Won’t bore you with holiday stories such as how we managed to almost miss every single plane we had to catch. A grand time was had throughout though — Dublin was a blast, the Aran Islands magnificent and Galway a feast to the eye (more on Flickr). Not to mention the fact that with my bright orange beard, I fitted in perfectly — to the point where people were asking me for directions!

On to the show you say? Oh, of course. This week’s boot: Seattle Center Arena, October 2 ’81.

    Wanted: a beige bag with “Jeans Wear” printed on it, containing a leather jacket, a Woody Allen biography — and sadly: my sketchbook…

  2. You can imagine what a privilege it was to have Barry himself in attendance!! And with his one and only tie (and his one and only Doctor too)! Mon dieu! And David, I will of course be in touch as soon as the email is set up again, although I still don’t know how long that will be (am on a borrowed computer as we speak)……….
