(ahem! *choke*) Have a good party and a good laugh, my friend. Many happy returns of the day! Reply Stuart Hyde - shpics March 7, 2015 at 9:07 am Thankee kindly Ma’am…..You will have gathered from the delay that it was indeed a good one!! Now I need to give my poor liver a rest! 🙂 Reply Ben Rowe Aperturef64 March 5, 2015 at 4:52 am A really interesting picture for your Birthday, In some ways it is hard to look at because of the eyes yet the cool tone makes me want to investigate more. Happy birthday. Reply Stuart Hyde - shpics March 7, 2015 at 9:10 am Thanks Ben 🙂 It is quite an uncomfortable image isn’t it? In retrospect I see something a bit robotic about it………. Funny how sometimes your impressions of an image can change. Reply Ashley Lily Scarlett March 5, 2015 at 6:18 am And again: Happy birthday, Stuart! I hope you had a great day. x o x Reply Stuart Hyde - shpics March 7, 2015 at 9:11 am Maybe a little too good……..I look ten years older this morning, never mind one. 😦 Reply suej March 5, 2015 at 8:09 am Yikes, Stuart…but first let me wish you Happy Birthday… It’s the eyes in that image. I just don’t do creepy eyes, or eyes in any way abnormal….the blind lady In Nic Rooeg’s Don’t Look Now gave me the abdabs, and that was way before the denouement…… Reply Stuart Hyde - shpics March 7, 2015 at 9:13 am I still have the occasional nightmare featuring that film…… Now if I’d worn a little red mackintosh as well, that really would have freaked you out!!! 🙂 Reply suej March 7, 2015 at 9:37 am I would have been über freaked, not slept a wink for over a week, and probably become a gibbering wreck….thanks for sparing me that Stuart Hyde - shpics March 7, 2015 at 9:42 am heehee…… suej March 7, 2015 at 9:45 am 😛 tesid2014 March 5, 2015 at 9:19 am happy birthday stuart will have a drink with you when we see you next xx Reply Stuart Hyde - shpics March 7, 2015 at 9:14 am You know I never touch the stuff……………. 🙂 Reply janemorley2014 March 5, 2015 at 9:37 am Joyeux Annive….. hang on a minute – may I refer you to my previous comment…. Hope you have a spiffing day sh and that the eyes get better soon 🙂 🙂 Reply Stuart Hyde - shpics March 7, 2015 at 9:15 am Merci Madame…..:-) I’ve bought drops….should do the trick! Reply janemorley2014 March 7, 2015 at 9:48 am I think you may be beyond help 🙂 Stuart Hyde - shpics March 7, 2015 at 10:00 am Many a true word spoken in jest….If ever anyone were beyond help…… marina kanavaki March 5, 2015 at 11:33 am Happy Birthday, Stuart! 🙂 Reply Stuart Hyde - shpics March 7, 2015 at 9:17 am Thanks Marina…. 🙂 Celebrations stretched into 48 hours……..It’s probably just as well it only happens once a year. 😀 Reply Alan and Priscilla March 5, 2015 at 12:05 pm Happy Birthday from Gran Canaria….brace yourself for the vocal rendition….!!!! Reply Stuart Hyde - shpics March 7, 2015 at 10:47 am Haha…..Thanks, I’m still getting over it. 🙂 Reply nannus March 5, 2015 at 8:42 pm Happy birthday! I just hope its not the university that is turning your eyes like that 😉 Reply Stuart Hyde - shpics March 7, 2015 at 9:18 am 😀 Hahaha NO….But it is turning my hair grey! Reply nannus March 7, 2015 at 9:49 am Unfortunately, I think the greying of hair is just a matter of the age. Maybe you should not blame the poor university. My own, instead of turning grey, are simply dropping out 🙂 Stuart Hyde - shpics March 7, 2015 at 10:07 am You’re probably right…It’s greyer today than yesterday and I haven’t even been to Uni….Oh dear! You may well be the best off of the two of us Nannus …No hair can look both fashionable and youthful…White hair simply looks ancient!! equinoxio21 March 6, 2015 at 1:11 am ‘those the new google glasses? grafted permanently? 🙂 Reply Stuart Hyde - shpics March 7, 2015 at 9:19 am A bit more goggle than google……. 🙂 Reply equinoxio21 March 9, 2015 at 11:16 pm ‘hope those “goggles” are equipped to find their way to “the next whisky bar”! 🙂 Stuart Hyde - shpics March 9, 2015 at 11:40 pm Oh show me the way to the next whisky bar, No don’t ask why, Oh don’t ask why…… For if we can’t find the next whisky bar, I tell you we must die….. I tell you, I tell you, I tell you we must die…… I do like a nice obscure reference… 🙂 equinoxio21 March 10, 2015 at 7:31 pm I have found those obscure references to work amazingly well. I heard the doors for the first time at a party in 1970 in Ethiopia. A long “ways” away. Yet through blogging I have found that many, many people share the same memories all over the globe, from India to Africa, to Europe. And a simple phrase like that can be recognized anywhere. Thank you for completing the reference and let’s hear it for Morrison and Manzarek! 🙂 Stuart Hyde - shpics March 20, 2015 at 9:35 pm I’ve not heard the Doors version for eons..(all of my Doors records are on cassette, how old am I?) haha…. But I played the Bowie version only a few nights before your post….My first experience of the song was in Berlin, a few years before the wall came down, when it was sung by an MC in a Kudamm cabaret club, half in German half in English English…..Magical!
