A Hard Day’s Night

Seeing Paul’s birthday coming up, reminds me of the time he celebrated his Dad’s 62nd birthday following the premiere of “A Hard Day’s Night” in London.

They were at the after party at The Dorchester Hotel, and when it turned midnight and became the 7th July, Paul presented Jim with a big flat brown paper parcel. He opened it to find a framed picture of a horse. Jim was a bit bewildered and said,  “Thanks son, it’s a very nice picture.” To which Paul replied, “It’s not just a picture Dad, I’ve bought you the bloody horse, his name is Drake’s Drum, and he’s running at Aintree next Saturday”.

A Thoughtful Gift

Paul knew his Dad liked a little flutter on the horses, and decided on this unique present, which brought Jim much happiness over the years. What a thoughtful gift.

I know Paul will have the loving wishes of family and friends around the world when he celebrates this next trip around the sun.

Ruth and I join in sending our warm and fuzzies.
