30/05/2016 A special Happy Birthday to my FIL who turns 95 today. It just keeps raining here!

Maximum temperature 16C, minimum 12C.  39 km/h NW winds.  7m rain measured this morning but it has not stopped raining all day.
95 today, Happy Birthday.

    1. Quite feat being 95 and still living alone, he is quite amazing. He has a tea party coming up on Friday with a whole stack for friends which my SIL and husband have arranged for him. He went out to lunch on Sunday so he has done pretty well. Diane

    1. We have had so much rain this year Velva that we need a break! On the other hand we are away in June, so we would like it to rain then to keep the garden going. Wish we could order it when required LOL. Keep well Diane
