‘Thumbs Up’ for Wordless Wednesday

I’m going to be wordless for the next few days, as it’s hubby’s 70th birthday tomorrow, and our daughter is flying down from Johannesburg this evening to help her dad celebrate this important milestone. She’ll be staying until Monday, so my blogging will have to take a back seat.

What does one buy for a 70-year-old who says that he has everything he could ever want?Β  The answer is, two Nike running shirts, so that he can look much smarter on his 8km runs. I bet there aren’t many men his age who can runs this far without pausing for breath, so it’s thumbs up to hubby, and wishing him continued fitness and lots more good health in the next 70 years.


PS: I know this post isn’t wordless, but really, have you ever known me not to have something to say? Hubby would definitely say “Amen to that.”

  1. Yay! Happy, happy everything to everyone! What a wonderful milestone (tee hee) to share with family (and the rest of us). Have a wonderful time!

  2. Happy birthday to your hubby! Wishing you both long life!

    The thumb reminds me of a birthday cake we made for a friend of Sir’s – he accidentally cut his thumb off with a circular saw, luckily Sir was around and got him to a hospital, but he lost the thumb. It was his birthday the following week so I made him a cake with a big fondant icing thumb, decorated with lots of red bloody food colouring, for the occasion.

    The cake got the thumbs up.

  3. Congrats to Hubby from me and Yarri ! … IΒ΄m impressed of his running, 8km !! … So thumbs and paws up from us here in the northern part of Sweden ! … // Maria

  4. I have never been a runner (except the 100 yards at school) and given the state of my knees won’t be starting any time soon, but good on your hubby, he must be very fit! We have a 77 year old neighbour who goes out for a run every day!

    Hope hubby has a lovely day and enjoy the time with your family Sylvia. Another interesting restaurant maybe? πŸ˜€

  5. Wishing your hubby a very happy 70th and happy birthday celebrations for you all over the next several days. Thumbs up indeed! How wonderful that he is so fit! See you soon Sylvia πŸ™‚ xx
