saturday 28 jan 2023. Johnny Black was at the Burren
watchin' that Buffalo Tom dude do a Stones tribute thang. I et bangers
and mash (coz Ringo likes 'em! watched 1960 Coronation street on
youtube the Monday coz Ringo did; better schnozz than me though).
No Strings Attached, Burren front room, acoustic trio; I thouroughly
enjoyed the band's "Ophelia". Heard "Midnight Rambler'
in the loo; sounded great and great acoustics; forget pub rock;
loo rock! Caught up to Johnny, we et sushi across the street at Gengi Ya. We discussed Cables reunion
plans, photos etc. Then he showed me fishing lures.... BUT - dead People fact: dedham,mass. his mother's
ancestor and my mother's ancestor did business together in ye olde
towne AND his ma's ancestor married ma's Draper ancestor in ye Dedham,
so by marriage, we iz cuzzins! No need 'arguing with ghosts";
cables here thee cometh!"......
