"I attended the rock and roll birthday party of my friend Diane last night. It was a lovely evening and me and Sheila were very happy to see all our other friends from St Mary's there as we hadn't seen them for four months.
Thank you all for your love, support and words of encouragement. The extent of your welcome overwhelmed me. Being a perfect gentleman and with her having lived on this earth for half a century, I couldn't possible reveal Diane's age, but suffice it to say, she has always looked younger than her years. I suspect that it's her love of all things retro from the 50's and 60's which keeps her looking the part.
I love all of this retro stuff from the 1960's that one sees hanging around street corners these days. Say what you like, but they just don't make things today like they once used to. I've never lost my taste for those classy lines of the 1960's models. Present the correct amount of money (a mere tuppence would suffice), and you could chat away to your love mate for a full three minutes before you were bleeped off. No wonder that we chaps learned to say all there was to say in three minutes flat in our chat-up lines. We'd have no difficulty 'speed dating' today. 'Will you? Won't you? Do you? Don't you?' and we'd still have talk time to spare. Those were the days." William Forde: March 29th, 2014.
