The Friday Musical Joke and a few musings on the Mill Hill Music Festival

 It's Friday, the sun is shining, the Mill Hill Music Festival starts tomorrow and all is well with the workd.

As is a long standing tradition on the blogs of Barnet, started over a decade ago by former Citizen of this Parish, Vicki Morris, we start the weekend with a Friday Joke, and fittingly it has a musical theme. I am endebted to Robert Wilkinson for a cracker!

As the festival starts tomorrow, we are on the final preparations,  big worry is the weather for Sundays lunchtime open air gig at Finchley Nurseries. The forecast is heavy rain and thunder storms. If this does not change, then unfortunately, we'll have to postpone this, which would be a real shame. Please pray for sunshine or do a sun dance for us around the garden!

I am very excited. My old mate Johnny Shillibeer, an amazing singer songwriter, with a real George Michael voice hs come over from his home in New Zealand to appear at the Adam and Eve on Saturday. Johnny is the younger brother of one of my best and oldest mates. He grew up hanging around at our gigs and rehearsals and developed into a great musician, he moved to NZ a decade ago and I've nit seen him since, so it will be a treat. Hopefully a few old mates will also show up.

Anyway, onwards and upwards.
