On a cold January morn, many years ago...

I was born in King's Hospital, London. Not with a coffee cup in hand (that wouldn't come along until seven years later) and my parents did't name me Cosmo (that came many years later).


Here's a picture of me as a baby. You'll notice that, even though I was a boy (still am, in fact) my mother dressed me in tights. Maybe it's an Ulster thing? Any insight, Ali?


So if you're having coffee today, have a piece of cake as well, because it's my birthday!

Happy Birthday to you and I hope you have a wonderful day, although if you have weather like ours today you might need those tights!! Judy

Cosmo said...

Thanks, everyone.

What a lovely Surprise!

Ali said...

hee hee ha ha! nice one :-) I have to say, apart from Pluto, I don't know too many Ulster men who wear tights, but whatever floats yer boat as they say.

Nice to know theres only a week between us. Well, a week and maybe a year or two!

By the way, did you know that pram thing you are in in the pic is called a tansad?? I had an identical one - that must have been an Ulster thing!

Happy Belated Birthday Cosmo!

Ali, it's a well known fact (although it has obviously passed you by) that many big, strappin' Ulstermen who work outside wear tights in cold weather. Then, of course, there are some men who only wear tights at weekends!

Pluto: Indeed you are rignt, even some of the Ulster rugby squad had tight-like things on during warm-up before the match on Saturday.

They weren't lacy though ;-)

Cosmo said...

I'm getting the feeling that some of you are having at laugh on this blog...at my expense!

Pluto said...

Not at all, Cosmo. You have just started an interesting discussion on men wearing tights!

Wallace said...

what a great pic! Hope that you had a great birthday!

Sorry it's a bit late, but Happy Belated Birthday Cosmo!

(I've been in hiding as well!)
