Cock-a-doodle-do! 80 today!

Thanks for popping in.
Can’t stop long.
Got a Dad to go congratulate and give a big hug to!


80 years young.
Still a handsome chap!


And Mum is doing great too.
Happy days.


So the four of us, the Grays, are celebrating this evening.
Just a quiet meal.

Then tomorrow it’s telly time.
Actually, if you want to know how to rustle up a really colourful and chipper cock in minutes, do tune in at 5pm tomorrow.
We all love a vibrant cock, don’t we?!
(the cockerel in the picture, I mean. What else??) 

Ooooh, she’s feeling impish...

Love & hugs,
Barb

  1. Happy birthday Barbara and Steve's dad!! Had to laugh Barbara. Every October we have the Goose Fair in Nottingham and if you visit the fair, you should never come away without buying a cock on a stick! (Lollypop shaped like a cockerel) As you can imagine, hundreds of puns and sniggering. Lol

    Enjoy your meal and hope all goes well tomorrow x

  29. Happy birthday to Barbara's dad, he doesn't look any where near 80. Have a lovely celebration meal.
    Down here in Cornwall we use the expression "my cock "as a term of endearment, as in "are you alright my cock"!
    Looking forward to the shows tomorrow. My stencil order arrived today, very efficient and always well packed, thank you for the special offer xx

  33. Your father looks far younger than his years, how lucky...
    Love the Cock reference...my lovely mum always had a big one in the kitchen.....cockeral type......but if anyone commented on it, and they did, she would say....oh yes, I do love my cock....we never told her, ...thought it best to let her keep her innocence....lol....hope my story hasn't offended anyone but it's true....xx
