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!

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!

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.
