OG 168 For the man in your life.......

Many of my friends have birthdays this month, but the most important would have been my
husband Peter turning 60 on the 21st.  Its not a sad day - he would have loved a party and spent the night telling silly stories and topping up everyone's glasses and accompanying any smokers outside just to sit close by and inhale some secondhand smoke..........he was such a reluctant reformed smoker!!

It was no use making a card for him - he never noticed the front, only turning inside to see who it was from - so for this challenge I looked for something different.  The drawers were a chance find in a box of oddments, so I named each one for the loves of his life, and added a swing tag of his favourite movie, and a heart from me.  Just because.

And what do the drawers mean?  CT is me, SCT is our son, StKilda is the name of his football team, Mk1 is his first rally car, and 2002 is his last.  SJT is his brother, HHR is the company he founded, 23.4.79 is the day he left on a never-to-be-forgotten Overland tour of Europe that he never EVER stopped talking about, and CGS is his school.

Happy 60th Peter  R.I.P.
