World News: 16/03/2023

The only news I am interested in today is that it is my birthday. I doubt that will feature on any BBC broadcasts though.

My cards have been opened, along with some gifts sent in the post. When Julie gets home from work this afternoon I will get presents from her, and then we will go out to a restaurant this evening.

As the old saying goes, ‘That’s all the news that’s fit to print!

  1. I spent my afternoon cutting two extremely warped office chair mats (they’d been stored in the garage since 2013) with a pole saw (meant to cut branches and palm fronds) into pieces so that I could stuff them into the recycling bin. At one point, I had to take the kink out of the chain by filing one of the teeth down. There were sharp (polycarbonate? PET?) fragments flying all over the yard as I worked, so I took extra care to avoid injuring myself. So this explains my belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY. (It’s a shitty excuse, but I’m sticking with it.)

  3. You know that I wish you the happiest possible birthday and many more to come –I never get cards for my birthdays because everybody I know is dead or I have lost track of them … which is alright with me ….But Like I said, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR PETE AND MANY MANY MORE TO COME.

  4. Happy Birthday Pete, and I hope you have a great day! πŸ˜€ I don’t normally make much of my own birthdays; I usually get cards from my family; but I might push the boat out a bit next year, when I turn 70 πŸ˜‰ Cheers, Jon.
