Dear Friends,

Well it’s been a few months of lows and highs….

The most significant thing that happened was Kris having a nasty fall saving a spider…resulting in surgery, and this…

A multiple fracture of the wrist.

Personally, I think it’s an elaborate plan to coax me into extending my primitive cooking skills :-)

Kris is an awesome (in the old fashioned meaning of the word) patient and is healing well,

but It will be a few months until she can play the guitar.

Kris accused me of playing with the food when I dished up the “Corn with the pearl earring”

Washed down with a Yoda martini…

On a brighter note we arrived home from hospital to discover that lightning can indeed strike twice in the same place.
Having won Australian Songwriter of the year in 2009, I didn’t expect to ever win it again.

I was fortunate to also be awarded the Best Lyrics for “A Library Burns” 

and Best Comedy song for “The Day the Queen smoked a joint”, 

and a finalist in two other categories, delaying my steady transition to feather duster for one more year.

 

Now to brighten your day…

 

Fun fact, did you know that in 1960 Audrey Hepburn went missing during the filming of Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Here is a photo of the moment the search was called off. She was later found at Tiffany’s.

We have also finally figured out what these things are for on cars!!

Obviously we are time rich at the moment so we have time to contemplate the big issues…

For example, it appears that the Earth is actually a large kitten, and Australia is the ball of wool.

Speaking of which, our topiary is coming along beautifully, or terribly, depending on which neighbour you ask...

We are addicted to the incredibly talented people signing the COVID press conferences.

This was how they interpreted the roll out of the vaccine...

I hate mowing lawns as much as the next person, unless the next person lives in Iceland.

 COVID is bad enough now, but it can always get worse...

As I said, we’re time rich, and Kris made the mistake of asking me 

If I wouldn’t mind tidying the shoes.

And here is a prototype for a traffic light that allows for more nuanced traffic flow...

I have been so in awe of Kris’ patience and demeanour through her ordeal with her broken wrist

that I created a song and video dedicated to her amazing spirit.

 

It is entitled “Falling for you”

If anybody wants to help us keep making music in these times of no gigs, here is a one off tip jar.
