Will you trim his 'buggy' Sharron, so everyone knows or maybe put up a sign on a lamppost for when he goes out lol ?

Congratulations on keeping your Dad going strong at such a good age!

How did the funeral in the village go Sharron?J


ButtercupFields Report 23 Nov 2012 08:45

Happy Birthday Dear Fred.

Lots of Love <3



Sharron Report 23 Nov 2012 08:47

The funeral is today but I don't think we will go.It will be very buy there and I don't think the old man liked him much anyway.

I will just have to feed him myself.

Happy Birthday Fred.Good luck with the catering for this event Sharron.



Sharron Report 23 Nov 2012 09:12

The catering!

Because it is his birthday I said he could have whatever he liked for tea.

What he likes most is to not have to make decisions so even that is downto me.

Is Fred 'the only old in the village'?

A couple of "39 today" helium balloons on his wheels would be just the ticket :-D :-D

Happy birthday young man :-D :-D <3

Sharron Report 23 Nov 2012 19:54
