Fame Part Three
As we are such a famous family now, the above is a picture of Himself playing in a jazz band a couple of weeks ago. (He's the one on the right, playing with his mate Bob.) He was to have been playing this Wednesday but unfortunately the venue was already booked, so that will have to wait until after Christmas.
In the meantime, you know that cornet he bought a few weeks ago? The one that was JUST RIGHT, POP. The one that he spent ages reshaping, stripping of lacquer and doing god knows what else to?
It’s gone back on ebay
He did laugh, rather nervously, and said, ‘”the tone’s wrong, Pop.”
Story of my life.
He sold it at a loss of £45 .
“Just as well you’re not trying to make money,” I said (though of course this was the idea).
Out walking the dog on Saturday, he said, “Come on, Pop. I have to get back to check my internet business.” He giggled. “It’s called bankruptcy.com.”
Just to compound matters financial, he bought another cornet last night on ebay at the knockdown price of £42. I despair.
For those of you asking if I could put my moments of fame on Youtube – I don’t (yet) have a DVD of the programme, but for a good laugh, you can see it on the Westcountry TV website - http://www.itvlocal.com/westcountry and click on Documentaries.
Unfortunately I sound like Ann Widdecombe. But we don’t look alike.
