HGD birthday report

Well I am happy to report that HGD remembered how to smile for the camera on his 92nd birthday.

But sad to report that he took a bad turn later in the day, and is now in hospital and very poorly indeed.

Big paws crossed for HGD.

    But oh dear, was it that drinking that made him go to hospital? I hope not. That's not good, I hope he's much better and at home again soon. I have my paws crossed too!!
