A Female Perspective...

"Mary Won't You Weep" - eh! It should be "Brenda Won't You Weep" ! In between my fright-filled performances I have to find time for my other hobby: - painting & drawing. Unfortunately I have an old handicap called Beresford who is often under my feet. He must be fed, patted, cuddled & guided through each day. Sometimes I can't find him. He's either up in his room, where it's difficult to find anything, with the PC (and the cat), - or he's out visiting.

That means it's time for me and so in between the cooking, ironing, washing, and cleaning, {sob-sob}, I may find time for a music practice. The Friday night performance fills me with dread. I don't really enjoy that and treat it like a visit to the dentist. It'll all be over soon! On the night, well practiced pieces just fall out of my mind, fingers don't work & as I don't hear well either it really makes it an ordeal.

However, I do enjoy what other people do and I admire anyone with the gumption to have a go. My particular favourites are mainly Mick Wills, Roger Gosbee & BIll Jordon (2). My hearing aids are turned up for them! Very nice lads they are too. I wish I was 35 again, but still being 40 isn't so very bad! I like their lovely pieces of music, all polished and ready to go. Aren't we lucky to have such stars? I must work harder and give them something back.

Here's the recipe that you asked for:-

Elephant Stew

1 elephant (medium size)
1 rabbit (optional)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cut elephant into bite sized pieces; this takes about 2 months. Add enough brown gravy to cover. Cook over kerosene fire at 465 degrees. Serves 3800 persons.
For those who dislike elephant stew, the rabbit may be added -- but only if necessary because most people don't like hare in their stew.
