Birthday Bonanza

No it’s not a special offer – but it’s a special week. Special to us because there are an unusual amount of staff birthdays this week.

Today is Tom’s birthday (TomCayman)and Sally’s birthday (Odd Blog) – it is also Linera’s birthday (although she left the reef last month after many years of service but I think it still counts).

Tomorrow is Enrique’s birthday (he’s our own Cuban Compadre of everything computerised).

What brought us here to The Reef? Is there a cosmic birthday thing going on? Who knows!

Let us know if it’s your birthday this week – we need to know so we can consult the stars. So far it seems that Tom must be the key to the puzzle – you see, he also has another connection to a triumvirate outside of The Reef….

He has three friends with the same birthday. The youngest is John Michael Foster (eldest son of the late David Foster), at 38 today. The oldest is Dr. Gordon Smith, who is 51 today…

For years they would keep bumping into each other out for dinner with their wives on Oct 4th – they found a solution to this and organised a joint birthday dinner – each inviting three other couples.

Answers to the puzzle on the back of a postcard please….Your clues again…October 4th/5th, the number three, Tom McCallum – is there a message? And if so, who is sending it?

    Yesterday was my father’s b-day. Next week I have 5 family members and friends with birthdays plus 3 anniversaries. Not to mention the wedding we are having for my sister-in-law on the 29th at The Reef!

    Nancy, you are a true Reef Resortian with your October birthday gang!! Hurry on back here you must be an important part of the riddle too.

    I wonder what happens when all the October babies are here at the same time?

    Will you, your birthday connections and your sister-in-law add the missing part of the puzzle?

    (Make sure you let us know when you get here so if bedknobs and broomsticks start flying we’ll be prepared!)

    Hey guys,

    My birthday is Oct. 2, my cousin is Oct. 1 and my husband is Sept. 30. Too bad the weeks we own at the Reef are in Feb-March–which is our wedding anniversary (Feb. 25). I get the feeling we’re missing out on a great party!
