I would like to wish a Happy Birthday, to a man who has done so much, for so very long, to keep our Triumphs running and running well, John Healy! John is 70 years young today. May he stay "Forever Young". smile

OK. Hot off the press. Apologies but I only took a couple of shots so as not to be a pain in the neck.

Here's that 70 year old birthday boy munching on his ice cream & cake. The red-eyed fan of "Mr. Moderator" in the background is bb.com regular btour.



Here's our hero eyeing a very big bottle of wine. Looks a little intimidated by it. Thats auctineer Jerry Woods wife Dee the old boy is flirting with. The little red eyed girl is one of John's grandkids. Nice, nice polite grandchildren and a wonderful family in general.



Anyway, loads of his family, old friends, and former employees showed up and I think he was quite touched by it all. Thank you Susan, & Tom for giving Mr. Triumph a great party.

Congratulaions and best wishes JH. Thanks for so much help.

An old Irish prayer for you.

That is a fair chunk of Irishman, I now understand how the Bridgeport can move when he is tightening Triumph exhaust stubs LOL.
