Day sixteen

By this point the days have started to blur together. I realise we’re doing different things every day, but the heat saps the energy out of you and I’ve been waking up at night time, feeling hot and sticky. We, ahhh, did stuff, then – umm – something happened. Well, I think something happened. I hope something happened. Maybe it’s all a dream and I’m in New York still, so delirious that I can’t tell reality from the camp bunk beds and sandy floors of the military barracks in Bermuda.

No, I’m not sick. Although, I am tired. I’ve been informed by a reliable source that I was so thoroughly asleep during the middle of the day that I did not wake up to calling of my name, shaking or tickling, and I was briefly declared dead by Phillippa. However, I managed to rise to a deliberate shout and get ready to leave for St. Paul’s Paget in a minute or two, displaying the skills of a blogster ready to blog at all occasions.

We rehearsed at the church and were provided with a wonderful dinner of lasagne and salad, and dessert of brownies with ice-cream, yuuum! When we eventually performed, we were delighted to be met with all sorts of approval at even the strangest of our songs. It was nice to have an audience that didn’t seem confused and bewildered by the shouts and harmonics, but which took them all in their stride and were delighted by it all. They were even kind enough to give us lifts back to the barracks afterwards.

      I think the accident was the day before this one. He did do the concert with us, just with a chair handy in case it was necessary – kept soldiering on!

        Hi Guys,

        Good to catch up with you all and see and hear what’s been happening. It sounds like a typical/good tour – a lot of hard work and pleasure with accompanying rewards and tiredness.

        Thanks for writing the Blog . You have a very easy, readable style.
        .
        Best wishes for Cincinnati – but above all, have fun and be good to each other 🙂
