So Much Has Happened Since My Last Post & Blue Mountains Cancer Fundraiser Starts In 10 Days

LikIMG_0613 at 25pce I said, much has happened in the last 2 weeks:- NRL, AFL, Prime Ministers plus more AND the Megalong Valley Cancer Fundraiser starts on Saturday 26th September amongst the backdrop of the lovely Blue Mountains.

We’ve had Fathers Day which was both a sad day (my father passed away from Cancer in 2007) and an exciting day as I got a new motorhome (see above) – ok it’s made from Lego but hey…

Dad - Ray Warren 1934 2007

Monday 7th I had to see the optomotrist cause of problems with my eyes since an incident August 31st last year (also CT Scans and other stuff), Deb went into hospital on Wednesday 9th for a knee replacement (still there as I speak/type?) and then the weekend… The Melbourne Storm beat the Sydney Roosters (minor premiers) in the NRL semi finals and hey everyone picked the Roosters (who’s laughing now??) so we’re still in with a chance #purplepride #werunasone.

Also on the weekend I was wrapt as my (and mums) AFL Team Richmond Tigers were in the semi finals after 14 years playing Nth Melbourne Kangaroos (my dad & brothers team).   I think Dad from up there must of helped them as the Tigers went down to the Roos and so goes our finals chance, oh well 2016 it will be.

Oh yeah I also help to pickup a Bofors Gun which we’ll be restoring…

I’ve been busy also laying down tracks and vocals for a song that my mates sister asked me to do as it is about (oops can’t say they might read this) anyway I’m hoping to have it finished before I go to Megalong Valley actually it will be finished.   Must say I am very impressed with my Rode NT1 microphone I purchased earlier in the year, I like how I sound through it compared to my vintage 70’s Shure mic which incidentally I’ve had since the 70’s (still a great mic).   This time I’m using my audio-technica Limited Edition ATH-M50x headphones for monitoring which I must say sound great and no, neither company sponsors me though I could be bought/bribed hint hint… also using Logic Pro X as well as my trusty Mac laptop and desktop.

Went to bed and Tony Abbott (on right) was Prime Minister and when I woke up Malcolm Turnbull (on left) is now Australia’s 29th Prime Minister after defeating Tony Abbott 54 votes to 44 votes for the Liberal Party leadership.   Who knows I might go to sleep and Julie Bishop (behind Malcolm above) who is still the Foreign Minister and Deputy Liberal leader could be our 30th Prime Minister.  Hey stranger things…

I am so looking forward to the upcoming Cancer Fundraiser at Megalong Valley in 10 days time yep I will arrive on Friday the 25th and set up ready for Saturday 26th.   Heres some photos…

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!!

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
