Bebop Spoken Here's Post of the Year.


We've had some great writing on the blog this year - well done Russell, Steve T, Steve H, Hugh C, Ann Alex, Debra M, JC, Jerry and several others including myself (sez he modestly) but nothing could compare with the report by Scott Black from Hong Kong of clarinet/saxman Franco Valussi's birthday at Ned Kelly's! This was Hemmingway, Runyon, Greene and Kipling all rolled into one - an exceedingly fine piece of writing. I'm told he [Scott Black] is no mean trumpet player either!

There's no way I could write like the example as I don't have the experience of drink, but it's good to be appreciated for our efforts Lance even if we don't get paid much, or in fact, anything! So a wage rise would come to ...nothing!
