Now we are five

Charles Cowling

Five

 

Ooh, the conjurer’s just arrived. 

Yes, it’s all party hats and facepainting over here at the GFG-Batesville Shard. Jelly, pizza fingers, crisps and ice cream. A whole lot of bunting. 

Our blog is five years old today and we’re awaiting the arrival in his much-loved Daimler DS420 of our patron and sugar-daddy, Sir Basil Batesville-Caskett Bt, CDM, OTT, RLSS (Bronze). There’ll be speeches and cup cakes, party games and lemonade. 

At five, believe it or not, we’re one of the longest-running blogs in Funeralworld, our longevity exceeded only, we think, by Margaret Nelson’s blog, Dead Interesting. As we look back, we… Nah, can’t be bothered with any of that retrospective, self-congratulatory stuff. Tomorrow’s what matters.

Har har – love that fulcrum moment when the wind ruffles the formal occasion. How apt, on your fifth tassel-tweaking birthday, Charles.
Rock on, here’s lead in your pencil, and not your coffin.
Thank you for all that you find and share with us. Loadsa. james

Happy Birthday – your greatest achievement? You make us all think.

That alone makes it worthwhile.

Happy Birthday GFG! You’re an inspiration and lots of us wouldn’t be doing what we’re doing without you. Keep pounding!

Happy birthday GFG. I hope Sir Basil remembered the presents (and didn’t pull rank in the sack race this year). Of course what we need now is a new five year plan…
