Season's Greetings to one and all. Posted by Hello



Roger, Jill and Judy Dog step into a snowy Breughel scene.

Not a lot to report. Jill’s shoulder is still bad, which is not good news. It’s been like it for several weeks now, since she slipped over on some leaves in London. It doesn’t seem to be responding to treatment very well.
Last night James came over and added the lead guitar to the Molecules album. Although we’re off that as a name. How about What Wanda Wants? Any good as a name? Spent today working on it. It’s nearly done. It’s a bit of a mess. I think it might be an anti-climax. Doubts, eh? I expect it was the same with Paul and John.
Other than that just general preparations for Saturday. This could well be the last blog until after Christmas - although hopefully I'll pay a call on my new blog acquaintances and friends in the next couple of days. Have a good one everybody.

Sorry to hear about Jills shoulder. hope it's better soon. Thanks for the nice card in which you look remarkably like our old chums barry and yvonne, so at first i thought it was a card from them. have you grown a beard roger?
Crumbly crimble wishes to you both and hope santa brings you all you wish for.
Hazel and Archie send their love too.

Merry Christmas to all...
Where did Jill find leaves to slip on in London??? Hmmm... didn't Adam and Eve slip on some leaves on the way out of the garden ??? and why fig leaves when they'd been eating apples ???
Didn't Robin Crozier have "Wanda" patented ??? or am I mistaking that for her patent leather shoes ???
I'm so confused.

Hope you have a happy Christmas! And I hope your wife get well soon!

Your picture sure reminds me of Christmas as a child out on the farm in Alberta. We would spend hours tobogganing all afternoon and into the night, down hills in our fields, only tiring when we were so sleepy we could hardly pull our toboggans through the snow.

Sorry, that was me, not anonymous. By the way, the light in the picture is great too. The snow would light up an overcast day, and the moonlight on it at night would make it as light, seemingly, as is an eclipse of the sun.

Well, Jonathan. Robin and Wanda were inexorably linked, it's true. I don't know if you can copyright a name. Surely he didn't invent the name did he?

What Wanda Wants is the first track on the album. I did think of maybe dedicating the song to him.

I don't know why thinking of a name is so problematic. It's only a one-off gig by a made up band.

How about The Zig Zags? Macadamia? Plankton? The Singlets... dunno... help!

No, Michael, I haven't grown a beard.

Jonathan said...

Roger... didn't mean to cause a dilemma... was in a mood last night...
use "What Wanda Wants"... dedicate the song to Robin...
better than the others... or "I've not, groan, a beard".

That's a very hairy scarf you have wrapped round your neck then!

Roger Stevens said...

Do you think I should grow a beard?

A Happy Christmas one and all.

And a peaceful new year.

I really like "What Wanda Wants"...
nice sound...and if dedicated to
Robin, double the deed!
Hope Jill is better by the time
you get this...sounds like a nasty
fall!
Good cheer to ye both, then.

Yes, you should grow a beard, but grow it on the window-sill so it gets the full benefit of the early morning sun.

Hi Roger!
A prosperous New Year to you and your family!
