    Sounds like a great idea!

    Steve, Cate and I drove down to Busselton last saturday to check out Albies and purchase tickets.

    Feedback, old pub outside done up nice inside,with resturant, bar and intimate stage area – should look great at night. I reckon holds about 200+ standing.

    Spoke to facility management and asked if there had been much interest and said there had been heaps. They only recieved their tickets that day and C n I got #1 & 2. Tickets should start selling quickly and I'll get the message out on facebook and any other forum I can.

    So we'll see you there and can't wait to see the show. Really hoping to meet you and shake your hand and say thank you for a lifetime of great music and performance. I respect your stance in the music biz (whatever the hell that is) and is one of the reasons I listen, read and contribute once a year. Hope there's lots of merch, want to get a T for c and a print.

    Much love to you and your family and hope that your break gives you a chance to unwind.

    (Andrew & Cate)

    What up wit dat?

    stealthblue | 27 October 2009 at 11:25 pm #

    Yeah, no doubt. Have a great vacation! I hope you can let yer mind cool down a bit, grease those gears and what not. Have a GREAT time!

    It's funny how some people ask, "a vacation from what???" Ha-ha-ha. Like it's ALL glamour and riches, eh, Kilbo? πŸ˜‰

    Go on and enjoy yourself and your family, wherever you are. Sometimes, that's just it right? Being somewhere different, not doing the usual routine. Although I have found some "holidays" to be down right exhausting!! I hope you get the chance to just…chill, sleep well, eat well, love well, etc..

    Cheers to you all, and I hope ALL of you get a chance for a vacation if you need it. I reckon we all do. πŸ™‚ Just do it. Even a "stay-cation" is better than nothing. Sometimes, those are indeed the best.

    It makes me laugh when you get heaps of comments when you don't post a blog and there's nothing really to comment about, BUT, we keep coming back again and again and again…..what'sa going on? (I know, "get a life"!!!)

    Anyway, I got my tix for the Corner, woohoo, it's "selling fast" apparently, so you Melbourne people better buy up NOW!! I can't wait, it's been toooooo long!!!

    Here I was thinking that you needed a break as you have quite a busy period coming up, but I just realised that there is a method in your madness. It appears that not only have you been logging on and publishing comments, when you should be chilling out with the fambley, but when your followers are so used to having their daily fix and stimulation provided by you, within a couple of days withdrawal symptoms kick in!

    So what's a gal to do? I'm always listening to either your good self or the church, and I've played and replayed my SK Live DVD, so there was only one thing left I could do to relieve my need for stimulation in your absence…

    I've been shopping at the Merch again! Yippee!!! I'm sure the thought of receiving my latest purchases will keep me calm until your return, but perhaps you already knew that some of us would succumb to our desperate need for words/lyrics of the calibre only you can provide, in which case this β€˜holiday’ of yours was quite a clever, not to mention cunning ploy. Haha!

    Seriously though, hope you got plenty of R & R and come back to us full of thoughts, feelings and concepts you can't wait to share.

    Ok, spacetraveller, you must now come back to earth, fingers on the board, tap, tap, tap……

    Actually, looking at the picture a bit closer, it DOES look like you've dyed your hair red!…but you've always had a touch of ginger in your hair from memory. Either way, it suits.
    Ciao for another day:)
