Tomago Family Fun Day Show n Shine to raise funds for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.

Last December (2014) I was approached when playing out at the Tomago Bowling & Sporting Club to see if I would be interested in being the main artist at the Family Fun Day Show n Shine.

I was told it was to raise funds for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service so naturally I said yes being that it was for a worthy cause – it would be held on Sunday the 12th April 2015 and would be a Car, Bike and Truck show.

Well we got there on the Saturday and proceeded to set up, sound check and then settle down for a quiet evening with Chris and Lynn the organisers cos people would be arriving at sparrows fart (means b4 sunrise yawn) and they did Chris was walking around at 3am.

we had fun and raised money for a great cause just look at the pictures – cars bikes more

Catherine Hill Bay with the CMCA

Hunter Coastal Wanderers Badge

On the weekend of the 21st of March I had the pleasure of spending the weekend at the Catherine Hill Bowling Club (facebook page) with the Hunter Coastal Wanderers (facebook page) the No 2 Chapter of the CMCA.

CMCA WRV Club

Now for the uninitiated CMCA stands for Campervan & Motorhome Club of Australia of which I am a member (also a member of the WRV Club –  for Winnebago and Avida motorhome owners).   Both Clubs are similar but on the same token very different with the CMCA having many Chapters and monthly weekends away in every state…   anyways if you want to find out more then goto the CMCA’s website or facebook page or the WRV Club website.

Not only did I have a great weekend (despite the weather) I also played on the Saturday night and a great time was had by all as can be seen by the photos below…

Happy New Year To Everyone Wherever You May Be

2014 A Year in Review??

Happy New Year 2015

As 2014 draws to a close it’s been an interesting year to say the least. I still drink that horrible stuff water and the odd Jack Daniels and Bundy’s as well (I’m allowed right?)

Funnily enough I don’t mind water although its spring water I drink as tap water here tastes and smells of chloride.

The year however has had it’s share of ups and downs but all in all it hasn’t been too bad, ok cept when I was in hospital after being knocked unconscious playing at a pub and bleeding from my head, ears and eyes – yep that wasn’t much fun. Last thing I remember was lifting my guitar over my head to take it off. But I won’t bore you…

I‘ve had photo shoots done…

I‘ve had Aunty Winne(bago) signwritten…
(and no they are not bars like a jail cell in the picture I’m standing on the outside)

and I managed to travel to many places – like Lightning Ridge and meet some wonderful people

Wish you were here

and at the Blue Mountains doing a Cancer fundraiser with Reg (doing some duets) – thanks mate

Reg and myself

and up at Bullock Mountain with Steve Langley (79yrs young) at another Cancer Fundraiser!

The legend himself - Steve Langley

I‘ve met some great people and had a lot of fun times…

friends with friends

All in all Christmas and the year to date despite various setbacks has turned out pretty good.   I got to goto and still am at mums, had xmas lunch with my brothers family…

family

and saw my gorgeous daughter BJ yesterday and had Nandos for lunch.

family

I‘ll be seeing a mate of mine Glenn and his wife Vicki who I haven’t seen for quite a while and I’ll get to see Marj and Gary and play the guitar and sing again till way after midnight so all in all as I said so far its turned out pretty good AND the New Year 2015 is only 9hrs away.

Ok wait for it… my New Years resolution:  Catch up with people I have forgotten to ring or see and try to be not so forgetful (will try honest) and yes I know what they say about New Years resolutions but I will try.

And so from me and mine to you and yours from somewhere in Australia… ok and Dave as well

Me with Dave and his tongue sticking out

have a great New Year and hopefully we’ll meet at a gig or somewhere or…

if you see me out on the road say gday or hit me up on UHF Channel 40

Three Waters… a great week of Horses, friends and of course Country Music!

Three Waters… a great week of Horses, friends and of course Country Music!

What can I say… You have to hand it to Steve Langley and Kerry, once again it was a fantastic event and a week seems too short!

The legend himself - Steve Langley

Steve Langley along with the assistance of many others made the week a success even though numbers were down!!

Crackin' Cancer cancer_council_nsw

Now of course I got there on the Friday October 18th after stopping for the night at lovely Wallabadah, as I had to do a kids disco on the Thursday night. It was great to get there and catch up with everyone especially Steve and Kerry.

This time I some friends of ours BJ and Heather came up with their camper trailer and camp ovens and cooked bush food well ok Pizza ain’t bush food but it tasted good. Even Gnome who’s been hitching with us since Megalong Valley came along for the ride.

Mr Gnome

Now this time we didn’t raise as much money as we would have liked because the numbers were down but some of us still dug deep into our pockets and of course Steve Langley did his Noo Orleeens Rap to the rapture of everyone – thanks Steve

Steve Langley I was a rappin

Of Course it seems that our little stowaway Mr Gnome just had to get into all the pictures I mean he’s been to Megalong Valley in the Blue Mountains, he’s been to Mudgee plus a few other places and now Glen Innes and Bullock Mountain and you can count on there being more!

The name is Gnome... Mr Gnome

Even friends that couldn’t make it for the ride drove down from Queensland just to say gday thanks Deb!! squeeze in ha ha…

friends with friends

A great time was had by all and I made sure the country music was being played day or night

catching up with friends

All in all the sad part is packing up at the end of the week and knowing you won’t see most of the people for another year, but I can’t wait until next years Crackin’ Cancer Three Waters fundraiser to be held and I’ll be there.

Well from here it is off to Grafton for the Jacaranda Festival and of course the Clarence Valley Music Muster for more Country Music.

Hey if you see me out on the road say gday or hit me up on UHF Channel 40
