Batch 64 Golfers should enjoy this tale!!!!
One day a man decided to retire…
He booked himself on a Caribbean cruise and proceeded to have the time of his life, that is, until the ship sank
He soon found himself on an island with no other people, no supplies, nothing, only bananas and coconuts.
After about four months, he is lying on the beach one day when the most gorgeous woman he has ever seen rows up to the shore.
In disbelief, he asks, “Where did you come from? How did you get here?”
She replies, “I rowed over from the other side of the island where I landed when my cruise ship sank.”
Amazing,” he notes. “You were really lucky to have a row boat wash up with you.”
“Oh, this thing?” explains the woman. ” I made the boat out of some raw material I found on the island. The oars were whittled from gum tree branches. I wove the bottom from palm tree branches, and the sides and stern came from an Eucalyptus tree.”
“But, where did you get the tools?”
“Oh, that was no problem,” replied the woman ” On the south side of the island, a very unusual stratum of alluvial rock is exposed. I found that if I fired it to a certain temperature in my kiln, it melted into ductile iron and I used that to make tools and used the tools to make the hardware.”
The guy is stunned.
“Let’s row over to my place,” she says “and I’ll give you a tour.” So, after a short time of rowing, she soon docks the boat at a small wharf. As the man looks to shore, he nearly falls off the boat.
Before him is a long stone walk leading to a cabin and tree house.
While the woman ties up the rowboat with an expertly woven hemp rope, the man can only stare ahead, dumb struck. As they walk into the house, she says casually, “It’s not much, but I call it home. Please sit down.”
“Would you like a drink?”
“No! No thank you,” the man blurts out, still dazed. “I can’t take another drop of coconut juice.”
“Oh, it’s not coconut juice,” winks the woman. “I have a still. How would you like a Tropical Spritz?
oman announces, ” I’m going to slip into something more comfortable. Would you like to take a shower and shave? There’s a razor in the bathroom cabinet upstairs.”
No longer questioning anything, the man goes upstairs into the bathroom. There, in the cabinet is a razor made from a piece of tortoise bone. Two shells honed to a hollow ground edge are fastened on to its end inside a swivel mechanism.
“This woman is amazing,” he muses. “What’s next?”
When he returns, she greets him wearing nothing but some small flowers on tiny vines, each strategically positioned, she smelled faintly of gardenias
“Tell me,” she begins suggestively, slithering closer to him, “We’ve both been out here for many months. You must have been lonely. When was the last time you played around? She stares into his eyes.
He can’t believe what he’s hearing. “You mean…” he swallows excitedly as tears start to form in his eyes,
“You’ve built a Golf Course too?
Wish you a very happy birthday fabulous

Happy Birthday to you my dear faithful friend Rajes !
A True Friend Indeed , and In Need – in good times, and not so good times
over the past 55 yrs .
We did lose touch briefly, for about 10 yrs- when we migrated around the
world, but, met again in 1982- at the exam hall in Toronto when we both had
to write some stupid exam !
Rajes- you were always there for me, and I was always there for you, and
even did the Eulogy for your mom so many years ago .
We were Intern ( me ) and Resident ( you in Ob/ Gyn ) back in 1985 at
the Toronto East General , and crammed together , for yet another stupid
exam, along with Ananda and made it through in july 1986 !
And here we are -now in our 70’s thinking of all those good times gone by,
and boy oh boy don’t we ever have time to think !
I just visited you a few wks ago, and when I saw the youngest in the
family- Rajan with his wife and three very grown children visting you from
Australia, – the whole ‘ hostel days’ seem to roll by, in my mind, as I if
on a ‘video mode ‘ when your mom would come to see you, all the way from
Batti, with all your siblings and your mom carrying little Rajan !
How time has gone by, how time has treated us – good and not so good .
But, , the main thing is- YOU were ALWAYS there for me – for which I am
eternally grateful .
Very Happy Birthday, Lots of Love, Blessings andn Prayers to you , My
Your Loving Friend- Deepthie
Many happy returns of the day Rajes🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹
As you celebrate your birthday today
Ranjit and I wish you many happy returns of the day.
May you be blessed with everything you wish for ,
Today everyday and for evermore.

Wish you a happy birthday with contentment and Joy

HI my Dear Gaspar !
First of all let me wish you a Very Happy Birthday and may you enjoy this
day with your family and friends .
It is amazing- how we have kept in touch- all the way from old school days
in the early 60’s through the Cath Students Fed back in Colombo , to this
day, nearly 55 yrs !! –
O MG – I feel soooo old !!- yet grateful, we are still alive and keeping
in touch , and meeting when ever we can .
You were always that funny guy, ever ready with a good joke, a funny act,
a good loud laugh, to cheer up any half dead being, yet, can be serious when
the occasion arrises .
I do remember when I visited your place at Chichester- back in 1996 or so
, when I stayed a night at your place , and you and Kamala gave me such a
good meal in real style !
Then, your older daugheter’s wedding in SL, then, you and Kamala visited
Mississauga to see your sister, and visted us too .
Seeing you at the RU- in Beruwala was just wonderful, not to mention ‘after
the party fun ‘ with a few of us , you, your trusty pal Shauket !
I love the photo of you and Shauket- taken in UK – then ( 25 yrs ago ) and
now – nothing has changed – both of you just as crazy as ever !!!
Ofcourse, the most memorable moment for me on that Friday Night BBQ/
Concert/ Dance was when you sang that special song for Sweet, Sweet
The Official Photographer- captured that poignang moment very well .
Anyway Gaspar- let me Wish You a Very Happy Birthday , and give a hug to
Kamala from me .
Much Love, Blessings and Prayers to you and Kamala –
Happy Birthday Gaspar💐💐💐
As you celebrate a new year today
Our good wishes for you are there to stay
May the good Lord bless and keep you
Till we meet again at the next RU.
Ranjit and Praxy
