12-12-12 Merry Christmas

I remember being in school and writing the date 5.5.55, and was fascinated by the numbers. The same thing happened 10 years later, 6-6-66, by then I had been married for four years and had a baby daughter. The next event was 7.7.77, everything in the garden was rosy, the sixties and seventies in London was just simply magical. The music scene, flower power, Hippies, Rock Bands galore, some of whom are still going. Like the Rolling Stones, and this year there is a 40th anniversary tour by Pink Floyd, they will be playing all of the songs from Dark Side of the Moon. and others. I will certainly be buying tickets for that event. The next date was 8-8-88 and the next ten years were very good to us and we prospered all the way through to 9-9-99.  By the time 10-10-10 things had taken a backward step monetarily, but we just enjoyed watching the grand kids grow up, I had never imagined that I would be playing football with my grand kids, what fun.  Then my eldest daughter moved to New Zealand and we followed in 2002, So 11-11-11 was Springtime in New Zealand. My youngest daughter and her kids followed the rest of us out here. So here we all are, Me my Wife of 50 years Wendy, two daughters, six grand kids, three of each variety, and amazingly one great grand-child. He is three years old, and guess what, I play football with him now. How amazing is that. Today is a sunny summers day, 12-12-12, we are still in New Zealand having fun and strangely enough am working again. Have set up a golf company, White Dragon Golf, web address http://www.whitedragongolf.com just in-case you want to visit us.

Merry Christmas Everybody.
