My neighbor recently turned 70 years of age. His wife has been organizing a surprise bday party for over 6 months, and guess what? Frank hates surprises! All went without a hitch and the party was great. Aside from Firestick J and a 4 year old, I was one of the few younger ones at the party.. now that makes you feel young! And what better way to spend the day celebrating your friends bday, and the bonus you ask…? Well, they were all ex-servicemen & servicewomen. Which really means that I wasnt the only one attending the function with more than the 1 token tattoo.. in fact, we all compared tattoos! Great day & great times.

Of course, since it was held at the RSL (similar to the VFW in the states, the Queen was even present!
Speech time.. Frank, his wife Pene, and daughter Kate

Some of the ex-servicemen.. I believe this were navy boys once upon a time!
