The comedy book I gave Alan for 80 year olds does not remotely mirror his life but it was funny all the same
I congratulated him on 'getting there' but also said 'it was too soon'
How could my young and handsome husband be 80!!
Here we see his birthday cake at the party I put on for him
In case you wondered, it is a golf bag
Making life easy with a cold buffet
we were very blessed to have guests contribute food
and I bought lots of delicious desserts that I forgot to photograph
He enjoyed an evening with friends and our children and grandchildren
Some quick random shots around the house - hopefully unobserved
Bekah wants to be involved in the cutting of the cake
The feedback today was that everyone enjoyed just being together while chatting and sharing a meal amidst an enjoyable and peaceful atmosphere
The above is the basis of a card I made for him with a few glimpses of his life
His main presents were a laptop and kindle and some money to treat himself (a very difficult thing for Alan to do)
