How Do I look?

I celebrated another birthday a little over a week ago and, touch wood, I'm feeling fine. But how do I look?

 Picture by Immy, SW's little sister.

Well, on the down-side, I could probably do with gaining a little weight, undertake a serious search for my missing leg, consult an Ophthalmologist, and tackle the mould that's growing on my ears. On the plus side, my hair has regrown, I'm smiling and surrounded by all my latest ideas. I just need to figure out what they are. Nothing new there, then.

  1. And just look at the size of that smile Martin! It's lovely to think that Immy sees you as such a smiley grandpa.

    1. It's a lovely picture, isn't it?

      As you probably know, Nell, Immy is one of identical twins. She and Iris may be hard to tell apart, but their characters are totally different. More on that to come.

    1. It's all due to the back-combing. The hair, that is.

  3. Wonderful picture. My 3 year old granddaughter recently drew a picture with all the family in it in different colours. I was the HUGE pink person in the middle :-) x

    1. I know how you feel, Teresa. This latest work of Immy's is pretty flattering, so I'm going to settle for that.

      Incidentally, the twins are 3 years old, too. Must be an age-related thing.

    1. Oh dear, and here was I, thinking I might improve with age.

    1. Thanks Gabrielle. Knocked about is a common condition among grandfathers, I believe.

  7. Happy Birthday M. There seems to be some sort of birthday-related explosion going on all around you... you didn't try and light ALL the candles did you? ;-)

    1. Thanks, BB. Lighting the candles isn't the problem. It's blowing them out without catching my beard alight.
