I was lucky enough to share Birger's birthday with him and some friends. Mary and I got there late as it is an hour drive for me after work, but Birger was at work taking photos already:

I mostly shot with his D2X and The Beast so he could enjoy. (And I got to shoot that monster rig :D )

It was a fun time with a good friend and his family.

Happy Birthday Birger! :)

Good fun Harris

I'll bet he relished being around all those fmaily members and his good friends. It appears the new lens is working very well! So, was that 3rd shot taken in his living room? Reason for asking, is that I see a bunch of photo equipment sitting around in there. Looks like my house!
I'll close with a hearty Happy Birthday to Birger too!!!

Thank you all for your kind words.
This is what is wonderful about the forum.
It is almost like family.

Yes we had a blast at the club. All those Nikon cameras
and nobody complained about the steady stream of flashes.

I owe Backdoctor [Harris] a great thank you for taking photos
of the action.

Well I made my 80th birthday and expect to maybe have a few more.

For desert I asked the staff to prepare a large bowl of fresh strawberries
with real whipped cream and brown sugar on the side for everyone.

Today my close family produced a play with a part for each member.
Also video recorded
The setting was in Sweden in the old days of dirt floors at dinnertime when father came home with seven black boxes representing seven IBM Thinkpads. One had a mouse, another a dipole antenna, one with a window pane, one with a virus, and I think the last one had a telephone, stapler, pencils and paper.

Scripts had been prepared for all to follow.

Followed by another home made feed table.

Six years ago I wrote a short paper entitled " My life Growing Up".
complete with photos.
I would suggest to all of you who getting up in age to do so.

Many thanks to Harris for taking photos.
Here is a shot of him taken by my daughter with her D100 and 24-85 mm lens, just about full frame.

Gordon;
Thanks but I'm not looking to 90 unless I am in the pink of health and still able to press the shutter.
Talk about the life of digital prints.
Here is an old photo of me about 79 years ago from a shoebox.

Hi Birger, tell you daughter that she did well with the image in spite of the difficult subject matter. :D :D I am glad that you had a nice birthday, 80 is getting up there. We will expect something similar for the 90th.
Hey! I resemble that remark! 8)
