Man at work ;-)

Happy Birthday Chad smile
Picturit: Indeed so, Cherry. I have to say that also Bill and Chris helped with the locks.
Happy Happy Birthday Chad...
don't tell me that they let him open the gated at the lock Astrid... he could have broken themgrin....petersmile
Picturit: This gentleman helped two ladies in a boat, Peter. They had to go through the locks and also Bill and Chris helped. The three of them picked me up from the airport and some fun.
Well, happy birthday Sir Chad... this took me by surprise...
Picturit: I think it did, Larry. Chad can be quite the gentleman, as Bill and Chris.
What a great shot! Love this photo of the Birthday Boy! Nice name placement!
Picturit: Thank you, Elizabeth. I went unexpectedly to the UK and Bill, Chad and Chris picked me up from the airport, we had some fun time together. There were two ladies in a boat and the rest you can fill in grin...
What a great way to celebrate this Chad-Lad, Astrid. I love it.

Picturit: Thank you, Ginnie. This was when I came unexpectedly to Lisl too and Bill, Chad and Chris showed me around.
It looks like he is having fun. Happy birthday.
Picturit: We had a fun time here, together with Bill and Chris. Michael.

The thing about Chad is that he can pretend to be really useful Astrid
Picturit: Surprisingly yes indeed, Chris. And he is such a gentleman. This was at the lock with those two ladies in a boat.

What an active man - a wonderful action photo fitting his day- Happy Birthday to Chad!
Picturit: We had a fun day out together with Bill and Chris, Philine. They were all helping to get some locks open and close.
Die hard werkende meneer van harte gefeliciteerd !
Picturit: Dat is één van onze Engelse vrienden, Marjolein. En "beroemd" op Shutterchance.
In September zien we elkaar weer. Vorig jaar was hij samen met zijn vrouw met de campervan een paar nachten in Gorinchem. Dit zijn leuke momenten.
I had no idea it was his birthday today. I probably should have known.

I remember this day well
Picturit: I have all birthdays written down and I love it when I have a picture too. In September I can add some new ones.

And I am still in my 60s Bill. Many thanks.
Picturit: I know, Chad.... ha...
This picture was taken in 2015. When you and Bill and Chris helped those two ladies in the boat to get through the locks...

Can't believe I wrote Bill Astrid. My simple brain linked Droitwich to Bill and I did not even realise I had written it until after I posted it.
Picturit: Same with me, Droitwich, Bill, Bacon Butties..... that is the default setting.

daar komt racht bij kijken Astrid

Picturit: Inderdaad, Willy. Dat is aardig sjorren aan die sluizen, alles gaat daar met de hand. Chad is een goede vriend van ons.
Willy, helaas was dit wat ik zag toen ik naar jouw blog wilde gaan: Het IP-adres van de server van https kan niet worden gevonden.
Another year around.... Have a great one!
Picturit: Indeed and time flies, Mary. I think he will celebrate in style.

oh i see now (from the other comments). i thought at first he was striking a pose, Astrid.
Did no one tell him it was locked?
I guess it's closing the barrier of a channel smile or not?

I understand that today is your Great Escape from years of toil and slavery! I wish you every happiness; you will quickly wonder how on earth you found time to go to work smile
Have a very happy and fulfilling retirement, Astrid!
