It was 51 years ago today...


51 years ago today the Yorkshire Evening Post announced the arrival of the infant JerryChicken, a momentious occasion for me which was largely overlooked by the rest of the world.

Overlooked by everyone apart from both my parents larger families who instantly started a fight over what my middle name should be, each side of the family requiring that their family name be donated to the cause.

So it is that I bear two middle names, one from each side, no-one else that I know has got four names on their birth certificate apart from Prince Charles, so theres something else that he and I share.

Today I have taken the day off work, for if you read the post below this one you will also note that it is our wedding anniversary, yes I got married on my birthday, "it will save you having to remember a different date" she told me, in reality it means that I have to buy her something on my birthday, an inequality that I have never quite got my head around, there are some very suspicious and ingenious workings in this womans mind and if I live for another 100 years (which is quite likely, don't smoke, don't drink, don't dance, I'm going to live forever) then I will never, ever understand this role that I have in lifes great tapestry.

Well then... Happy Annivers-a-birthday!

I like the idea of bundling all my celebrations into one day. Too bad my birthday wasn't on Feb 14, cause then I could have set our wedding day for that too and REALLY killed a lot of birds - so to speak of course.
