The band has been booked for my 84th Birthday Bash . For a change, it will be on my actual birthday, Saturday October the second.
The gig will be at my local, Angie’s Free House in Woodfield terrace London W9. The nearest tube station is Westbourne Park and buses are 28, 228 328 31 18 and 36.
The band will include Al Vincent, Mel Wright and Jon T-bone Taylor. Steve Taylor is waiting to know whether he will be in the country at that time.
I had Covid on the 1st March before the first lockdown and it took twelve days to get over it without hospitalisation. I learned later that the choir that rehearsed locally in The Union Tavern had all gone down with it, so that was where I probably picked it up, as I had listened to them for a while on my usual Monday night visit. I then had a few days pubbing and got drunk as a skunk on Paddy’s night, falling over on the way home and getting two black eyes to remind me to drink less next time. Unfortunately there wasn’t an immediate next time as all the pubs shut down due to the first lockdown. No, I haven’t really learned my lesson, I’m pleased to say.
