Of course I know that Barrie will be treating you to a champagne dinner tonight. Enjoy, we'll all look forward to a picture.

Re: Happy Birthday Anne 30-04-2019

Very many thanks for all the good wishes for my birthday. I really did enjoy the day and was exceptionally lucky to have a sunny one! Our lunch was at a favourite Italian restaurant we try to visit when in London - we may well be back there in the next couple of weeks as my cousin and his wife are arriving for a visit from Adelaide. He has not returned to the UK since emigrating in the early sixties so I think he will be surprised to see the changes - not least in the town where we were both brought up - Watford!

I did have the offer of an E-M1X, Phill, but I have not been able to handle my present camera - the E-M1 II with a battery pack attached so the new camera was always a non-starter for me. Barrie and I do a great deal of walking with our cameras/bags and it would just kill the enjoyment for me. However I have opted for a delayed birthday gift I am awaiting the arrival of the anticipated O-MD E-M5 III - I am hoping this will be the ideal choice!

Kind regards,
Anne

I googled your lovely restaurant, lots of pics , love the ambience, the food must be devine, Italian cuisine was always my favourite.
If they're of my vintage they may well want to see the Beatles after dining ...

Yes, they (and we) are of the vintage of the sixties Beatles and going back even further, growing up in the UK, I and most of my friends, were of two camps - Cliff Richard or Elvis! I was definitely more Elvis and still play his music to this day.

I don't think it was clear enough for you to recognise (it's just that we know the pic well) but showing on the restaurant website is a pic showing the daily 'specials' board and to the right of that a pic (within a pic!) of Mick Jagger posing with the owners of the establishment when he dined there many years ago!

Regards,
Anne
