Naturally, Jessica had made a cake, and I was obliged to blow out the candles. This caused a certain amount of amusement;

As was her wont, Mum found her way to the washing up.

Jessica and Mum 7.92

Jessica kept her company.

I do hope my shirt had been washed between these two parties. This was the first milestone of 1992. The second is to follow.

Shelly and Ron visited to return various cooking pots from the weekend, and I printed a few of the pictures for Shelly and Donna.

Mr Pink’s fish and chips joined our gherkins and pickled onions for dinner this evening. Jackie drank Hoegaarden, and I drank more of the Bordeaux.

  1. I think you remind me of my brother, Randy, who tends to enjoy bringing fun and antics into parties, holidays and events.
    The chocolate cake looks yummy. The kids are as always a pleasure to see. This was a great comparison between two party gatherings. πŸ˜€ 🎈🍻

  2. Looking at those photo, I find you have maintained your pace well through the innings which is sailing smoothly towards the Century! Your moustache reminds me of doughty Ian Botham, too!

  3. Missed this one Derrick, what a wonderful collection of memories on your 50th.. and such a wonderful picture of your Mum.. One I am sure you looked back on to remember all the fun that day..
    Enjoy your weekend Derrick..

  4. The later addition of a beard has, I believe, brought an air of distinction that the 50 year old Derrick lacked. However, from looking at the pictures I suspect eating cake is probably easier without the beard. πŸ™‚
