Last night was the 'Barn Dance' organized by Irene with the (to me at least) highly embarrassing but very gratifying intention of raising funds to cover some of my ongoing training expenses. As usual I was a nervous wreck until the moment it started - going through dances and music over and again, 'till 3 O-clock the night before (which of course doesn't really do any good at all because at that time of the morning my brain cells are completely dead!) and panicking about the daftest things. In the end there was very little that people didn't seem to enjoy. Irene as usual showed her unerring instinct for a great venue. The staff were lovely, food excellent, the wine served with the BBQ surprising good and people actually got up and danced, laughed and had fun. Irene's brilliant house guests were pressed into service - and were superb - it is impossible to say thank-you in a way that really conveys my appreciation of all the effort time and money involved - from restringing my guitar & doing a brilliant 15 minutes sing-song to the donation of raffle prizes and selling of tickets. One thing I can do of course, is keep going and pass - be assured that is my intention!
