Birthday time and what a birthday it was! Brenda had put time and effort into every aspect to produce a superb and memorable day for me ……. thank you, very much it was truly worth it.

My No1 present with a ton of new tools to go in it

I was particularly impressed with the “joke” shoes which cost a fortune for the birthday boy to wear once and only once!!These gorgeous shoes had been on my “wish list” for a few months and I liked the design very much but they were a little expensive so I was delighted when I undid the box. They fitted perfectly and were exceedingly comfortable! 1300, and ready for action the shoes are donned and the first drink is in hand …… let the party begin ……..

Guests arrive, Shade Garden and Pool Room in full swing and adult beverages flow and more endless tales of daring-do on the high seas, Harleys, pool, women, and bouts off ill advised drinking and car buying.
