Babbington's Birthday!


Well would you believe it, yesterday was my birthday!

I would just like to thank all those people who made it such a wonderful day.... Hmm... yeah, so like I said, I'd like to, but... well... I can only assume that there must have been a postal strike and also a great deal of traffic on the roads or summat, judging by the turn-out!

Still, on the plus side, I was fortunate to receive literally 'some' cards!

Anyway, a special shout-out has to go to Neville, who contacted me on the eve of my Birthday, as he was due to engage in a hectic schedule of bus-spotting duties on my birthday itself. Don't worry, Nev - I made a good job of polishing off a bottle of red and a whole chocolate cake, sat on my lonesome in the central corridor that connects the North and South Wings here at WOP HQ.

Neville was full of beans for the duration of our conversation.
I can imagine the smell must have been quite stifling.

And, thanks to the wonders of modern technology, I am able to share with you, dear readers, the delightful gifts which our ever-aromatic buck-toothed anti-hero so very kindly sent my way. Even the packaging doubled up as a rather fetching and snazzy hat, as can be seen in the picture at the top of this post!

Nev - I still remain, quite simply, lost for words!

Who would have thought that Nev's Gran was such a looker?!
And with such an illustrious card-modelling career, too!

I can't wait to listen to this when I get a quiet moment
... and a cassette player!

This one, too!

Not sure what he was getting at with these...
but much appreciated, all the same!

WOP-approved, naturally!

And finally...

Nothing says 'Happy Birthday' quite like a good bit
of Spy Mission apparatus!

'Watch' this space for more spy-based updates soon!

Happy Burfday indeed! I imagine you've already played with your Moody Face family and the spy watch. That is the actual watch used in the new James Bond Film 'Quarter Of Allsorts'.
Hehe, it's all good.

I'm sure I sent that pan flute cassette to lobster-mitch for his last birthday you know. It looks most familiar. Oh no, my mistake, I sent it to him on his 40th a couple of years back. As for tape players - how else do you listen to music if you haven't got one of them?

So I'm 42 now then??! LOL, well I do feel it this week, but they say life begins at 40. I wonder if that's true, maybe not lol
How do you know about 'tape players'? I thought you still had gramaphones over there! Well, Grannysmith - a- phones...
Yo can't beat a bit of Pan Flutes, Metallica are going to use them more often I hear...
