  1. As capable as the world is when it comes to bad shit and misery, it makes me happy to see that people can still do that sort of thing =D>

    That having been said, I can't even imagine it. SIXTY EIGHT YEARS?!@
  2. Wowers, that's some sort of record, surely :shock:. Congratulations to them.
  3. Great effort !!
    Congrats to them
  4. Nice to hear a good news story! :)
  5. Congrats to them.
  6. That's amazing!

    Do birthday BJ's get better as the years advance?
  7. Yep. No teeth.
  8. ahhh good on them, good effort
  9. Well done. Epically good matchup 68 years ago. I wonder if anyone these days will be able to say that in another 68 years?

  11. plasea excsue my tipingk I hade to terr my eys uot.
  12. Sorry Grue!

    Out of interest, they don't happen to be Catholic, do they? If so, when they hit the seventy mark write a letter to the pope and ask for a blessing. We did that for my very, very religious grandparents when they hit 50 and they received a beautiful hand written and sealed parchment from the papacy. Never saw the old bugger so happy again.
  13. Greta Idea -- I am sure the other faiths have a similar thing
  14. Doubt it. No other religions have a papacy. You already get a letter from the queen when you reach 100.
  15. Well done to them. Me and the missus will have been 10 years on Fri, so that just seems huge!!


  16. Hm, not catholic, but I should check int something like that.
