You think I post pictures other people make just to advertise my own day of birth.... or you think i"m that old,,,,,,,, or you think I'm that bald..... Well, one of these would be correct!

I have a couple of those and I am told I look like a pornographic film producer whenever I wear them.

We know the good of it but the bad of it might be too dark for me.

did you see the movie "Lock, Stock and two smoking barrels"? if not, a must see film, which stands in a direct connetion to my previous comment.
Thereīs a character called hatchet harry, a villain, who has an office in London - at the entrance you can read his brass name plate:

"Harry Lonsdale
Pornking"

very impressive, if you ask me - if you havenīt seen the debut movie of Guy Richie, than you should see it to understand the context of my association. However, a brilliant movie.

...but in the end, you might be right with the dark side :)

I did see that film a few times.  The first time in Los Angeles with the director and cast, since you are a fan of the film.  The younger members of the cast were pretty much playing themselves and after the screening they acted pretty much like those football fans they have in England and Europe. Talk about a film about the dark side; although presented in a casual, amused and upbeat way in the hands of Mr. Richie.  This presents a question:  can the dark side be lightened and remain dark?  I suggest in modern society we spend a good deal of time lightening the darkness and sometimes believe we have done so permanently.  Returning to this photo, at least we know those birthday candles signify the light in their lives.

You are very fortunate to have had celebrations of that kind.  When I saw this tableau it looked like a Norman Rockwell moment.

Indeed I am, my dear!!! :iconflyingheartsplz::iconloveloveplz::iconflyingheartsplz: Our family growing up was pretty big, and my grandparents (I lived with them and my mom :aww:) were the "glue" that kept the family together ... Our gatherings were just like those! :love: ... Now they're just an arsenal of good memories that I'll treasure in my heart forever!!! :iconflyingheartsplz::iconsweethugplz::iconflyingheartsplz:

This photograph was made at another person's birthday party - - the man in the shirt with the loud print.  I went to this party and didn't even know it was a birthday celebration at all since it was on New Year's day and some friends just asked us to stop by.
