Was at the living room window in time for the weekly NHS clap and you'll never guess what happened next …
When the clapping finished everyone in the street sang 'Happy Birthday' to me.
I was 70 on Monday.
Word gets around all right.
I thought so.Delete
That is great!ReplyDelete
Now everyone know I am the oldest man in the street. (As if it wasn't obvious)Delete
Was a wee surprise, very welcome.ReplyDelete
Congratulations, but does this not mean that your risk level has suddenly been elevated and you can no longer leave the house?ReplyDelete
Also, this sounds a very young street if there is really no-one else over 70.
I don't leave the house anyway as I'm in a number of at risk groups due to my health, cancer survivor, high blood pressure, current heart problem, asthma and now I'm 70 as well.Delete
I live in a cul-de-sac, there are only 21 houses. There is one widow who lost her husband last year who is older than me. Everyone else is still working so are either 65 or a lot younger. Newest new comers are just about to retire so are in their 60's I guess.
Sounds like a nice community you live in! Have a wee dram to celebrate!ReplyDelete
This time its safe to drink alone...
I will come and say hello if we ever get to Crisis again. Who can tell in these disrupted times.
That was a lovely gesture by your neighbours!
All the best,
A worthy age! Happy birthday! May there be many more yet to come.ReplyDelete
Biblical, as in 3 score years and ten.Delete
We've always had a good community feel in my street so it wasn't a surprise really. The only problem was I couldn't run round the street and shake hands with everyone, my wife would have killed me.Delete
