking in! After months of preparation by Annita, everything appeared to go according to plan and he had absolutely no idea that a myriad of faces from past and present were waiting to celebrate with him.

I'm fairly certain that a mutual friend of mine and Rich, a Mr Pete Frenzy (currently residing in the US of A under the shadow of an enormous stainless steel arch) also passes the same milestone during April. I really ought to know the actual date, although we've only known each other for 23 years - sorry Pete!

The end of this month sees my old schoolmate Rob turn 40 and we'll be reviving an old tradition of celebrating his birthday with a session at the Cleethorpes beer festival - the first time for too many years.

So I have to wonder that as 2006 goes on and more of my old school and college mates turn the big four-oh, whether they'll find it as funny as it seemed to them all in January...

Yes, the big 40 this month - the same day of the month as Charles Richter was born - a very shaky day.....

Pleased to hear all went well for Rich's party...
