Confined to Barracks
It looks like we will all be confined to barracks for some time.
We’ve been asked to make some videos for our members, and have started getting phone calls and messages asking when the first video will be ready.
Here it is!
My Life Story
Karen was preoccupied last week with what was happening at school, so I set up in the garage to kick things off. The results were predictably poor. I should be able to make one of those blooper videos though, so all is not lost. I’ve been relocated to the music room and am hoping to get better results there. I did an audition in front of Karen last night and got a pass. She’s busy setting up the lighting now, so that’s the second job I’ve lost today (the first was putting Cabot’s oil on the deck). If the lockdown continues I might just write my life story “The secret to avoiding the hard jobs? – being willing but not able”.
When I was taking a break from knocking things over and tripping over the cables I managed to cobble together a montage of photos I’ve collected over the past few years. Most are from our performances, so members who come to sessions and not to the public events miss out this time.
What’s Next ?
I am happy to do another montage, so if you have some photos that you think will be of interest please let me know.
I hope you enjoy the video as it brings back some happy memories of your time spent at the Rosebud Memorial Hall, Kite Fest, Rockfest, Australia Day and other events we’ve been involved with.
The next video should not be too far away. I’ve been lowering the bar every day for the past week. Today I just dropped it on the floor. As long as I don’t trip over it and end up in hospital you will have video number 2. It won’t be the same as playing with my wonderful friends of course but I’ll be thinking of you all when I’m strumming away.
Well done Al
Most entertaining and looking forward to the next video.
Great little montage. I look forward to your next creation.
Well. If that doesn’t bring a smile to your dial, nothing will.
Looking forward to the next one.
Hope all our Spukes members and families are keeping well and safe.
plenty of time to develop bad strumming but still enjoyable
everybody be careful and stay safe
great work Al
Well ! I just think that’s FANTASTIC!!
Thank you Alan for putting a smile on many faces I’m sure
– especially mine!!
Thanks again I’ts Just great!!
Regards to both PennyL..
A trip down memory lane! That was fabulous Alan. 1👍🤗
Made my day. I am soooo looking forward to getting back. Hope everyone is well. I miss you.
Loved it. So missing all my Spukes family & hope you are all managing ok. Those of you who have loved ones with you hold them a little tighter, is living alone without any social interaction is just horrible.
In the words of the great Winston Churchill during WW2
‘Never in the field of human conflict has so much been owed by so many to so few’.
We will prevail
Great Alan we all have fun rehearsing and playing at our gigs.
Wishing you both a Happy Easter and thank you for your efforts to keep us amused in these unusual times
