Well, well, well, how the blazes are you all?
Yes I know I have procrastinated over the last few weeks and Rod has been constantly bullying me to get off me butt and write some stuff for you lot.
It’s not that I haven’t wanted to. My computer has been on the fritz and I have had to say goodbye to it and get meself a new one. So there’s no stopping me now see.
I know that Rod has been keeping you all up to speed about the first five shows and I can tell you that they have ALL been ‘kin brilliant if I may be so bold to say so meself!!!!!!
We are having the best time so far and things are just getting better and better. I do have to say that I’m very surprised to learn that some of you out there are WHINGING on about us playing the whole of the new record, well all I can say about that is Bollox, we are doing what we feel is a great set and want to share our enthusiasm with our fans for what is in my opinion our best record to date so please stop moaning and enjoy. We are not out to do a 'best of' tour. Been there and done that thank you very much, that is not to say that we will not do that again in the future, we most probably will, but until then, come along and enjoy a feast for your eyes and ears. Enough said!
Well, I’m sitting here in New York awaiting the arrival of me Sweetpea. She is coming up to see her best friend, Norma Jean, who’s celebrating a very special birthday this week and of course to see her old man. After she arrives we plan on a little late lunch and then off to the show in Nassau County. I’m really looking forward to playing the show tonight but I’m not a big fan of the area. Wonder why???????
Any how, it should be a cracking evening.
I do miss my son Justin. He can’t come to any of the shows as he plays bass drum in the ‘Vanguard’ which is West Boca’s high school band. They have county and state competitions to do until the middle of November. They cleaned up all the awards last week with the exception of the Colour guard which went to one of the other local schools. They won state championship last year. Tough act to beat. I’m very proud of him and what he is achieving. Well done my son, keep it up.
My eldest son Nicholas is back in Blighty and working with his step dad and doing really well too. I’m blessed to have two great sons. I’m hoping that Justin will be in England at the end of the year to see this magnificent show. Nick’s popping to a couple of the British dates. So maybe I can get the whole family together for Earls Court, have to see.
Well me misses should be here real soon so I’m going to ‘Kin go know. I look forward to our next words and hope you are all safe and well.
May God bless you all.
