Fortunately not very far away. We camp near the stables although it does, at times, smell a little......rural.

Close enough to be not far from the action (although this year the action has moved again to include the Fitzroy building) but far enough away from late night noise.

Cold cold wind in Canberra, following yesterday's rain! It will be nicer tomorrow, apparently.

I haven't been practising either, but I may have recruited a fellow office vollie to come along to the hymn session.

I'd love to get there, but now we're on the pension it's just too expensive. Once you add to the festival tickets, return airfares from Perth, plus tent city (no chance of carrying camping gear on aircraft) it comes into the price bracket of 2 airfares to UK.

How I wish it was still a touring festival.

Cheers

Never trust the Canberra weather forecast for Easter. Pack enough clothes for a trip to the Antarctic via a few days in Phuket and you should be fine. I think there's a Vinnies at Kingston if all else fails and you need an extra layer or three.

Mrs B from B tells me I should act my age. Tough love!

She told me I should make the supreme effort and wake up bright and early on Sunday morning for some Ozcatter hymn singing. Gosh, I hope there's still the tradition of a sly liquid "pick me up" to assist with those high harmonies! My hip flask will be running dry by Sunday.

Our band, Señor Cabrales, is 'resting' from the National this year but I'll be hosting the Broadcasters Forum on Monday afternoon for anyone interested in chatting about the folk music we hear on Australian radio. All 'Catters welcome, of course.

been home a few hours, washing done & dried, fridge very low (a few very sorry veggies, which will go to compost) but we stopped for morning tea & I bought a yummy salad & a delicious pie for dinner.

I just downloaded my photos - 422 of 'em, many are duplicates. I like taking lotsa' pics of bones players & dancers to be sure of getting some that show the action!

I took a sore-ish throat with me which ended up in laryngitis on Friday so several folks suggested I try manuka honey - in fact the bloke selling it said I would be singing again in 2 days & I was! Tho my voice did go in & out all over the weekend, depending on how much I spoke & sang.

Weather was good, I didn't need most of my warm clothes & my Rent-a-tent was close to the festival, tho when my feet were sore, I looked longingly at the mobility scooters trundling about. One of my friends after a lifetime of mobility problems finally hired a scooter & left his wife in his wake! Strange the number of folkies using walkers & scooters these days ...

Bruce, you missed a great hymn session, singers were well lubricated by chocolate eggs & Dr. J.
