Harry turned fifty years old recently.

 

 

The little girls from next door came round to wish him a happy birthday:

Here he is taking his daily sprint down the garden path:

Still going strong at fifty!

Wow Graham, 50 years old he's doing great the little girls look like they enjoy coming to see Harry. :) 

I'm sure Harry will still be as mischievous for years to come. :)

Happy belated birthday Harry. Was he obtained as a hatchling Graham or is it his 'gotcha' day lol?

Hi, Sue,

No, it's his genuine birthday date; Harry hatched on June 21st 1967

Wow, that must have been some event in the 60’s. I’m guessing you knew the parents owners?
