    Yabba Dabba Doo...I'm 64 today.

    One year for every square on the chessboard.

    Taking Mrs greenpawn out tonight - going to a pub where they have
    an open mic - I'll be playing the song.

    Pretty easy to play, McCartney ripped it off from 'Side by Side'.

    " Oh, we ain't got a barrel of money, Maybe we're ragged and funny"

    For an encore I'll do 'House of the Rising Sun' but sung to the tune
    of 'Amazing Grace' When one of the punters tells me I'm wrong
    I'll sing 'Amazing Grace' to the tune of 'House of the Rising Sun!'

    It works, try it.

    Gads, all these youngsters here on RHP. Happy birthday G.

    BTW, I had a band back in the 60's and we sang that song. Now I need one, Will you still feed me when I'm 84

    Just about precisely a year younger than I am, then.

    So that was secret of the hat...
    And this one:::
    Jenny Joseph’s “When I Am An Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple”

    Thanks boys - a whip round to get me a present would be nice.

    A book on endgames and a Beatles Wig would be ideal.
