Three Years Today!!

It's three years today since my Father passed away.

I know that my Dad was a good man. He hardly got angry and greeted everyone that he met with a smile, even when he was in discomfort himself toward the end of his life.

I cannot think of a bad word to say about him, he was a very simple uncomplicated Gentleman and if I only posses just a few of his traits, then I should feel blessed.

I dedicate this post to him - Victor Richard Ducker 1918 - 2007

Closing Down?

Now that I've managed to reach the good old age of fifty and Facebook becoming more popular I was debating whether or not to close this particular blog down..................But my daughter Rachel (kindly without telling me) has up-graded and given my 'fightingfitatfifty blog' a brand new look.

So for at least the time-being, it has inspired me to carry-on. So thanks Rach you've done a wonderful job as always.

The above photo is Rachel in a corn-field making crop circles ? She's very creative you know!!!

Great Kids!!

I've just had both my kids at home for the Weekend. I just love it when they're together and enjoying each others company - reminds me when they were younger!!

I'm so grateful for having two fantastically talented and wonderful kids!!

50th Birthday Holiday

Well I can reveal to you, for those that might be remotely interested that the location of my special birthday holiday (re)treat is..... Tenerife.

Well I know it's not quite the exotic location that I've talked about in previous posts, such as China, Hawaii or the Canadian Rockies. But my wife Ali has booked us into a Sensatori Spa, (five Star) Resort, which to be honest is exactly what I need at this moment in time as I'm completely Knackered.

Ali and I are really looking forward to spending some quality time together and I know she's going to pamper me completely on my birthday and I'm also hoping she'll take me up to Mt. Tiede to see the sunset above the clouds, which is said to be an unforgettable experience.

I can't wait!!!
