Went to a musician friend's 40th on Saturday, the first time I have
played out in years. Some highlights:
Friend witnessed a robbery in progress at the local 7-11 when he went to
get supplies for the cook. Potentially dangerous, but no harm done and
Excellent home brew donated by friends neighbour as a birthday present.
Very heavily hopped, much nicer than the limp-wristed VB and XXXX Bitter
I usually drink.
I can still jump into a duo after about 10 seconds of listening. I'm
pleased that my improv skills still seem to be on the up.
Friend's dad, about the same age as me, enjoyed the kind of stuff I
play, and had a fair bit of background knowledge of it. Surprised me a
bit for a wheat grower from the Liverpool Plains. You never can tell eh?
<Sigh> He did ask if I knew any Slim Dusty though.
After a couple or three beers I sang a bit, and got my daughter to join
in, which was great
