Up and working...

A 6CD set arrived in the post - one of five recent purchases on Amazon...

It soundtracked equipment being kickstarted into action and tested...











Much of this has not been used for a good few years...

It took some considerable time but, eventually, after the purchase of a new mic stand and a complete run through of all 30 songs to be played, everything was packed away and ready to roll...



Anne was at Tynecastle to see the Cheats of Govan defeat the Jam Tarts 3-0 - using a player signed this season from Hearts and for whom Hearts are still owed £800,000...

Meanwhile, Queens looked into the abyss of relegation to Division Two with a 4-0 home defeat by Livingston..

Even to be sure of a play off, they must win their last two games, against previous relegation likelies Raith Rovers in Kirkcaldy and, on the last day of the season, at home to Champions Ross County who are unbeaten in over 30 games...

Queens have been bottom of the table for twenty of the 34 weeks thus far...

Your correspondent readied himself for tonight's performance...



Set up at the venue was delayed by Spanish football, putting us around 20 minutes behind schedule...

Eventually though, all was in place...



..and off we went...



An enjoyable evening all round, I preferred playing bass to guitar I must say...

A goodly number of old chums were in the audience...



The view from the stage at half time...





Barman Finbar delighted his home crowd with songs by The Kings of Leon and The Script...



All too soon we were finished and the take down and wind down began as the stragglers drank till last orders at 1 am...





Home and to bed at 2...

Very enjoyable day - must do it again some time...

Highlight of the day : Performing...
