    This arrived in our INBOX, via Kathleen Robinson:

    “What an enchanting mountain slope to bask in your day off… wish I could have
    shared some of my birthday cake with you…I was born 20 years before this
    memory jogging, extraordinary video was made and it came on my birthday
    and made me smile and giggle and think back and sigh!!! Thank you all for this!

    Tonight my 93 year old, very dear friend took me out for a birthday dinner… he was
    a lead bombardier in WWII and was there on D-Day and tonight he wistfully spoke
    of how he would like to return to France…to Normandy and Flander’s Field and the
    Loire region to see the places where his missions took him that day and then to Paris
    to the Eiffel Tower where his pilot on the b-24 flew a low circle round it before heading
    back to Norwich after their last mission that unforgettable day (in ’44 he flew 31 missions) –
    his stories are always touched with such dignity…and they always transport me back in time…

    Tonight we covered a lot of decades…highs, lows, the good and the bad and one of the things
    that keeps him so “young” is his remarkable ability roll with the times and “keep moving” …
    He’s been a photographer for 70 years and still going strong!

    Those times of the 60′s…the Beatles, JFK, RFK, MLK were so much more than I ever realized
    at the time … day to day… it was such a thought provoking gift to be jolted back to that time by
    John, Paul, George and Ringo (and Ed)…then on to the year I was born…1945…it’s only been in
    recent years that I have begun to grasp the magnitude of that year…

    Time… oh my!!! Thank you all again for the amazing work that you do and for my b-day surprise!”

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KATHY!!!!!!!!!!!!
