AMERICA ON TYNE — 10 Comments

  1. No hint, no conspiracy to keep anything quiet, just indefinite plans, changing plans. I decided yesterday and purchased my ticket for the flight. For heaven’s sake! You are so quick to take offense.

    How fast will the tickets go? I’m tempted to ask you to buy me a ticket to Irma Thomas. When are the Savoys playing? Though I guess I could buy my own ticket.

  2. Too late. My feminine side has kicked in and I have already worked out every word that have been winging their way across the Atlantic between you and Cathy.

    My feminine side has also gone into a mega-sulk, whilst my masculine side is aiming what’s left of the UK independent nuclear deterrent at Louisiana.

  3. Oh, if I only had the money and time off to see the divine Irma and the Savoy in your neck of the woods. My birthday happens to be July 23 – smack in the middle of the celebration.

    Enjoy, and think of me.

  4. MP, We do not go for ‘sulk’ in cajun country, so lighten up. It’s all good, as you well know.

    Oh you will be blessed. Enjoy it all and rest your soul with the best.
