Thanks Shelley,

I thought I'd turn it into a celebration, this is from the BI board post


Anyone who can make it to Jesmond cricket club in Newcastle from 7PM to 11pm on the night of 31st October is invited to a Halloween/going away party.

Fancy dress is optional but appreciated. It will be more of a drop in and drink & snack than a fully catered party as I have no how many will come and how many would rather dance on my grave.

My friends from Tango are putting on dancing and a few performances, two of my teachers danced in Flavia & Vincents “Midnight Tango” tours, so they are of top quality. People from the Allotments, work colleagues, friends and family have been invited.

I was going to have a quiet 60th birthday party early in November, I just decided to upscale and advance the date.

I am a keen Tango dancer wearing some of my (100+) gorgeous Hawaiian Shirts to the Milonga, one group of colleagues have "secretly" asked my wife if they could wear some, others will be wearing false beards or Bow Ties (you can tell I'm not a slave to fashion), so I feel quite flattered. It just keeps getting better and better!

While I have planned a Green funeral, cardboard box under a tree, but they will have to drag me every inch of the way! kicking and screaming.
