Yes I think their sojourn in Virginia was very successful - had an e-mail this morning from someone letting us know how much they'd enjoyed the songs and stories at the Richmond Folk Music concert. They got to see a little bit of Virginia too - we managed a quick trip to Jamestown. Hopefully they'll be back in this neck of the woods again so they can see more!

Yes, Dublin was definitely in the green, and the owner was very happy.

The Richmond audience was very welcoming, and joined us on the choruses. Everyone seemed to enjoy both evenings - we certainly did.

Now it's just a matter of getting back home and re-entering our normal life - back to the day-job . . . ;-{

It's been a great trip, our thanks to everyone we've met along the way who helped make it so. Perhaps we'll get the chance to do it again some day!!

.....arrived USA totally confused by time & date - offered breakfast on aeroplanes three times in one day!

A BIG thank you from us both to Rita and Bill for all the hospitality they gave us during our time in the Washington area. It was wonderful to catch up with so many friends and meet new people. We thoroughly enjoyed doing the House Concert at Rita & Bill's and we're glad to know that it was enjoyed by so many people.

We had a great time at the Shanty sing at Stacey's - I think Vince's pictures sum up the atmosphere there really well..

We've arrived at Mary's in Virginia - my knuckles are still white fom driving on the Capital Beltway!

We had a great time last night at the Irish Pub watching Mary's gig ....our turn there tonight. We're looking forward to our concert at the Richmond Folk Club...and then it will be home to the day jobs (ugh). It would be good to play hookie though & take a plane to Boston instead but we'll (hopefully) catch up with you, Barry & the Mainiacs at the Getaway in October.

Now I'm off for some retail therapy this morning...

A wonderful night. Andrew & Carole stake out their own little corner of the world with both original and non-original material sung well with a sense of history and location and a knack for both a good chorus and novel, non-standard plot lines. The originals include some of the best nautical songs I've heard written in recent years, and of course, the fact that nobody ever mentions Wales much over here makes the learning of the stories all the fresher for it for some of us. A nice trip to some unfamilliar ground that we all came out of much the better for having taken.

No chance of a sunburned spot today Kitty - it's raining hard here in Sydney!

We had a super time in Canberra meeting up with Canberra Chris & the Shiny Bums (again). Great singing & great hospitality. Thank you all!

Last night we were treated to a song session in Sydney with John & Jenny O & Freda (et al). Despite competion from a concert by a certain E Bogle we had a great time. Cheers to you all - you've all made the Oz leg of our trip magical!!!

We had a great time hosting Andrew and Carole in Canberra - thanks for passing through! Shiny Bums plus friends for a gathering on Tuesday night at my place, more Shiny Bums at the Wig & Pen brewed-on-premises pub Wednesday lunchtime, and yet more Bums at Claire's to witness the chaos of our rehearsal for Bulli. We've still got two days to work out who stands where doing what.

Loved all your songs, lovely to have you here! Have a great session at Margaret's, and a good trip out.

Check the thread on raising the next Bude-Stratton Festival - they must have heard us discussing it!

Chris

Thought I'd bring this to the top again. Sydney 'catters - tonight is your last chance to catch Andrew and Carole before they head out of the country.

As I mentioned before, it's a session at Margaret Walters's place in Darlington / Redfern, starting around 8pm. If you haven't had an email about it, PM me for more details.

I know a lot of folks will be off to Bulli, but if you are still in town, this will be the place to be for a top night.

As usual, it's going to be over too quickly. I always love meeting Mudcat people - they are so friendly - and I'm always sad to see them go. See you in a few hours!

G'day Carole,

Did you get to see them close enough together to see just how closely they compare?

A most improbable fact is that the koala is, in fact, a "re-arborialised" wombat. The telling point is that both the wombat and the koala have backward-facing pouches, for their developing young. This feature is indicative of a ground-burrowing development (so the excavated dirt doesn't end up smothering junior in the pouch!).

At some point, an ancestral koala decided the browsing was better up a gum tree - and the digging claws were strong enough to get an animal of near-wombat bulk up the trunk of the gum tree. (Hence the legend of drop-bears!).

Regards,

Bob

We've had a brilliant time during the last two days with Andrew's family.   The first time in 30 years that they've all been able to get together.

Chris - Andrew has mailed you - we tried to phone last night on the direct dial telephone in our motel chalet....it wouldn't work. No-one told us that we had to ask to have it switched on first!!

We'll be saying farewell to Batemans Bay this afternoon after a final farewell to Andrew's parents & then make our way to Canberra.

At long last I've now seen a real live wombat & koala bear!!

Hi all -

Yes, the tour's still on schedule and we'll be in Canberra tonight. I've e-mailed Chris with our ETA, and we're looking forward to seeing him again and anyone else who can make it.

No mobile number as we're luddites in that direction.

We hope to be back in Sydney on Thursday, if it's still standing after the storms. We really appreciate the way Australia has adopted British weather for our visit   ;-}

Thanks for the update JennyO, and the confirmation that they are still coming through Canberra on the way back to Sydney. I know what it's like touring, especially caught up with family, and not able to find a moment to make a call, so I am not concerned that I haven't heard from them, but if you or any other has a moblie number for them, you could PM it to me, just as a backup.

We had a lovely time on Friday night. The weather was perfect, and everyone was pretty laid back - I know I was. Good thing it wasn't today - it's been really hot for the last few hours and now there is a thunderstorm brewing. Everything's been put away so I don't care - in fact I like a good thunderstorm.

I mentioned this on the night, and I'll be sending an email out - we are going to have another session on Thursday night when Andrew and Carole are back from Canberra. This time it's going to be at Margaret Walters' place in Redfern/Darlington.

John will be back from Cygnet by then, so they will have a chance to catch up with him and anybody else who couldn't make it on Friday - not to mention a lot of us who are coming back for more. We'll kick off around 8 with BYO drinks and nibbles, and lots of music! So if you haven't gone to Bulli, and would like to spend some time with a pair of delightful entertaining people, please come. (Actually I reckon we're all pretty delightful and entertaining ;-)) Anyone not on my email list can PM me for details.

Jenny

The strangest thing about wombats is their name - I have never seen one flying, or hanging upside down from a tree.

Look forward to A & C in Canberra, have put the word out for Tuesday evening at my place, any Mudcatters within reach of course welcome - PM for details.

Congrats to Andrew's parents celebrating today in Batemans Bay.
