The comments make me blush. I loved the party. You friends were a warm bath (as always) and gave me a lovely ol'55 birthday party. Felt so honoured that you all came to my place, from other towns in Holland, and all the way from Belgium and Germany.

A big thank you to Pascal who played a lovely set of songs of his Der Kleinze Prinz project. Amazingly good and varied. I especially like it when he does extra things with rhytmic knockings on his guitar, playing in differentl tunings, switching music things on and off with his feet, playing with a half length capo d'astro (never saw that before). Really lovely and a big, big thank you!!! (My son loved your concert very much as well!!)

Enjoyed the big Belgian bear Jan, who appeared dead on the couch at one point, but who convinced me that he was merely 'listening in a very concentrated manner'. Enjoyed his lovely lady Kathleen, dancing the night away on her black dancing ladies' boots, loved Stefan who explained to me why the new Cave is not so attractive to him (something to do with tension arches not finished and unfulfilled expectations, loved the company again of his lovey lady Leentje, always kind and good company indeed, loved the lively Claartje for her partying spirit, dancing in the spotlight on my patio, and of course singing Tango Till They're Sore in a beautiful voice.

Loved the always enthousiastic Gerda (that hat looked good on you!!! Good to see you dancing too!!. (and thanks for leaving the bed in a better shape than I ever do ;-). Your buddy Marco, enjoying the evening, sitting and lying flat on the floor, listening to the music, walking around with a happy grin, love you man.

My good friend Henk, with his winecoloured red lips when he finally left. You are not reading this Henk, but you made an impression with your knowledge of music, bands, concerts. Your friend Anja, whom I've met a couple of times now, it was a pleasure to see you at my place too.

The always attentive Géjé who brought me a lovely basket of 'Easter Eggs', bottles of a 'Spring' beer called Paas-ij, (Easter Egg) from a brewery I know very well fom ancient times ;-) when I lived in Amsterdam. I hid these Easter Beer-Eggs among the plants on my patio, for my friends to search for them. They were all found pretty soon!!

Loved to see two Dutch Dogs too: Peter, who wore the same Blue Suede Shoes I bougth recently. You old Rock and Roller!! And big bear Kees, of 'having-met-Tom-in-person-fame. Your fascinating story of the technological features of some modern spectacles will make me look in a different manner at these objects in the future!

Dancing BoomBoom, with his always great stories about music, bands and venues, it was good to see you on this second occasion at my place. Hope many more times will follow!

A big thank you to my Dog: thank you for putting up with us, crazy Raindogs who entered your territory! You're OK, you may stay.

Finally I loved it that my children could finally meet this bunch of crazy, great people that I talk about so much. They loved you!

And now, at the end of the day, I am gratefully looking back at the party. Very much enjoying all the attentive presents too, the Arno vinyls, the Cave cd/dvd, the beers and chocolate eggs, the Waits poster, the self-made photograph of Waits in Prague, the book by Theodor Holman from whom I have always wanted to read something, so I can do that now, the cd Son or Rogues Gallery, the book about how Jazz and Literature found each other. And last but not least the Randy Newman vinyl with the lovely and attentively selected title Born Again. Thank you friends, for everything! (And yes, you who were not there physically, but resting in the Sulky Tree, I felt your presence too, really!).

I'm not sulking after reading your post, Harry, I'm smiling. :) Sounds like you had the kind of birthday celebration you deserve!

Those photos make me yearn to see everyone again.

:clap: Well done, Pascal and Claartje! Thanks for sharing, Marco.
I like the exotic middle-eastern Festen music.
