Last month, I wished my friend B. a happy birthday.

On August 21, B. and R. E will be celebrating their 62nd wedding anniversary. I only have one word for them, "WOW!!!!"

R. helps in the Mt Albert Baptist Church ESOL class, and this is where I met and got to know her. She knits baby jackets for the leprosy mission. As a volunteer, she had knitted 150 of those. 150???? Ka Pai good job R.

B. and R. do a lot of walking and they play tennis.

I am sending them by cyber a pot plant of white Cyclamen. It is a winter wonders for indoors. It has upswept and frilled petals and variably patterned leaves. I wanted a white, because it seems right to send a man white flowers. For you R., soft spring flowers.

You see a yellow cube on my messy desk. I didn't want to crop the photo because I want to show the cube. I use this cube for my ESOL students to play a game using which, why, what, when, where and how. R. would have seen this cube when she sometimes walk pass my class.

Thank you B. and R. for being such wonderful role models, and friend. Congratulations!

B. and R. are proud parents of John Edgar, a famous sculptor in New Zealand.

An inspiring gift for an inspiring couple who must be now in their 80s and still walking happily together?

This made me remember my late parents!
