We've never been big on celebrating Anniversaries.

In Oz our anniversary falls around Father's Day, and also my son's birthday is two day's prior to our anniversary :-D :-D :-D

And Congrats to your son on reaching his big 40 :-) :-)

I was also away for our 25th, but as everyone who attended our wedding was either dead or still in the UK, there was no one to celebrate with except ourselves :-( :-(

Be careful, some people may think that we are encouraging the consumption of alcohol. :-0

Someone once asked OH if I drank to excess, she replied that I'd drink to anything ;-) :-D :-D

This thread is really about the bland leading the bland.

Harry Report 6 Sep 2016 16:59

Don't smoke; drink; gamble; and can't find any loose women. Also a poet. I'm jealous of bland people - I know my place.

Happy Days - but that sounds pretty exciting.


GeordiePride Report 6 Sep 2016 17:06

Is there an examination I can take to make me completely BLAND.



JoyLouise Report 6 Sep 2016 17:36

Caroline Report 6 Sep 2016 18:35

Maybe you'd be classified totally bland if you could keep this thread going for at least a week.


JoyLouise Report 6 Sep 2016 18:39
