BEER FOR BREAKFAST

I'm writing this blog on this bright and early morning from my hotel room in Perth WA.
Perth is my favourite city in Australia, but I like Western Australia in general, I love the heat! . . . . It also seems to me, to be just a little bit more relaxed.

So where did we leave off? . . . . Yes Adelaide; for me Her Majesty's Theatre in Adelaide was one of the best shows on the tour, the sold out gig was pretty wild for a mid-week show but the folks in SA, didn't let us down! . . . . We also had the longest queue's from the autograph hunters, which stretched out the main entrance of the venue.

We left Adelaide, for our gig at the Regal in Perth WA. Yours truly didn't realise it was a gig day and I was setting myself up for a day off in Perth (I must read the schedule) Anyways another bouncing gig in Perth, sold out and rammed to the rafters! . . . . . . Much change in Subiaco where the regal theatre stands, and the theatre too had had a little makeover to seats etc, which is a great improvement.

The day after the Perth gig, was morning travel to Albany . . . . . Heavy rain, lots of storm clouds and guess what? . . . . . I don't do small planes. The regional flight we were taking was on a 20 seater Saab . . . . . The weather didn't look good and at 11 O'clock in the morning I ventured to the bar . . . . yes you read correctly. I ordered a Carlton Dry Lager, followed by another and another and eventually another. I even had a beer on the plane.
Well? . . . . Was it a bumpy flight? . . . . . . How the f**k would I know I was half legless!!!!!
Now for anyone who knows me, 3 beers would be my total for almost the whole tour, but needless to say I sobered up nicely and and by mid afternoon after a small nap I was ready to go and back in the land of the sober!
The day after I drove back toΒ  Perth with the support act guy, Michael, leaving early morningΒ  . . . . 450 Kilometres later, we pulled up to a sunny hot Perth and I went straight to the hotel pool . . . Happy Days!

Today is Friday; We have our last show of this 2016 Australian Tour in Bunbury, I usually meet an old school friend here, so that will be nice. Very few tickets left as it stands, so another sell out look's like it's on the cards.

So . . . . . I best get up for some breakfast . . . . . and no I won't be having alcohol, I'm sticking to coffee today . . . . but once the gig's over tonight? . . . That's a different matter . . . . Beware Perth!

    We had a fantastic time at the Adelaide concert. I was 2nd row directly behind the drunken blond. She certainly seemed to have a great time haha Pity we had some unseasonally bad weather for you. WA is beautiful. Great place. Hope you have a great gig tonight. Hopefully you'll make it back to Australia in the next few years. 😊 Thanks for the good times

    Saw your show in Bunbury tonight, absolutely fabulous the best, could remember 1975 and the feeling of being young and in love. Hope you come back next year. Stumbling in and lay back in the arms of someone you love, have very special memories for me and my husband. Sadly he passed away 8 weeks ago to pancreatic cancer, I played your CD and sang these songs to him. Thank you for the memories and lovely songs.
