As readers are aware, I was in Canberra last weekend for the 90th birthday celebration of my father in law. Noel. I have previously mentioned that he is a sprightly nonagenarian who drives, does his own shopping, cooking, washing, cleaning, still studies and still has all his faculties. Some pics of the birthday celebration . . .

An amazing cake, made by Jess, that reflects Noel's lifelong interest in jazz (at age 17 he had a one hour jazz radio show in Brisbane.
Happy Birthday, Nellie.
