Chance, me old son, I have a meeting in Alrewas, Staffordshire, England at 12 noon, which is probably 7AM your time maybe? Plenty of time to get there in the private jet, if I have got round to buying one by then.It's kind of dependent on record sales. If not, I fear me and Kate will have to give this one a miss, but have fun anyway.

From: Fortunato

Lead Fingers, next year for sure!

Ebbie, you beautiful creature, your rain check is platinum

Greg, my lad, I believe it's all a matter of publicity. Could you arrange to get caught getting out of a limo while showing off your lack of knickers? I'm sure record sales would soar and that Leer Jet would be a cinch.

Until then give my best to the lovely Kate and we'll drink a toast to absent friends.
cheers, chance

Edmund (CET) and I plan to make the scene, and will be kept away only by fire, flood, international disaster or contagious disease. The thought of blowing town far enough to escape all possibility of contact with our jobs is quite dizzying in its appeal.

I really need to play some tunes.

HEY Micca......One of my favorite weirdos has just the song to help you remember the recipe!


    Yeah Toast
Heywood Banks

All around the country and coast to coast
People always say what do you like most?
I don't wanna brag I don't wanna boast
so I just tell em I like toast

[Chorus]
YEAH TOAST!!
YEAH TOAST!!

I get up in the morning about 6 AM
had a little jelly had a little jam
take a piece of bread put it in the slot
push down the lever and the wires get hot

[Chorus]
YEAH TOAST!!
YEAH TOAST!!

Now there's no secret to toasting perfection
there's a dial on the side and you make your selection
push to the dark or the light and then
if it pops too soon press down again make toast

[Chorus]
YEAH TOAST!!
UH TOAST!!

When the first caveman drove in from the drags
didn't know what would go with the bacon and the eggs
musta bin a genius got it in his head
plug the toaster in the wall buy a bag of bread make toast

[Chorus]
YEAH TOAST!!
UH OHH!

OuI monsuier bonjour coquette
on hon croisoiant on vous a vere
morishe vour Eifel Towere
ouI marie baguette bon soir

[Chorus]
FRENCH TOAST!!
FRENCH TOAST!!

Perhaps Lucas make toasters as well.

(I know they make refrigerators, which is why the English drink their beer warm...)

I used to drive a Triumph 2000 and then a Saab 99, both of which had Lucas electrics, so I do have a right to comment...

Bruce o'Beard, banjos are indeed welcome at The Shivers, as long as they are house broken. As for the left-handed part, we are equal opportunity banjoists ("There'll be no distinction there").

Chance, I should have said this earlier -- I'd love to come, but I'm flying into Dulles from California in the early evening, and my hotel is in Leesburg (carefully selected so that I could cross the Potomac into MD without going anywhere near DC). After flying all day, I's afraid I won't have the energy to drive to Silver Springs and then back to Leesburg. Alas! Raise a glass for me.

The version dating from pre-inflation times, SINSULL? Time to "move Vaughn" or merely time to move on? It won't be the same without our "Cattle-ist For Change" displaying her unlimited range.

Sins, "Last Chance" doing "Ghostriders" without the "Horses Asses" backing it up, complete in Horse, Donald Duck and Flamingo costumes?? Naw wouldnt be the same!!

We beg your pardon!

Not "Horse's Asses" Micca. We were "The Poor Horsemen Of The Apochryphal". The horses' asses and shakable tail feathers had to be kindly supplied to us from elsewhere! (Nag's Butt, North carolina, maybe?)

BB, Kriek, Belgian Cherry beer is very good as is the Framboise( the raspberry version), both are a bit STRONG tho' but both are distinctly red-pink coloured.

Do they still make Sparkling Pink Champale?

I still recall Liner notes to an Otis Spann LP where Don DeMichael described a Chicago club and Muddy Waters' "personal table where the Champale flowed like wine".

Mille grazi to Chance & Suzette for hosting this shindig!

A splendid time was had (and probably still being had) by all. I left so I could get some sleep. I have a feeling I won't be getting to much over the next few days. Plus I have to socialize with the cats, as I'm going to be leaving them to their own devices for a few days.
Anywho, I snapped a few pix, they are posted here
