So very excited about this - got me tix, for me and my new Mrs P (she claims to be a non-progger, but I saw her tapping her foot in 15/8 at our first gig together, Spocks at The Robin in 2007).
Looking forward to seeing everyone again (I gate-crashed your pre gig meet-up in Derby last year, then got totally smashed and spouted bollix all night), and hope to be on better behaviour this time if you let me join you - Mrs P will have my jewels tightly clamped in case of over-exhuberance!)
I know some of you guys are staying at various TravelSplodges, but am I right in assuming they don't have a resident's bar? Anyone know of a hotel with a retreat, within (arthiritic) walking distance from the venue (I'm not reet familiar with that Lahndahn place).
Do such things exist? You know the thing, drumless track left, click track right.
I'm trying to build a personal library of proggy stuff I like, so I can practice with more challenging music than the usual things that are available. Obviously Frost* things would be top of the list, but the usual haunts have come up blank.
Adopting a more grown-up attitude (which I generally find quite difficult), well, Jem has to do what he has to do. Health and family, much more important.
Jem, thanks for being, well, a gem I guess. Loved the music, the banter, the Frost* Reports, and the general zanyness of your work. I hope it's a temporary measure, but do what is important for you and your loved ones.
I just wanted to say 'thanks' to all the wonderful Frosties I met in the Cucumber and Hearing Aid (or whatever that pub with the ice rink outside was called), and I'm grateful to you for letting me gatecrash your meet-up.
I met some thoroughly nice folks, all very welcoming to a newbie.
Kudos to Mike Evs who ensured our safe return to the hotel, and to both Mike and JinjaBeardy for the great chat in the hotel bar afterwards.
I'll be in tough on the forum as often as possible, not going to 'cut and run' now... seems like a nice place to hang around!
Thanks again folks, hope you all got home safe and sound.
