Day 135 ‘Show Time’

A lot of my waffle tends to be focused on the past. Stories that seem bigger to me now than they did as a kid. I guess at some point in the future, my present life will fall into an adventure or two. Certainly, the narration of the past is helping me to appreciate the here and now a great deal more. I’ll be stepping out to do a show tonight, and it’s been a fair old while between drinks but I’m feeling very relaxed about it. I think I owe my time at the Victorian College of the Arts for virtually eliminating every nerve in my body 🙂 . All new material, nothing from the old album. Most of it I have never played in public before. It will also be my first time having to perform with prescription glasses. I was rather hoping my double blurry vision would snap back on its own, but it did not happen that way. Adjusting to bifocals is a bit of a head spin, but well, ya know, I’m sure it will be fineeeeeeeeee :p
If all else fails, I’ll just improvise a blog live on the spot 😀 . If you’re planning on coming tonight…thank you and I look forward to seeing you. If you’re not, change your plans! Don’t make me come get you! Yep…it’s going to be that kind of night.

Until tonight!
Thank you for listening.

Day 133 ‘Sugar lips :-)’

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen the old square sugar lumps. Passing a market today I saw them in little paper bags for a handful of change. After school, I used to retreat to the back of the farm, sugars in hand, to my pets. Moo the cow and Milkman the pony. (Very big on imaginative names back then 🙂 ) . Settling into the hay shed, I’d begin distribution. One for you, one for you, one for me. 🙂 Milkman always took the sugar with teeth retreated, and gums first. Moo would stick her tongue out as far as she could, wait for me to place the cube, then haul it back in with lightning speed. I never paid much mind to it back then just how careful they were not to bite me. After our sugar hit, we’d run a few laps of the paddock just so I could stop abruptly and have them splay mud and dirt in all directions as they dropped anchor to avoid squashing me. Funny the things we take for granted growing up, and the little oddities that trigger a trip down memory lane. As I held the bag in my hand today, I felt a genuine pang for my fur friends of many years ago. I need a door at the bottom of my garden, just to step through from time to time to visit with some sugar. 🙂

Until tomorrow!
Thank you for listening.

Day 130 ‘Guilty’

Yep……..but equally, I love hearing about other people’s pets. Show me a baby in a pram, and I’ll smile nicely at the little bald guy and say something polite. Show me a puppy, and I’ll turn to goo 🙂 Oh well…..Que Sera Sera!

Thanks for listening!
Until tomorrow.
