Jamie's Birthday

Jamie's 40th Birthday

Sunday 26 February 2017. Fantastic, wonderful day. Shelly's house was looking amazing after 9 months of extensive remodelling. The weather cooperated. The neighbours and family were gobsmacked. Brian next door said "I'm trying to take it all in. I can't believe it.".

And a great deal of hard work to put on the party by Shelly, Alison, Cathy, Karla, Ros and I hope I haven't forgotten anybody. And the kids all chipped in. Jess amused Holly. The dogs amused everybody.

Our younger son Jamie was born on a cold frosty Saturday in our home in Kilwinning, Scotland. His arrival was so quick, there was no time to get to hospital. The family doctor lived a couple of doors away and attended. The ambulance took Alison, Jamie and Robin to Irvine Royal Infirmary. Alison got home on Monday and life as a family of four began. A happy day. A 40 year adventure of mostly good and happy times.

The next day, Shelly and Jamie went to Iceland for 4 fun (and cold) days in the Arctic. Alison and I had a stop-over there in 2005 on the journey home to California after Alan's Wedding. We all really liked Iceland. Beautiful scenery and wonderful people. The resourcefulness and ingenuity of the Icelandic Nation is impressive. For sure they've faced tough challenges from the climate and the banking/financial crisis. An outstanding example of what can be achieved by hard work and ingenuity.
