    A man placed an ad in the classifieds: "Wife wanted."
    The next day he received a hundred letters.
    They all said the same: "You can have mine."

I know the feeling :cry:

Perhaps :wink: you should be posting on here for a lady who would enjoy the candles, the balloons, and your obvious desire to celebrate a significant occasion, bill :D :D I'd bet if you don't make a big 'event' of it, mrs bill will complain about that too..... :shock: Had you considered advertising her in the forum's 'items for sale'.......?? :D :D :D :D :wink: Or, as a last resort, in 'Freebies and Favours'..... :) :) :wink: :wink: :lol:

    go for it bill - stick the candles on her cake anyway. time mrs bill started living in the real world. oh and by the way, mum agrees and grandma says hang a big banner outside the house on the day saying happy 65th birthday mrs bill :D

I was going to buy 65 helium ballons with 65 printed on them but due to recent events ( arguments )I've decided not to bother --- furthermore I've been warned that she will not go out with me for a meal as it's a waste of money --- can't win really :(

They do candles which are in the shape of a question mark (?), that might have been a better option.

Got a birthday cake with the right number of candles on and couldn't cut it - I was driven back by the heat :cry:

we are the age we are and I don't understand why anyone with half or more of a brain wants to pretend something different. why does everyone want to lie about their age. kids who are in their early teens want ID to prove they are 18 or 21. underage prats who wanted to join the military in the wars said they were older (yeah, sadly that includes greatgrandad but then as greatgrandma says, his IQ doesn't even reach room temperature). then they all suddenly want to claim they are younger. how sad is that. go for it bill - stick the candles on her cake anyway. time mrs bill started living in the real world. oh and by the way, mum agrees and grandma says hang a big banner outside the house on the day saying happy 65th birthday mrs bill :D

Could have been worse, Bill. You could have bought the correct number of individual candles - and burnt the place down :lol:

    Poor Bill, you will just have to take your dear wife out for Sunday lunch.
    Have you by any chance been taking lessons from Mouse? :shock:
    Just as well she saw the candles when unpacking the shopping, can you imagine if the first time she saw them they were actually on the cake. I think you may have had the cake on your head. :lol:

I know what it's like Bill, I brought my wife a new Iron, much lighter than the other one for her last Birthday, and took her out to KFC and shared a Duo bucket with a Coke between us, and she still moaned even though I only asked her to pay half of it. You just cannot win.!!

why not -- it's how old she is -- and as she is constantly reminding me of how old she is it seemed logical

Bill, can't believe that you, as a mature man, don't know that we ladies - after a certain age - prefer to ignore the numbers! I'm on Mrs Bill's side :)

saw some nice cake candles with numbers on at the supermarket yesterday and as mrs bills birthday is in a couple of weeks I thought I'd buy a couple ( 0ne with 6 and one with a 5 ) she didn't notice that I'd bought them untill she was emptying the shopping bags at home and that's when world war three started
I couldn't even pacify her by suggesting she switches the numbers around to make it 56 -- sometimes you try your best to please folk and all it does is start an argument.
oh well me and my bright ideas .
moral of the story is don't buy candles with numbers on for a woman who can't remember how old she is ( or one that can't count ) because it could seriously affect your health
Bill
