Being of a modest nature, @Luddite didn't want to have a fuss made over today, his birthday. I'm therefore taking the liberty to do so.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY @Luddite!
@Luddite will be here later on, after taking Geritol. Please wish him a happy birthday when you "see" him.
Even though he was a Luddite (please consult dictionary) upon becoming a customer, he has learned, with some difficulty, to answer incoming calls. Equally, though it was a challenge, he now knows how to enter a number in the dialer. Congratulations! @Luddite is a perfect example that one is never too old to learn.
@Luddite did ask me to be discreet about his age. I will therefore respect his wishes. Further, even if I wanted to disclose his age, I don't have enough fingers and toes to count that high. I can say, however, that he used to out-run dinosaurs hunting for a snack, and we're talking SPEED, SPEED, SPEED!
I would remiss in not congratulating @Luddite on becoming a Deputy Mayor. That is the highest position that he has ever attained anywhere, and it was HERE, at PM, that he achieved his pinnacle of success. I'm honoured to be a PM customer, knowing that another customer reached his life's goal while in our midst.
Once again @Luddite, Happy Birthday! May the next 100,000 years be as fruitful as the first!
As usual Martin is too kind; although which rarified kind remains to be clarified.
Learning can be a lifelong endeavour to which I encourage my inferiors. However, like other grumpy old men I do tend toward IQ rather EQ topics and so cannot be depended upon to be always as pleasant as Martin.
Speedy I was, sloth like I am. Time for nap.
