 Meeting of Blogging Friends - above Christopher and Gail = BelowTom and Jane

 Tom Wigley has had me guessing for ages what present he was 
bringing for me 3-4 years to knit. I won't go into details of what I was expecting? lol but it was a great beautiful surprise was when little Stewart 2 was presented to me.

 Big and Little Stewart giving their speech of thanks to all
You can just see my History boards in pics

Now - for the action - dancing

 My Son jumped off the stage to give me moral support.
My soul mate Julie.

 Family and friends made this evening go with a Big Buzz.

The  total amount we raised for Alzheimers on the night and with a giving page on the net was   £811.39.

I hope this gave you all a Buzz to, go to my side bar (near my shield) and see what the other Headbangers Buzz was.

Just an extra Photo (mine) 
This is me from the cake.

Thanks to all who donated.

What a great party, Stewart.
I can tell that it was a happy time !!
The idea for the cake was a splendid one (Yea, Julie!!).
What a wonderful cause for the funds thst were raised.
As I have shared the news with Jukie, my husband's Mother died of Alzheimers. It was a long goodbye.
I pray that a cure will soon be found.
As you approach your next birthday, may I go ahead and wish you a terrific year!!!!

What a fun time Mac, so wish I could have been there. That is a neat take on "What's the Buzz?".

Lew said...

Congratulations! Quite a "buzz" you had! And some generous friends helped you celebrate and contribute to a good cause.

Christopher Frost said...

Great that you saved 'mini me' from the fab cake, otherwise it might look like you're being a cannibal if you ate him.

Really pleased that you had a good time. I know that Gail & I did. And what a terrific about of money raised.

Linda said...

Belated Happy birthday to you, Stewart! Love the photos, and the penguins! :)

These are brilliant Stewart and A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU my friend. Julie did you proud with that wonderful party and I loved that birthday cake, says it all doesn't it? Congratulations on a very special event, especially with you giving a sizable check for Alzheimers. Very special family and friends you have there.
Wishing you a very happy birthday week.

A very Happy - though belated - Birthday!!
Looks like you had a wonderful time. Love the festive vest. Not every man can carry off wearing a vest. :)
The cake was perfect! Julie gets high praise for it!
So good to 'see' Tom and Jane again! Tom was one of my first blogger friends. Stewart 2 is a gem!
All the best wishes for another year filled with all that makes you happy! Hugs my friend!
