I bet you did this to remind us of how old we are getting ! :D
Lets celebrate the wonders of Leonard and the Forum .
Thanks, all Forum members for sharing our gift of Leonard .
And thanks to Jarkko and all the others that made it possible .

(sometimes we do not need reminders...that we ache in the places we used to play )

50 years ago I was just a kid with a crazy dream, but now I am old and should know better. Fortunately the kid in me never went away. :D

ah, everyone, I can relate to your words :)

In 1967 I had left home far away for the first time to get an education in the world and was living on an island with no cars or many mod cons - lots of oil lamps and candles. A good place to look at the moon ;-)
A time of bikinis, beaches and bell-bottom trousers, ha! Yes, to know now what I didn’t know then....
Attitude is a self-fulfilling prophecy ~ me ...... The magic of art is the truth of its lies ~ me ...... Only left-handers are in their right mind!
