Saint David's Day.


Recommended Posts

Well I listened to Tom Jones in Napier. Cracking stuff! Played to the audience completely; did all his hits how I wish I had the sex appeal he has; at 70 I have 20 years to spare.

 

And I now know that the St David's flag is a yellow cross on a black ground, that there is a movement to get the Welsh part of the union acknowledged in the Union flag and that some silly basta*ds think there should be a dragon involved (cretins!!)

 

The I remembered why I moved to NZ and told the parties explaining this that I didn't care. Sometimes it takes an effort to remember to do this sort of thing.

Do you know the joke? If not, it's too good not to repeat here.

 

Guy goes to the doctor.

 

PATIENT: Doc, you gotta help me. I can't sleep, I can't concentrate. I'm constantly haunted by this stupid song, "What's New, Pussycat." I can't get it out of my head and [ WHOA - WHOA - WHOA-OH ] it's driving me nuts!

 

DOC: Sound's like you have "Tom Jones Syndrome."

 

PATIENT: Tom Jones Syndrome? I never heard of that. Is it very common?

 

DOC: It's not unusual.

Just what I need -- an excuse to break out the 'tina for a rendition of Guide me, o though great redeemer. :ph34r:

 

Same here!

 

Except where I learnt it, it's "Guide me, o thou great Jehovah". Or the Socialist version: "Shorter hours and better pay". One way or the other, a rousing piece for the Anglo!

 

I've already given my three tunes for Paddy's Nite - my three for St. David's would be "The Ash Grove", "David of the White Rock" and "All through the Night". I play them as a suite on the Anglo, the outer ones harmonised in C, the middle one starkly monodic in Am.

 

Cheers,

John

I spent mine on the sea front at Cardiff Bay.

 

I play for Cardiff Ladies Morris and it was our first dance out of the season.

 

Cardiff.............Ladies dressed in Welsh traditional costume.........dancing a dance tradition called

Llaregub [/i] (read that backwards) ......with a pint of Brains Bitter.

 

A great day out.

 

Phil
