I’m Still Standing

On my birthday 31st October we drove up into Central Otago, hung around in Alexandra for a few hours and then drove as far as the tiny centre of Tarras. On our way we spotted a sculpture out in a farm paddock that I haven’t seen for a long time. Sweet! New Zealand, in Spring.

  1. A dozen years later and this sculpture still does look really good. May you, my dear young lady, still be standing for dozens and dozens and dozens and more years to come. When you get to my age, you too might sing this song as I now do, “I’m still standing, not as straight as I did…”! Belated Happy Birthday wishes! Thank-you!

  2. Nice that it was still there. A true survivor but I bet his fingers are a bit rusty for the piano. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Can’t remember if I wished you a happy birthday or not, so in case I didn’t…Happy Birthday, Liz!. An iif I did, this’ll just make it last a bit longer…always a good thing. ๐Ÿ™‚
