Happy 64th Birthday, Dale!

We interrupt our regularly scheduled Eye Candy Friday for this breaking news: It’s Dale’s birthday today. Okay, it’s not really breaking news since I told you about it yesterday but it is an interruption of my usual Friday post.

First, the photo mosaic. All pictures of Dale taken since his last birthday.

And second, the perfect song for today.

When I’m Sixty Four

When I get older losing my hair
Many years from now
Will you still be sending me a valentine
Birthday greetings, bottle of wine?
If I’d been out till quarter to three
Would you lock the door?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I’m sixty-four?

You’ll be older too
And if you say the word
I could stay with you

I could be handy, mending a fuse
When your lights have gone
You can knit a sweater by the fireside
Sunday mornings go for a ride
Doing the garden, digging the weeds
Who could ask for more?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I’m sixty-four?

Every summer we can rent a cottage in the Isle of Wight
If it’s not too dear
We shall scrimp and save
Grandchildren on your knee
Vera, Chuck & Dave

Send me a postcard, drop me a line
Stating point of view
Indicate precisely what you mean to say
Yours sincerely, wasting away
Give me your answer, fill in a form
Mine for evermore
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I’m sixty-four?
Ho!

And third, my answer.

YES, I will still need you, feed you, love you and cherish you, forever and always.

Happy Birthday, Dale. And here’s to 64 more!
