60 And Not Out!

Monday, June 13th, 2011

Days go by into weeks and weeks add up to years. I am sure at some point in our busy lives we look back and can’t quite believe where time has gone! And so the big day came up so quickly when Andrew, owner of  The Ship Inn, Holy Island Northumberland reached that milestone of 60 years. This short blog is just to extend a big thank you to family and friends who made 13 May 2011 such a special day and in particular, also to give a big thank you to our staff at The Ship Inn who held the business together which enabled Andrew & Janice to get away to York Races and celebrate such a special occasion. Waking up on the morning of the 13th you look back with many fond memories, many happy and some sad, but most importantly still here and achieving 6 decades. A few more grey hairs, less dark hair, a senior citizen rail card, free prescriptions, but most importantly, life goes on. Thanks to Janice, my lovely wife, children, Jo (her lovely book of memories was so touching) Lisa and Matthew plus a great brother Karl for surprising me with a professionally bound red book of “This Is Your Life…. So Far” which was the emotional “icing on the cake!” Finally a big thank you to Jane & Kenny Noble owners of Ate O’clock Restaurant, Ousegate, York who dida fantastic job, as we understand how taxing it can be to do in one hit 24 meals and no two the same . so all in all a great day and thanks to one and all.
