    Sixty Five Today
     
    A day of tremendous import. Dad turned 65 today. He's now officially a twirly.

    Sixty-five and what did he get? A model kit Spitfire and model kit Honda two-stroke racer, to take up to the attic space he's been busy converting into a cosy workshop for himself. And a brand new record player so that the collection of fifties-sixties dancehall discs he discovered in a dusty box up there will live again. More like a young lad in his hideout, he's as happy as he's ever been, me Dad. In a sort of Airfix paradise, with a soundtrack by Acker Bilk.
