As Time Flew By

AsH will be closing shop for a week to spend a good end-of -2011 holiday with the Rainbow Band.

We have all been ravaged by time but the heart and spirit is still strong and sweet.    The old days and the present have been well woven into a mellow and mad tapestry.

It's now time for a laugh and a cry.

I hope you lot are prepared to look after Darby and Joan.  We usually have tea in bed in the morning, a kip in the afternoon - so you had better be quiet after lunch.  Do remember our bedtime is at 10 and a mug of  Milo is a must.

And for everyone else have a happy break and may you  enjoy your cups of  Milo for every night in 2012.

to kakak and abang leceister, have a wonderful 2012 and beyond! when are you coming back?

Ah, Casablanca, was it Dooley Wilson who sang it? Play it, Sam. (Bogart never said "Play it again, Sam!"). They'll never make a film like that again. For one thing, all that fog at the airstrip will not be fog but smoke from the firepower of the invading army dragging in the Arab Spring.

But a happy new year to you both, nevertheless. Who was that lady who sang about blue birds over the white cliffs of Dover? Ah, Vera Lynn the Dame. "We'll meet again, donno where donno when..." That's another.

Brings tears to me eyes...

Thank you Kak Teh,

Hope you're enjoying life under the duvet this winter.

InsyaAllah we'll be home on 11 Jan.

Be good.

Aaaahhhhh AG,

We're just two incurable old romantics.

Yes that was Dooley Wilson's voice. I still prefer him to the other wannabes who can only hash out the old favourites.

White Cliffs of Dover? I thought they'd sold it to some Asian tycoon to pay for the RAF's strafing of Libya.

Have a good New Year too from both of us to you two and the cats.

And hey, that boy in the first pic at kota tinggi waterfall, his face turned to his right, he looks like me!

Stop nagging. And that nerdy kid in the first picture,unfortunately he looks and acts and behaves like you, but he was younger and sweeter.

My dear Roy,

Hearing your voice on 1.1.2012 was the best New Year treat.

Wishing you and yours the very best for 2012 from Unc and Teech

Thank you pakmat,

Truly the best years of your life is when you're past 60. You can be as cranky and weird as you like - you sort of have nothing to lose.... yeah!!!

Have a great 2012!
