A good week yet a sad week and the memories it brings…

Last Friday was the 24th of August and so what I hear you say… well that particular Friday my brother turned 50 (a happy occasion?) yet I couldn’t travel interstate as I had to have several viles of blood taken for numerous tests, have an e.c.g. plus more.   As I have a lump on my lung and keep getting pneumonia they are still deciding what to do – hence all the tests.

Monday brought about the C.T. Scan, chest X-ray and comparisons to the previous scans, anyway I won’t bore you with the details needless to say there will be follow up appointments, tests and things to do.

That Friday tho the 24th was also the 1st anniversary of my mates (Brian) missus Kell, passing from Cancer which I wrote under the title “Cancer Sucks fair dinkum” it is hard to believe that a year has passed since then.   Brian true to his promise is still looking after Kells kids, is still providing a stable and loving home and still doing what he can to ensure they have a decent life.

You think that because you are going through different things which in my case are health issues they are important which really they are but, losing someone and trying to carry on is really difficult especially when they are family as it means you can no longer tell them things and the things you did want to say – well it is maybe too late.

Never take things or people for granted cause one day they just might not be there… then it will be too late – I know because losing my father was hard enough on me and still is however I see how it still affects my mum, they had 51yrs of marriage.

To Brian mate, I understand your pain and to Kel you were a lovely and kind person who really was way too young only 42 years of age.  The picture below is how we will remember you, full of life.

Kell Heffernan (1969 – 2011) aged 42yrs RIP

Great time playing at Shinnys Hotel marred by mates motorcycle accident…

Man I had a top time playing at Shinnys Hotel, the place looked packed both inside and plenty of people outside – makes you feel better.

A couple of ladies stated they read about me playing on Facebook so decided to check me out instead of somebody else – my thanks to you both.

A few mates turned up after going for a ride and gave me a hand to pack up (I had already done that).  After a bit we all left and all seemed fine, stopped at the Golden Arches for some dinner and went home and crashed out as I was buggered.

I awoke the next morning to find out my 2 mates (1 a passenger) had been involved in a bike accident not long after we left and were in hospital in a serious condition, we’re talking punctured lung, broken femurs, ribs, wrists, ankles and more. I know a good law firm, so I checked out oregonaccidentattorney.com and called them immediately to ask about the next moves we should take under the circumstances. I went in there, but they were too out of it to notice. That’s was a very bad surprise. It took them long to recover. They were lucky to get a good lawyer who managed to get them compensation they deserve (click here to learn more about this law firm).

You can see by the picture of his Harley V-Rod Muscle as to how serious it was, forks snapped, handle bars snapped – its a write off.

The bike can be replaced, you guys can’t so both of you get well and see you soon.

Till next time – Leigh

Leigh in hospital stitches required

No this is not an April Fools Joke.   Leigh was working on his Harley desperately trying to get it finished so he could go for a ride with the boys on a Friday night.

You see the clutch hub had stripped out on his open primary and he was replacing it and all was goin well until he tried to turn it over by hand.

The open primary rolled past the compression stroke taking Leigh’s hand with it and getting caught between the open primary and the shifter bracket on his Heritage.

Result: Floor covered in blood (seriously it was), stitches around the index finger near the knuckle and just missing the tendon by 2mm.

Missed by 2mm

The doctor stated 2mm more and his guitar playing would have been over – that was a wake up call.

Till later – Leigh

New Blog Site

Well it’s after 1am and it’s time to pack it in for the night seeing as nothing else has gotten done.

The new blog site is up and running and seeing as I am a newbie at this, well shit it’s been interesting trying to get it done.

I’ll try to keep all this interesting but in some ways it will be a diary of whats happening with my music and related subjects including tattoos and harleys as well.

Good night all
