A message from Jet…

As a non-subscriber to what I believe is known as ‘Social Media’, I was beginning to think that I had finally managed to evade the annual fusillade of greetings to which I have become accustomed in recent years. Greetings, in acknowledgement of an event of some seventy eight years distant, to which I had then been involuntarily tethered.

That is, until social media savvy Ava, on the morning of the 26th last month, had informed me that there was a new fusillade winging it’s way towards me, through the wonder of international electronic communications.

The aforementioned evasion being, not for the expected greetings likely to be contained therein, but more for reminders of my ever advancing years, thereby implied.

Of course, the first seventy – since that distant day – weren’t so bad. They had their up’s and down’s but on the whole, they were mostly quite enjoyable.

During the latter eight however, there has been a tendency I had not anticipated, to develop a sort of ‘Canute’ mentality, in which one strives to hold back the waves of time. You find you just can’t do some of the stuff you used to, and so the past seems so much more agreeable than the future ever could be. Something I guess we all get to know in time.

However, despite my misgivings, I was enormously cheered as I began to read through the scores of warm-hearted messages which all referred to my birthday. Since I’ve only ever had one of those – and I don’t think I could face another one – I soon realised that I was being wished for more of the past. So, to all of you who were involved in this year’s fusillade, my sincerest thanks to you for that, and for your generosity of spirit and good humour. You are, as best I can compile it:

There are others who’s names were somehow corrupted or filtered out by systems I don’t pretend to fully understand, but to you also, whoever you are, my deepest thanks.
