Many happy returns of the day and welcome to the ranks of the septuagenarians.

I hope you had a great one.

Kindest regards
Jack, June and Andrew
Cheers, Jack

Happy birthday Alan - I must say you certainly don't look 70!

Happy Birthday, Alan - though I suspect it's already tomorrow in your area.

From me too, Alan.  And welcome to the Club.  May we all have many more years of your wonderful Chi ahead of us.
I'll sleep in my next life

May you have many more of them, Alan, and continue to keep us entertained, delighted and often frustrated with Chi !

Thanks everyone. Where I am we're now well into the next day, so the birthday seems like a distant memory already - or is that early onset dementia? Actually it was quite a memorable day, because the small party I had was done via the Zoom video conferencing service. There are some advantages to such a party - much less cleaning up, for one.

Jacki, the secret to retaining a youthful appearance is: never update your photo!

Good advice! I go one better and have no photo - if you asked me to describe myself it's blonde, blue eyes and busty. No photo could do me justice!! I'd love to see the faces of my dear in-laws when they read this and watch them get up off the floor from laughing too hard!!

Happy Today, Alan, whatever day it is.  Seventy is not nearly as traumatic a turning point as, say, Sixty, or Forty...what about never trust anyone over 30.  What about Thirteen?  not a great year.  Twelve?  Ten was a very good year.

Seventy's looking pretty good now!

Enjoy all to come!

Late greetings from me Alan, but none the less sincere. Your puzzles are keeping me sane while practising social distancing, and today I inducted my 10-year-old grandson into the fold. We played 7-by-many as a team, even though we're about 250 km apart, with both Chi and Skype on the screen, so we both have the same score of common words. So, yet another reason to say thank you for giving us Chi.
