Alan Waddell's 90th Birthday


Alan at the Sydney Opera House after enjoying a performance of an updated version of Gilbert and Sullivan's Mikado.


With Alan at the Sydney Opera House were David (son), Elizabeth (David's wife), John (son), Graham (son) and Nea (family friend).

Alan celebrated his 90th birthday in July 2004 with only his second visit to Sydney Opera House. Isn't it strange how that building is known worldwide, and visiting tourists head for it soon after arrival, yet many Sydney residents have rarely or never been inside it even though it's been open for 30 years!

Before that, by the way, the site was a tram depot.

In a celebratory card game of UNO with six family and friends after the opera, Alan's final total score was 90. What a coincidence with which to finish the day!

Messages of congratulation were received from the Australian Prime Minister, the Premier of the State of New South Wales, Federal and State Members of Parliament.
