My son Nathan is 37 today. Happy Birthday!

Jenny and Nathan, 1971

Monty Python and the Holy Grail - script
ARTHUR: Old woman!
ARTHUR: Man. Sorry. What knights live in that castle over there?
DENNIS: I'm thirty-seven.
ARTHUR: I-- what?
DENNIS: I'm thirty-seven. I'm not old.
ARTHUR: Well, I can't just call you 'Man'.
DENNIS: Well, you could say 'Dennis'.
ARTHUR: Well, I didn't know you were called 'Dennis'.
DENNIS: Well, you didn't bother to find out, did you?
ARTHUR: I did say 'sorry' about the 'old woman', but from the behind you
DENNIS: What I object to is that you automatically treat me like an inferior!
ARTHUR: Well, I am king!


Note the Frank Zappa album cover in the background.

You may comment but don't necessarily expect a reply!

At training last night Colin, Matthew, Bronwyn, David, Neil, Jacqui, Miranda & Jodie ran 3x1km intervals, while Jeni, Ruth & I jogged around. The very light rain started just as we finished, & is still falling. We have had about 6mm overnight. For tomorrow's cross country championships, I wonder if my spikes still fit?

Certainly those trousers don't.

    Listen - strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

  2. You look a bit Frank Zappa-ish yourself in that shot :)

  3. Wow. CDs were huge in the old days (as was hair).

    Happy 37th young man. I mean Dennis. Um, Nathan.

  4. Happy belated bday, Nathan!
