Post by Guest Thu May 01, 2008 8:25 am

Hello Chaps!

My apologies in advance for this totally non-Westone, non-Guitar post!

I might be forgiven though when I tell you that I was called out of my bed at 4am today, by my eldest daughter Jennifer, who is expecting her fourth child! Rolling Eyes

Baby number four, a boy, was born at 5.34am, weighing in at just over 5lbs 6ozs, making me a Granny for the Fifth time! cheers

Mother and baby both doing well, bounce but Granny is knackered! Sleep

(Oh God, my other daughter Wendy, is expecting her second baby in a few weeks time; I'll have to go through it all again!) pale

Quick, Gregory, pass the Bailey's; I need it! drunken

Pauline :flower: :queen: (Even more of a 'Rockin'est Granny!' Laughing )

Thanks Neil and Antoine,

I passed on your good wishes to Jennifer when I visited her and baby 'Alfie' earlier this evening. She sends her thanks to you both.

I'm really sorry here chaps, but just this once, I'm going to go all 'Girly' (:queen:) and 'Mumsy' (:farao:) on you by posting a couple of photographs of todays' events!

Granny times FIVE! Pict1017

I know that I said in another post about not putting scary (affraid) pictures up on the site ... well ... I'm being a little bit hypocritical here and doing just that!
This one is definitely not for the faint hearted though! I'm the one with the rapidly greying hair and bags under the eyes! Sleep

Granny times FIVE! Pict1018

There's an idea! I could start my very own band up with all these new additions to the family! How about ...
'Granny and the Sproglets'
? or ... 'Polly and the Pipsqueeks'? or ... (This one's a Corker!) ...'The Mad Moderators' Mob'! lol!

Nice earring! Guitars all the way, eh? Nice kid, looks as healthy as can be.

I strongly encourage you teaching your grandchildren how to play music! Start the band!

Thanks Antoine,

Yep, it certainly is "Guitars all the way" for me and that's my latest pair of guitar earrings! I've even got a guitar shaped watch! Laughing

Well, as for teaching the little 'uns to play music, one of my grandsons already has a guitar, another one plays the violin, my grand daughter sings and dances and my other grandson wants a drum kit, so I'm well on the way with the band already! cheers

As for me, I play a little bit, can't sing and have got two left feet! clown

What would you suggest for a name for the band?

Hiya,
"Electric Mayhem" is taken (Muppets), how about "Young Blood" (ala Leon), "Little Suckers"....Hmmmm...."Do it Again"....They ALL have to be playing Westones (of course)...Let's start a contest for a band name. Winner gets front row seats and back stage passes....Hmmmm...."Ear Splitters"..."Feed on Demand"..."Six Part Harmony" (providing of course Polly's clan doesn't keep on...um..er.. and make it "Ten Part Harmony"). OK, gang the ball's in YOUR court....Let's be creative and support the "Geordie's"....YAAAAAAA

...hang on a minute, fellas - the name is dependent on the musical style, isn't it - if 'Primal Scream' hadn't already been taken, that'd be my pick!!

Otherwise - and this is 'cause they're Geordies! - "Auf weidersehen. Pet?" Laughing

Oh you guys are The Best! That is just so funny! lol! lol!

Heinz Salad Cream
; I suppose that it does look like that, Gregory! I'll have to tell Jennifer that one, and of course, pass on your good wishes, thank you!
Very Happy

If me and my band of 'Rebels' ever make the big time, you guys will certainly get the best seats in the house, I'll even throw in a few Rusks for good measure! The Ribena will be on me!
drunken

Aha! Mr. Confused, 'Wild Thing' will have to be my Theme Tune, and I've just learned to play it too!

Don't forget chaps, Granny times six will be here in just under four weeks time
Rolling Eyes - God, I do hope my daughters find something really good to watch on telly for the next few years! pale

Keep those names coming chaps, and the songs too!
cheers

Oooh, there's an idea for a challenge;
:idea: come up with a list of songs (not complicated ones though) and I'll see if I can learn to play them and I'll keep you informed of my progress!

Thanks again guys!
cheers Very Happy

Well Pollyanna, since you've already "appeared with them" Wink , what about learning something from the Status Quo repertiore :?: (Insert the, "But they only have one tune ..." gag of your choice here ...)

"Rockin' All Over the World" would seem to be as good as any other.

Perhaps you already know that one, or at least, if you've learned to play 12 bar blues shuffles, you're over half way there. Just don't ask me about specifics on that tune - I'm a bass player, remember Wink !

Ooh, good one Gregg! I'll give it my best shot! Very Happy

Now, has anybody got the chord structure for it, (with strumming patterns if possible)?
Wink Tablature is no good though, it takes me too long to figure it out! scratch

Even better still, somebody come and show me how to do it please!!!!
bounce I don't ask for very much, do I? cheers

Just to let you all know that the past couple of days have been a bit hectic around here but I'd like you all to be the first to meet the latest member of the 'Polly Clan'!
Very Happy

Baby Isla-Rose arrived at 1.45am on Friday 20th June weighing in at a healthy (and noisy) 6lbs 8.5ozs!

Ain't she sweet?

Congratulations! Now you’ll have piece seven piece band. Polly and the Pulverizers. Can’t wait for your first album (probably children’s songs I’m guessing).

that's cool!

No Bout, definitely no kiddy songs from this band, just pure rock! Mind you, I think that I might end up doing a bit of 'head banging' myself after spending a few hours with that lot, they are a pretty noisy bunch when they all get together!
lol!
