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.

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

Aunty Winne gets a face lift

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.

Aunty Winne standard

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.

Aunty Winne my drawing sm

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…

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!

So if you are in Victoria and you need a good signwriter then look up The Marx & Weston Sign Shop from Kyneton.   They’re friendly, believe in customer satisfaction and above all… do a great job!
