We have thoroughly enjoyed spending a couple of short days with Isobel, Stan and Michael who flew over from NSW. They travel back tomorrow on the Indian Pacific Train which crosses the Nullabor Dessert. What an experience that will be!
Ruth also surprised Bill with a book she put together filled with photos of Bill and his family. Photos from when Bill was a baby, through his childhood, as a young man and then having a family of his own and now also a Grandpa. Although it seemed that even Bill could surprise Ruth still with a story or two about the photos in the book!
Jonathan spent some time telling Gracie about the photos of her Grandpa.
After Bill's long time friend Carolee said Grace, it was time to tuck in.
It wouldn't be a birthday without birthday cake! Rachel did a good job making and decorating the number 75 cake.

Couldn't resist this photo ;)
Happy Birthday Bill. It was a privilege to be able to celebrate with you today. I know you didn't want a fuss made, which is just like you, but sometimes we all need to be made a fuss of. Especially when you have the lived the amazing life you have and continue to live and we all think you are are wonderful. Our lives are so much richer for having you in them.
