A memorable 90th birthday
We spent a lovely lunch celebrating close friend D'Arry Osbornes 90th birthday with close friends and family at the D'Arenberg winery, normally outside but it was very wet so in the old stables. D'Arry is Johns fishing mate and we have knownb him for over 50 years. Such a lovely man but the friends are getting fewer every year. John wrote a poem for him, they are always a lovely way to remember birthdays, not that I ever get one, but perhaps, I hope that is too close. Very humid, still dripping with rain with mnore forcast for later tonight and a weather alert out. Nice to be home but nice to be part of a quiet, gentleman.
