Five-o

Today is my birthday.  You may be able, by using the hint in the post title, to figure out which one.  If you require additional clues, then it may be of interest to learn that the photo of me aged 3 was taken 47 years ago....

And I still have photogenic knees.

It is a scientifically proven fact that the more birthdays you have, the longer you live!
Happy Birthday Tim and may you have many more.
Cheers
Col.
P.S. I was going to say that as a child you would walk up to people and say "Have a look under my kilt.....It's gruesome" and as he got older, it gruesome more!

The big 5-zero, eh? Let's see: when I hit the half-ton, the new century (starting at year 1 not year 0) was just beginning...

Ross Mac rmacfa@gmail.com said...

Happy Birthday and many happy days but we'll make up our own judgement on the knees (he said hoping to never have the chance).

Paul Foster said...

Excellent work Tim. Not everyone can say they have bodged their way to the half century mark.

Many happy returns mate.

Tim Gow said...

Ross Mac
No more knee talk? Agreed.

Tim Gow said...

Paul Foster
To be fair, I've only been building/bodging models since 1971...
