A cool birthday present
Today, October 15th is my Birthday. Let's just say the year I was born Hitler was bombing us and I can still remember being put under the dining room table during air raids. I'm what some would consider to be an old bugger. What has this to do with the picture above? It is a 'brick light' - one of four that will illuminate the pathway to the side entrance. As Ollie the electrician was fitting it I remarked that it looked cool, hastening to add that cool was not a word I often used.
Ollie (21) replied "You should use 'cool' more often. It suits you." Quite the nicest 68th Birthday present a chap could wish for. Cool in fact.
