Adoptive Parents got married August 27, 1952 (68-years ago).


I have spent TOO much time in the U.S.

I try to mark this day, viz., August 27, every year with a post. To be honest it is only meaningful to I and I am the only one that cares,

Wow. I left Ceylon 53-years ago. As I get older the percentage of my life I spent in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) shrinks.

Left from Katunayake Airport which in 1967 was pretty small — just one, ‘one-room’ building. Quite a few people came to see us off. It was night. I think the flight left around 9pm. We left on a Pan Am 707. My first time in a jet — though I had flown quite a bit on DC-3s. I had always liked the 707 and it is still one of my favorite planes today. First stop, for a day, for Athens, Greece.

44-years, to the day, I walked into IBM! Wow. Much water has flowed under the bridge in Romsey.

P.S., Lord Mountbatten’s assassination was on August 27 — in 1979. I was still at Hursley and remember it well.

Numbers NEVER lie!

Plain as day, $2,017 when I posted on Tuesday, $2,245 TODAY. SMILE.

Yes, I bought SOME TSLA. My kids already had SOME TSLA.

I bought my first TSLA, 3 (4 maybe 5) years ago, at $380 a SHARE. People told me I was CRAZY. SMILE.

I know I am CRAZY. I am CRAZY as a cat. SMILE.

Yes, I am SMILING.

I have been LONG, VERY LONG (like 6-years) on AMZN, TSLA, NVDA, ROKU (since IPO), AVGO …

So, have the kids, BUT they also have NFLX & APPL. SMILE. GRIN.

SMILE.
