Hitting 60 … My life in traffic signs (a plog) …

Today is my 60th birthday … 20/11/2011 … which is a pretty neat date on which to have a 60th birthday.
I have decided to mark this auspicious occasion with a PLOG … that is to say, a blog which is mainly pictures. In this instance I am illustrating my plog with traffic signs … always there but often totally ignored.
The subject of my plog is … my life in traffic signs …

I am asleep ... go away

20th November 1951 ...

On the bottle already ...

All of 10 ... just getting started ...

I still believe in Santa Claus

I want to be an engine driver

I become a man

I get married

It's all about understanding & compromise!!

Coasting along the motorway they call life

Raising the kids

Coping with a career

A few problems ahead

A marriage hits the skids ...

I am single again

All change ...

I get married again ... which is lovely.

and start the 1951 Club

So on we go ...

It will be exciting ...

and maybe a little too exciting at times ...

but what the heck ... JUST DRIVE !!
