Nostalgia





Following on from Sourpus's post about - err -posters, I dug out some old ticket stubs and flyers which might amuse some of you. Sorry the picture quality isn't very good, they're stuck in a scrapbook and I can't get the light right. Anyway, it made for interesting reading (for me) - there's all sorts of cr*p in the s(crap)book, including a temporary membership for the Dounreay Social Club and a return ticket from Bristol Temple Meads to London Paddington for £2.37!

It's my birthday today and my brother gave me a Bellowhead CD, from which I was going to upload something, but I'm not sure if I like it very much so here is some nice soothing John Renbourn instead (Sidi Brahim) to get you in a nostalgic mood. If that doesn't work, a large whiskey usually does the trick.

Happy Birthday to young Tessimmel too.

What a lovely scrapbook! How I wish I'd kept stubs and programmes from a lot of the gigs I went to all those years ago! Happy birthday Ali!

Happy Birthday, Ali! I would've liked to come along to most of those gigs...
If you really don't like the Bellowhead (and it's not 'Burlesque'), I'll swap you for it!

Thanks for good wishes, all - DebbyM, I'd be happy to send you a copy (best keep the original in case my brother pops in!)

Evening all. Just back (from working away, in SKP country) in time for the MFF. So a brief but heartfelt Happy Birthday from me too, to both AliM & tess.

Off to get my head around Songs About Beauty . . .
