Happy Birthday, Grant

Today is my DH Grant's birthday.  

He is 50

That's a big number,
 but it is just a number.
He isn't really 50, he is a boy (usually 14 if his sense of humour is anything to go by) who has a zest for life, a thirst for knowledge, and a passion for his family. 

Happy Birthday, my darling Grant!


Grant shares his 50th birthday year with Ken.

You know, Barbie's Ken.

He might have more hair than Grant but he's got a lousy taste in shirts!

Happy birthday to Grant. What a gorgeous photo, is that a holiday snap or near to where you live?
Those creatures are usually so shy!
Have fun

Hi Susan, sadly not near where we live! While on holiday in Devon we went to a gorgeous otter sanctuary where there was a nature walk. Deer, wallabies, ducks etc all wandered about happily - it was a bit Disney-esque how relaxed all the animals were around us!

50 is looking young from where I am sitting. I can see it retreating in the distance. Wish your husband a very happy birthday, he sounds lovely and all that Italian blood too, some people just drop lucky.

Happy Birthday to your lovely hubby! Age is simply a state of mind and most men are stuck somewhere between 5 and 15!

Ditto all the above!! ;-0 Men are so funny with their blend of grown-up bodies and responsibilities, and their kid minds. Gotta love 'em!

See you soon

Happy Birthday wishes to Grant. My honey turns 50 next month too! And yes, a little boy still resides in there. I used to wait for him to grow up, now I hope it never goes away. The little boy is so much easier to figure out than the big, mature man.

Many Happy Returns!

Well, aren't you a nice wife geting your man a baby deer for his birthday! Ha!

Happy Birthday to Grant - I love the fact that Grant acts 14 - my hubby is exactly the same - never ever grown up - keeps me young despite the fat he's almost 11 years older than me!

Hope you're having a great day!
