Glasgow gig and a pink hippo ! ( In a leotard )

Me and Alisdair played a lovely venue in Glasgow called Brel. It was kind of like playing in a green house, but in a greenhouse full of people. They looked after us really well gave us nice food and were so lovely. But I can't mention Glasgow without mentioning Angela. I first met her when I played in Glasgow almost 2 years ago, then she made me a cat in a ski jumper on ski's. This time she made me a pink hippo in a leotard and tutu. She told be that she was going to make me a horse but the head got so fat that she turned it into a hippo. I don't know where the connection comes from this time as I don't have songs about a hippo's or horses, but maybe I should write one called Hippos and horses.

Here is a picture of me Angela and the hippo.

Pictures from last nights gig !

Our friend Jason Sheldon took some lovely pictures of the band last night. He also gave me prints of pictures he recently took of Dolly. I asked him if he mentioned the idea of a duet with me, but apparently he wasn't in the best position to bring that up since he was photographing her at a live gig. Well there is always next time Jason.

I had a barn dance for my birthday !

My dad emptied his work garage of trucks and diggers, my brother and his mates somehow borrowed a lot of hey bales from a farm somewhere.
Me, mum Telma (my sister ) and Alisdair were in charge of decorations, cowboy hats, music, marshmallows and many many hamburgers for the barbeque.
Then I found a line dancing teacher willing to show up in full cowboy gear, and told all my friends and family that they had to take the theme seriously and dress up..... and they did, it was lovely.
