|P & O Ferries The Pride of Hull having just left King George Dock passing Paull sailing to Rotterdam on the evening tide|
Don't walk behind me; I may not lead.
Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.

Today is a special day. For a number of reasons. Today is the birthday of such celebrated people such as actor Zachary Quinto, comedian Jon Culshaw, Australian cricketers the Waugh brothers and composer Marvin Hamlisch to name but a few (and there are some infamous ones too!)

Today is my birthday.

I have had a lovely meal with friends in a local hostelry followed by a quick jaunt in the fresh air at a tiny but significant village on the north bank of the Humber called Paull. I was even bought a birthday cake which was lovely and thoughtful.
Do you know what - the sun shone all day!
Friends are such an important part of my life and wish I had made more in my earlier years. Today, I have much to be thankful for and much to look forward to and my friends are part of that journey.
Have a great week ahead at work or at leisure and don't forget - smile at someone unexpectedly every day and spread some happiness around the place - you might make a friend.
