OK so they joined 6 weeks ago but I thought I'd announce the new membership of Ploughboy and Thumper - top father-and-son aerophone and fiddle combo, who have been regularly attending our sessions here in north Lincs for over a year.

Ladies and gentlemen; Ploughboy and Thumper.

(Applause)

Just thought I'd take time out from penalty shootouts to welcome our friends here. A word to the wise; don't ask Thumper how he earned that handle.

Open mike, aerophony is what you do with accordions and their ilk.

Amos - they are lovely people but how in the name of all that's holy did you know that they were Californian?

I extend a welcome to the two new Califonian euphonium players. Pop over to Hull sometime, you'll hate it!

I love fiddle and accordion sounds -- do you newcomers have a recording? A CD?

I just got a pm from one or other of them. They have waggled the aerial about a bit and are now tuned in. Despite the fact that this welcome has been a bit like pulling teeth;

I give you, Ploughboy and Thumper from Barton sans Hyphens.

Please respond, both. Please.

The extraction finally got through, the aerial was rusted up.
Thanks to everybody who welcomed us.

Glad to see that ol' Ploughboy is easily a match for those who post even the most impenetrable nuggets here.

Care to elaborate upon the accompanying rabbit? No - second thoughts....

Keep us posted, mate.
