A lot of these white boys play the blues real good. Ain't but one thing about most of them though: most can't sing a thing - David Honeyboy Edwards, from his bio

 :) :) :)  STOP PRESS   :) :) :)

Now in my efficiency I thought I should confirm the booking for this years Euroweenie extravaganza only to be told, shock, horror, probette that there was no room at the inn due to a cock up with their booking system  :o

However, with my usual subtle tact   >:(  I pointed out that had it been a wedding and we were all getting hitched I'm sure they could have sorted something out, not of course that I particularly wanted to see The Prof in his lace bridal outfit  :-X but, then again somebody might have  ::)

SO the dates have changed, actually for the better as it means the weather might be improved   :)  I have provisionally taken 10 rooms for nights of Friday 29 and Saturday 30 April 2016 to include the use of a friction function room while we are there for those incredible performances.

As before it's the Webbington Hotel -  http://www.webbingtonhotelandspa.co.uk

Tel 01934 750100

Room rates inc of VAT are -
Single occupancy Bed and Breakfast ?85
Double occupancy Bed and Breakfast ?110

You must mention WEEKEND BLUES and the dates when you book to get the rates I have agreed.

I think that's it really, doubtless there will be queries over communal meals and all that - I would suggest may be we book that for the Saturday night and then at least the festivities will start on time-ish.

It would be helpful if you mention when you have booked so I can keep a vague tally of the rooms. Finally, a witer of a not too hard quiz is required as is somebody to clean up after the dancing girls.

Sorry to disappoint all my fans, but I won't be able to make it this year. Mrs Parlor Picker has been ill and I'd better stick around here. Somebody else had better take the photos this year.

Well that's a bit sad PP, I hope it's nothing to too onerous.  You will be missed, especially for all those solos that we couldn't stop you taking...  ;)

While I'm here I suppose should en quire if anybody out there has booked yet or intend to do so?

Not booked, but will strain every sinew (apart from those in forearms and fingers, obviously) to make the trek up the M5 with a few old Nationals for the Saturday session.

Now boys time is going by and I need a few more takers for the rooms they are holding for me since they did go to the trouble of sorting out another date - what chance of biting the bullit and making that booking - please!

For reasons beyond my immediate control I will be failing to step up to the mark this time. Hope you all have a great time!

Thanks to Mike and Pete for booking in, although I really am very sorry to hear Phil cannot make it this year - it won't be the same with him  - not only that but I'll have to do the bloody program myself!

Oh no ... no PP or Blueshome ! You will both be missed

I am booked in (not that I would be missed if I hadn't, other than the peanuts and what have you)

Richard - I am sure we can all contribute some ideas for agenda items.

I'm booked but won't arrive until Saturday afternoon due to a gig on Friday night. I'll be bringing my girlfriend, Lorna, who sings the blues and has a particular liking for Bessie Smith, Memphis Minnie and Bertha Chippie Hill stuff.  :)

Looks like you've got a "quorum" now, which is good news. Sorry to be missing the fun. Mrs PP is doing well and nearing the end of her treatment. Thanks for all the kind comments, which have been duly passed on.
