Happy 70th Birthday Jeff…

 

Jeff Price: The Bonus Years

It’s here at last. It’s my 70th Birthday today (27th November 2018)

This is my little birthday present to all of you who have been following my Blog over the last 18 months. It’s a little video of the last of the 70 poems I wrote for my Blog. It won’t win any Palme D’Or awards but I did make it myself with just the help of a laptop, I hope you enjoy it? The poem is seventy things I am grateful for, some are serious and some frivolous and some only really mean something to me but it’s my birthday and I want to indulge myself. The poem is based on Ian Dury and The Blockheads  “Reasons to be Cheerful Part 3” and features a clip from the track at the beginning and then a rather clumsy edit to the poem.

According to the Bible I have now had my allotted three score and ten years, which means the next how many years I have left are all bonus years and I intend to go on living them with as much hope and joy as I can. 

Keep sending in your requests for the Poetry JukeBox, it has been fun doing them.

Peace and Love

Jeff

  1. I’m looking forward to your 80 reasons to be cheerful in ten years time. You have got me compiling my list of 70 for next July.

  2. Happy Birthday Jeff. Who would have thought you would ever get there? With the poems that is, not your life which remains secure in the hands of the NHS. Hope you have a great day. Much love. John
