Mis queridos compañeros cantantes,
Wow - what a return - thank you so much - it was wonderful that 24 of us were able to make it last night (including no less than 20 naked knees !!!) - it was great to be back in the relaxed company of good friends.
I have to say my vocal chords were a bit on the tight side last night - which necessitated soothing later in the evening with a couple of pints of Shuggyboat blond and a wee nip before I went to bed . How did the rest of you cope???
The Boss worked us hard - no mercy shown - but he had to get us match fit for Saturday afternoon and he did a canny job. There was a lot of positive energy and smiling faces last night - we’ve started where we left off in mid July but I think some of us (me!!) will need a bit of swotting up on the words before Saturday - in fact I’ve begun already!
Talking of positive vibes it was great to welcome Richard back to the fold last night after a short spell away. Richard is in the Premier League of bon viveurs so he’ll slot right back in without a problem. It also means that the stage coach to Upper Coquetdale is full once again - it’s a while since that was the case!!!!
And so to Saturday.
Gentlemen, it was great to see you all again last night. Looking forward to a lovely autumn term of good company and superb singing (and of course the toon doing well in Europe [sorry Keith - Hope Sunderland do well too]).
See you Saturday - onwards and upwards VoiceMale.
