2: Bells and East Dean Grammar School XV's | Our Pete, just a few memories. You have all heard about the people that raid the fridge at night! Our Pete (cos we didn't have a fridge) used to raid the larder; it was a fore runner of 5 pieces of fruit a day, only he left the apple cores outside on the bedroom window ledge. This must have started his liking for bedroom windows, as he was always falling out of them in Jersey or climbing back through mine in the early hours. As with the rest of us he has always loved his work! Once he and our Roger set off down Cats Hill 2 on a bike to Reeds at Lydbrook, only for the bike to go into a speed wobble, they both fell off, with Roger coming off worst with a severe gravel rash (he still has the scars), as he would have been late for work Pete walked on and left Roger, mangled bike and all. He must have been the "Ring Leader" of all the troubles as our Mam tried to stop any fight or argument as she always shouted out our names in this order; Peter, Roger, Neil, Ian, Keith (never Alison or Martyn). One final thought, our Pete is the friendliest, good natured, easy going person you would ever want to meet. I'm proud, as the rest of us are that he is one of "OURS". Happy Birthday Love Neil. P/S. He has promised me, he is giving up smoking today?
3: Early Memories of our Pete Some of the things Pete used to put us up to when we were youngsters... Walking over the bridge over the Wye at the Cable Works, Lydbrook and onto the Railway Tunnel, pitch black with no torches, feeling our way along the wall and shouting "Manhole" every time we came to a recess in the tunnel wall. Walking over the viaduct at Lydbrook, it was almost falling down at the time. Sitting in a boat tied to the bank just above the Kerne Bridge, with the river in full flood, practically washing it away. Belting down Cats Hill on our trolleys, made from pram wheels and wood. Sledging down the field on our sledges that had runners lined with toffee tin steel crashing into the fence at the bottom. I remember you sticking up for me practically on my first day at Grammar School, a third year pupil had just blown up a crisp bag on my head for fun and you soon sorted him out!! Thats our Pete, probably no different now!! Best Wishes on your 60th. Keith | Happy 60th Pete Best Wishes Martyn and Family | Happy 60th Birthday Bro' All the Best Ian

15: TWINS | Well Pete that is three of us who have made sixty years on planet earth , the way you and I were in our teens that's somewhat of a miracle in itself. We were brought up hard but it did us good in the end. Take a look around yourself now and see all the family and friends here to celebrate your birthday. Think that says it all! Luv you Bruv. Roger. | My Uncle Pete is a great bloke always willing to help and give you a hand when you need somebody. He can always see the funny side of things and has always got a funny story, although when he took up reviewing local Chip Shops he took it too serious!!!! Gary
18: Reaching the Age of Sixty When you were young and happy, you had a lot of fun, Days seem to last forever, as you played out in the sun, You never thought of growing old or having aches and pains, But in a blink the years have flown, and the sun has turned to rain. Now that you are sixty you will start to feel the strain, Your bones will start to creak, and you'll need a zimmer frame, Your teeth begin to fall out and you will find it hard to eat, You'll have to wear your dentures and forget about the meat. At night you will be up and down going for a pee, And your eyesight will start failing until you cannot see, Your hair will start receding and the wrinkles they come too, And you will have to take "laxative" to go to the loo.
19: Now we don't want to depress you, because today's a special day, So listen very carefully and follow what we say, You must give up all the night life and cut out all the booze, Get up nice and early and later have a snooze. Take it nice and easy and be in bed by eight, Make sure you have some exercise and don't put on more weight, Never get excited or make your heart run fast, and s*x should be forgotten or next time could be your last. So remember, be good, stay healthy and lean, And you will live to get a telegraph from the queen, This poem is just a bit of fun, You will probably live to one hundred and one.
20: To my Daddy, A little girl needs her daddy to love her with manly charm, to soothe her when she's hurt and keep her safe from harm. A girl needs her dad to show her a man who's good, to help her make right choices as only a father could. A women needs her father just to be aware, he'll always be there for her to protect and to care. You've been all these things dad I hope that you can see, how much I treasure you, you mean everything to me. Happy 60th Birthday, thank you for all that you do, for all that you are and for all the help you give me. The only man a girl can completely depend upon is her dad and I am SO lucky that I got you. All My Love Lucy xxx | Happy Birthday Pete, Lot of Love on your big day From Roger, Cheryl, Kirsty, Katie, Matty, Nicky, Archie, Louie, Ella, Evie and Mark | The Wish for you this Birthday is just another way of saying just how much you mean today and everyday Love Alison xx | Happy 60th Birthday Pete Lots of Love Alison, Tim, Adam, Andrew & Michelle | To a Wonderful Father-in-Law Sending you lots of love and a great big hug.......Debs xx
21: Well done Pete you have reached sixty and still full of youth (or is it lager!) From Pete, Sheila & Danny | To a "GREAT" Brother and Uncle. Have a fantastic day, you deserve it!! Lot of Love from Keith & Caroline, Sam, Jase, Rhianon,Meg,& Noah Laura, Russell, George & Heidi | Dear Dad. Well you have made it to the big sixty. I have know you now for 33 years so I feel qualified enough to write some words about you. I have fond memories of my childhood with you and mum, I remember the many times you took me and Lucy to the woods to carve our names into trees and when you would let me sit on your lap to steer the cabstar. I remember you taking me to work with you on saturdays and letting me play in the sand, as we both know those days are over now! I remember you and mum spoiling us at christmas, we always had everything we wanted. There are just too many memories to write down here, but the one I will always remember is great family holidays to Westward Ho and you wearing your red speedos, when you were the man!!! Later on became work buddies, it was tough at times but I'd like to think we worked well as a team, Happy and Craig had nothing on us!! It has been down to your perseverance and patience at times I am still scaffolding now. A lot of people comment to me "the apple does not fall far from the tree" and they are right, we are alike but I am glad of it! You have been to me a Great Dad, Best Mate and Best Man and now a Wonderful Grandad to my daughter. Now I am looking forward to watching you lie around on the sofa, complaining about how many times mum is going to paint the living room walls for another 20 years at least. Love you Dad. Ryan. | Happy Birthday Love from Gary, Michelle Millie, Marcie & Neve
