    For months family, friends and I have joked with Mr. F. every time he says he has an ache or that his forgotten something and said: “Well you are nearly 80!” We can no longer use that one as he had a lovely day and week celebrating his 80th with the family, the highlight for him was having a ride on a steam train on the day, followed by lunch with our two daughters, all a treat for their dad.

    Now you have to say he’s in his 81st year! Living proof that doing something that you enjoy keeps you young.

    Looks like a great time was had by all! When I was a youngster in the 50’s, 50 year old men looked older than Mr FC does now! :good:

    Well I’m really pleased you all had a lovely time together! Ofcourse you can now say in response to the aches and pains etc. “ Well you are nearly 90!”  :heart:  I agree Mr FC looks fantastic!

    Thanks for your comments folks. For now we’re able to say “Well you are 80 you know” Later it will be “Well you are nearly 81!” He doesn’t do bad all things considered  – diabetic, had a stroke, quadruple heart by-pass, prostate cancer and half colon removal – obviously gotta keep him working, seems to be doing the trick!

    Tigre – it’s the Kent and East Sussex railway, just a small trip from Tenterden to Bodiam, both the girls only live a short distance from Tenterden, as Mr. F. loves steam trains, it was an ideal present from them, I enjoyed it too, the carriages have been beautifully brought back to their original glory, the girls and I all said we could imagine the ladies of yesteryear sitting where we were sitting – a lovely bit of nostalgia. Here’s a photo for Mr. Tigre (I asked if he could get up there for a look as it was his 80th birthday!)

    He also loves boats and the water so really enjoyed the trip over on the ferry from St. Malo to Portsmouth

    I have to admit, he sure doesn’t look his age.  You must be doing something to keep him looking so good.    :-)
