"I used to sneak out of my house to go to parties when I was young. Now I sneak out of parties to go to my house!"

Just a few Thank You messages and pics from the last 3 gigs.
Still struggling to do anything after the Viral Chest Infection. So tired and tearful and lacking in interest...but the show must go on. Sooo...plenty of slap to try to disguise the wreckage I used to call a face.

Last weekend we were back over at NEWPORT BOWLS CLUB where we have been many times. George and the lads have taken over the organising of the event after Maureen and the ladies decided they wanted a rest. Well done to all. Another great night with our friends there. Looking forward to seeing you all again next year.

This weekend we were at another Bowls Club Event for Tamworth Bowls . Birches Coppice was not easy to find. We drove onto 2 Industrial Estates, up and down and round several islands and actually into a man's back garden which not surprisingly was a dead end!. This was made slightly worse when we noticed he was up a ladder watching us. Doh!! Eventually we had to pull up and try to find it on foot. Couldn't pull back on to the main road in the rush hour trafficThe Satnav is still in his sock drawer!!!
Lovely evening when we eventually got there. First Set from the TAMWORTH TWANGERS and friends...Ukes and Banjos. Jolly stuff they played and sang and went down really well.
Great to see my second cousin Rita and husband Fred who I hadn't seen for many years.. She has just turned 86 and Fred is 90 this year. I was her bridesmaid when I was 5. Not many family left so it was great to catch up. Another lovely surprise was among the Twangers..old friend Carl Dwyer...father of folk singer Andy Dwyer. Well into his 90's but looking good and still performing. Great night. Thanks to all.
Last night we were just up the road at the BEAUDESERT GOLF CLUB on Cannock Chase. We did it last year and we will be doing it again next year. Thank you so much to Grace for asking us and for the lovely people who came along and supported the event. Great to catch up with some old Friends.

More photos from the last few gigs at HAMMERWICH CRICKET CLUB . The first one shows Ron (centre) with her wonderful team of Bar Staff at the gig last Saturday night.. As it is a special night she is wearing her British Empire Medal which was given for her long and outstanding work within the community of Burntwood.
Ron and her W.I. friends have done 50 years of Fundraising. The whole evening was so filled with warmth and good fellowship. It is a very close community and the people there support each other so well. When life's troubles can overwhelm us it is good to be part of such a network.
To all of our many friends there....Please note the event has already been booked for next year. It will take place on Saturday February 1st. We will be appearing with ETERNITY DUO, Nicky and Cliff. Phil is taking over and I am sure Ron will be on hand to "put him right!"
The Event last week raised £812 without Bar Takings and the money will be spent on replacing the decking and rail around the Cricket Club. Thanks again to all. Sorry I didn't get chance to have a good natter but I was in quarantine in the back room nursing me germs.

I recently went on a "Legalise Cannabis" March. The turnout was high.....
This is a brief clip from the Hammerwich Cricket Club Extravaganza last Saturday. Against Doctor's advice I rallied to the cause. Suffered for it on Sunday...but it was a Special night for a very special person....our Organiser, Friend and Patron Veronica (Ronnie) Box who was retiring from the organising side of the event. Ron has booked us there many, many times over the past 25 years. The best crowd any performer could ever hope for. Great to be on with our friends Nicky and Cliff aka Eternity Duo. I shall put on a few pictures...past and present on another post.

HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM DANDY
Just to wish all of our friends a fabulous 2019. Thank you so much to all of you for coming along and supporting us over the past year and the past years.
2018 was a big year for us. We have worked in Entertainment for the past 40 years. This was all thanks to people like you who come to see us, check out our page, buy our C.D.s or just support us with a "like" now and again.. We still do it because we still get work and we still enjoy doing the gigs and meeting the people. Making people laugh is a very rewarding thing to do for the most part. We are lucky we can still do it. We did about 90 gigs in 2018...which is a lot of gigs when you are 70. Although we had several enquiries from the very nice Production Team on Britains Got Talent...We had to explain that we no longer have Television Faces. We are now better suited to Radio. Still it was very flattering...until Allan remembered how many dogs had won it!
We shall be taking part in the Theatre Tour.."A Black Country Night Out" again this year. One date at Lichfield Garrick on 1st March and then other dates TBA for the Autumn.
Sorry the photographs are not of us "Together". Big Nose is in the other room watching "Oliver" or from the sounds I can hear "Snoring" through Oliver. These were from our New Years Eve gig last night. Great to be working again with our friends, Nicky and Cliff aka ETERNITY DUO. Also a big thanks to them for a wonderful Christmas Day. xx

"So this is Christmas...and what have you done?" This is either a John Lennon song or my usual Seasonal Tirade aimed at ALLAN...
Who was the First Biker? Apparently Moses. "The roar of his Triumph was heard all over the land".
Just finished the last gigs before Christmas...and not before time.
We have done 42 gigs since September and at the great age of 70 that is a lot of gigs. Feeling a bit frayed round the edges. Bring on the Botox.
Awful night of weather on Saturday night for such a lovely ride. Playing in MICKLETON in the Cotswolds. We have played at the Village Hall here several times. This was a 50th Anniversary for Philip and Nicky who used to book us many years ago at Blossomfield Cricket Club in Birmingham. Lovely people. Thank you for looking after us so well. Congratulations to you both.
Next afternoon we were over...again in the rain...at PATSHULL PARK GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB for WOLVERHAMPTON ROTARY. Oh! I just love these people. We have known them for ever and they are just great. Thanks to Brian for asking us over . Lovely to see Peter and Val and so many familiar faces. We wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year.

Brexit...what a fat lass from Rotherham does when she lands on a flimsy plastic chair.
They say men and women were created equal but have you ever seen a man trying to wrap a Christmas Present!
Another catch up with the gigs this week before I get snowed under. Nearly there now. Thanks again to various.
Some gigs I share to other pages..mine or Allan's page and sometimes I just leave them on this one.
Thanks to the people who we met on Tuesday at the PAVILIONS, Wolverhampton. This was the Christmas get together for the Friendship Club. How lovely to see our friends Coleen and Terry there. Thank you so much for the lovely pressie. Quite a few familiar faces. Many thanks to all.
Wednesday we drove over to STOURTON for the KINVER PROBUS GROUP who met for their party at the FOX. Thanks to all for their welcome and kind words.
After the hell that was teatime traffic yesterday we decided to stop off and have a meal on the way back. Arrived back at 7.30p.m after leaving at 11.30 a.m. this morning. Tired but fed.
As you can see from the photographs most Christmas gigs mean a lot of hanging round while people eat. Hence the silly photos when we look for things to play with to pass the time.

Do the French not see the irony of rioting about the rise in fuel prices by throwing petrol bombs!
And remember if you lose your Scapegoat..you have no one to blame but yourself!
Still working fairly flat out for 2 old codgers of 70. Three gigs this week and people to thank for their kindness and support.
Bit of a trek for us out Cheadle way to DRAYCOTT IN THE MOORS. We were working for PROBUS at the request of some friends of ours....Jan and John. John and I worked together in our teens at the Patent Shaft Steel Works. Venue was a cosy little Pub called The Dracott Arms. Many thanks to all for making us so welcome.
Local gig for us next over at The Bonser Suite Walsall Football Club for WALSALL BREAST CANCER CARE SUPPORT GROUP. Big crowd. Lovely to meet up and sit with our friends Paula and Alan. Made it a special night for us to be able to share it with them. Many thanks to Pat and the team and to Barry for looking after us.
Friday night and the traffic is chocka. Over at AVONCROFT ARTS CENTRE, Bromsgrove. This is a gig for a group of people who we have worked with before...FAIRFIELD BOWLS CLUB. What a lovely crowd they are to work for. Great time with them. Thanks to all.
