Thanks for the update Bones, that is some scary shit you've had to endure, both physically, and I dare say mentally, good luck with your recovery, and by building I assume you mean CBG's ???.

Dave's been recording a lot of Videos lately, but has also been doing it a bit tough with, what I think is a crook back from overdoing it in his garden, and also coping with a loss in his family.

I'm still building CBG's, albeit at a little bit slower pace these days, should stop because I've run of places to put them all, but it is what I call therapy, which I think is keeping me somewhat sane in this crazy world, we now have to live in.

All the best for the future, and  keep positive  :-)

Very sorry to hear about your accident Cobber, sounds like you've been doing it tough for a while, but being a "Tough as Teak" ex Aussie Sailor, I'm sure you'll fight your way back, like Unc I have often thought about you from time to time, and thought you were missing due to your busy renovating lifestyle, great to see your playing a few gigs with your sons band, would love to see & hear some footage of that.

Keep Well Mate, and keep warm, it's been a little chilly up here on the Sunny Coast lately, so I'm guessing it must be bloody freezing down in the Apple Isle. :-)
