Andrew Giddings' Diary - December 2005
You may know that back in October we played a Hurricane Benefit concert in Shreveport, LA. USA and it was nice to see some familiar faces that had clearly traveled (with their bodies) some distance to attend. It seemed to be a full house and there was a nice atmosphere around the venue. Thanks to you if you made it. I’m sorry to report that so far I have not received any word of recognition of my donation from the organizations concerned, although I imagine a letter of thanks from the American Red Cross is winging its way to me as I write!
You may have also heard the very sad news about Mark Craney. I won’t reiterate here other than to say God bless you Mark.
So, hands up who’s done all their Christmas shopping? My family must have everything in the world ‘cuz they can’t seem to give me any ideas as to what they’d like under the tree. I told them that if they weren’t forthcoming pretty soon I would get them things that I want. That means Mum’s getting a 24 pack of Becks beer, Dad’s getting a set of decent cutlery and Christine, my sister is getting boxers’ and black socks. That’ll teach ‘em.
Regretfully, I won’t be seeing our friends in India next year – I
know at least a couple of the other guys are busy with previously arranged
commitments too. India is a beautiful destination and I’ve always
had a lovely time there thanks to the people I’ve met. Not to mention
all that sunshine and excellent food!
Next February and March we’ll be touring the UK. I’m quite excited about touring in my home country, no airports, driving my own car, and even the odd night at home to sleep in a bed that I know the history of! Top Tip – next time you’re staying in a Hotel, whatever you do don’t look between the mattress and the headboard!
Ok I’m beginning to ramble, and that usually means it’s
time for bed. Wishing all who celebrate it a very merry Christmas or
whichever celebration you decide to mark, and if you don’t celebrate
anything at the end of the year, bah humbug!
