Field and snow and impossible songs...

Playlist
Cloudland Blue Quartet – Last Night’s Set
Cherubini – String Quartets
Field – Complete Piano Concertos
Various – Euphoria Ibiza

Another very cold day indeed during which it always looked like it would snow...


To HMV at lunchtime and finally succumbed to the offer of a 4CD box of the complete piano concertos of Mr John Field...

A quick listen back home - having gotten myself ready to brave the elements...


Chris-with-a-Ch arrived around 7...


...to, very kindly indeed, give us a lift down to the Dakota Hotel in Queensferry....

A long awaited, multi-postponed, night out with John and Ali of Impossible Songs beckoned...

Here are the lovely ladies at the Dakota...


Much beer, wine, G&T’s and liqueurs plus some extremely tasty food was consumed...

And, finally, it snowed...


It was great to catch up with them – it’s been too long...

A variety of topics was covered including comparisons of our respective Canadian Rocky Trips...

And I think they are somewhat intrigued by the performing in Second Life idea...

A hair-raising taxi ride, involving dropping the Impossible Songs a mile or so from their house due to the snow, saw us arriving home around 1:15 am...


...to find the flowers which appear on the cover of "Splinterheart" looking like this...


A good night...

Highlight of the Day : Out with Impossible Songs...

Hope your trip was uneventful - for us, Paisley was cancelled today and tomorrow's game is cancelled too..

Bummer...

Great night last night though

Cheers for that you guys!
