2014 A Year in Review??
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
and at the Blue Mountains doing a Cancer fundraiser with Reg (doing some duets) – thanks mate
and up at Bullock Mountain with Steve Langley (79yrs young) at another Cancer Fundraiser!
I‘ve met some great people and had a lot of fun times…
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…
and saw my gorgeous daughter BJ yesterday and had Nandos for lunch.
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
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
Till next time, take care, yours in country music – Leigh
Aunty Winne is getting a face lift and the reasoning behind…
Someone said to me that Auny Winne as I affectionately call her needs a face lift. Now Aunty Winne is not a person as such but rather a Winnebago based on a Mazda T4600 that I own. She’s nice and comfortable but rather plain on the outside I’ve been told.
Personally I think she looked lovely but people kept saying “It pays to advertise you know…”, but did I mention she’s comfortable to drive and live in, I mean she has a bed in the back unlike some plus separate toilet and shower and… well you get the drift. The only thing is you need a truck licence to drive but I have a semi-trailer licence so all good.
I get the hint so I search for and find the local sign writers…
Now it wasn’t hard to find the local sign writers as there is only one in town, so I thought ok I’ll just design something take the laptop down with my handiwork and see what they think and of course the important part – the cost! Below is what I came up with on my laptop.
To cut a long story short the price was great and within literally minutes they had my design drafted and so the go ahead was given.
The journey to change Aunty Winne begins…
Working on the front with the tack tape still on
Working on the back with tack tape on
The Journey is complete
Back completed and looks just like my original picture but with a bit extra added and yes I am happy with that (and no they are not bars like a jail cell in the picture I’m standing on the outside)
And yes the front looks just like the picture I provided to them and yep you guessed it I am happy!
