significant day

Well boys today I have reached 79! I only spent 8 years at sea but have total recall of those years. The other 71 were o.k. but not re-called with the same affection. I suspect this puts me with the vast majority on this site. Happy days.

Happy birthday Graham!

Re: significant day

Graham,
Firstly I’d like to sympathise if only 8 of your 78 yrs have been memorable.
During my marine career on passenger, bulk carriers and tankers I made a lot of friends and lost some, had good memories and some bad. Then I moved on and had some great experiences, like the birth of 3 lovely daughters and a wonderful wife, a new career and new friends. Watching my children grow up to be wonderful, responsible adults.
I would never comment on behalf the majority of people on this web, but i’m Sure some would think like me.

Re: significant day

Hi Kevin. Thanks for your reply. My intention was to highlight that over the years the memories I have came from all quarters, some good a few bad. The happiest go back to my days at sea. Regardless of the various ships the one common denominator was the men I sailed with. Lifetime friendships and mutual respect. Cheers
