I reach 89 years high!

J’atteins une hauteur de 89 ans.

English version below the picture

  Après mon voyage d’Amiens (France ) à Toronto (Canada) en Décembre 2000 pour rendre visite à un soldat rencontré en 1944 , un ami m’ envoya en 2002 une photo de sa composition . Je pilote l’ avion !!. Ne trouvez – vous pas que j’ adresse au photographe une sourire crispé . Et que j ‘ ai une drôle d’ air avec mon casque en cuir !!

 Il écrivit en bas de la photo une expression latine « Quo non ascendet .? » ce qui signifie « Où ne montera – il pas « ? » Je peux dire que demain 12 Mars j’atteindrai 89 ! !!

Photo arranged by Yvon Lefebvre January 2002 . I pilot the plane  ! What a face!  .
Photo arrangée par Yvon Lefebvre Janvier 2002 . Je pilote l ‘ avion . Quelle tête !

After my trip from Amiens (France) to Toronto (Canada) in December 2000 to visit un soldier met in 1944, a friend sent to me in 2002 a picture he had just composed . I pilot the plane !! Don’ t you find I give a strained smile to the photographer ? and what a look with my leather helmet !!!

 He wrote at the right bottom of the picture a latin expression “ Quo non ascendet ? “ that meant  “ where won’t he go up ? “ . I can say tomorrow, March 12, I reach 89 years up !

    Best wishes for a very happy birthday ! I knew someone who celebrated her birthday for a month, which makes some sense. Eighty-nine years is quite a milestone . And with many well-earned rewards in your case. 🙂

    Bon Anniversaire! Happy Birthda

  38. L. Marie says:

    Joyeux anniversaire, Michel! Love to you and Janine! ❤️

  39. Doug Thomas says:

    You were correct! I apparently clicked on this post on the reader but didn’t open it. I’m sorry I missed your birthday in my haste, Michel. Happy Late Birthday! Best wishes for feeling better, too. (March 11th was my late sister’s birthday. I was a bit preoccupied with the fact she no longer is with us. I suppose that’s how I rushed through the reader posts for the 11th, 12th, 13th. The circumstances of her death are a bit of a family scandal, with a nephew who no longer is on the will.)

  40. mrswrangler says:

    I am glad you had your birthday.

  41. Congratulations and Happy Birthday to you! I wish you all the best and good health!

  42. sherazade says:

    Caro Michel!!!
    Sono così dispiaciuta di arrivare in ritardo con il miei grandissimi auguri per il tuo giorno magico che spero avrai festeggiato .
    Ti abbraccio fortissimo e ti auguro ancora lunga vita con noi che ti vogliamo bene

  43. cocosangel says:

    I checked and checked but apparently I have not wished you for your birthday. I am so so sorry for the delay.
    Happy birthday Michel… 🎂 🎂 🎊 🎊 🎈🎈 🎉 🎉
    Happy birthday for approaching 89 years.
    89 years, you have seen so much. The World War II and changes in your life.
    You have lived with a blessed life, and blessed children. and grandchildren.

    Joyeux anniversaire. Un peu tard mais le coeur y est.
    (Mon père était du 20 mars, et ma soeur du 22…)

  47. Ah le bel âge, Michel ! Prenant de la hauteur avec la fine élégance qui te caractérise si bien, tu sais encore si bien nous émouvoir, nous attendrir, nous faire sourire
