Happy Birthday Dad!
Here he is with Mr T enjoying a bit of April sunshine. I took this a couple of years ago on a visit to the Isle of Wight where he lives near my sister. We are at Bembridge.
I am sure he won't mind me saying he is 88 today. Sadly I won't be seeing him for a while.
And talking of the Isle of Wight, any of you who are members of English Heritage will be getting this magazine this month
and if you look o page 34 you will see a feature on Osborne House, which is on the IoW
and who do you think took the picture of the Glasshouse at the bottom right? Yes you've guessed - ME
Here's the original on Fickr which is how they found me. I had an e mail from the picture editor a couple of months ago asking permission to use this image. No fee, but I get a credit in the margin opposite. I guess they rely on people like me feeling flattered at being asked - no matter I am flattered. By the way, if you ever are on the Isle of Wight, Osborne house is well worth a visit.
