Rob59 ✭✭

Good morning everyone,( a special hi to Louise J for having the fortitude to carry on reading the life and times of a complete idiot!) well whats been happening in the chaotic world of Rob59, iv'e obviously had the epiphany of all time as my friend Alison (masquerading as a Kirk of Scotland minister) cane around again to drink my coffee and eat all my cakes; she openly admits that it's only the coffee she likes.I am desperately trying to lure er into playing keys and doing some vocals for us,(next time i'm golng to spike the coffee).The idea of her weekly visit is to chat ,music ,what we did @ uni' and a sort of serious conversation ;oh the best laid plans; ie within seconds it degenerates into an incoherent blether about fairies;elves,gnomesetc and that's before we hit the wine!!!!!Alison makes Geraldine Granger look a positive fire and brimstone preacher ; enough said.Next week she wants to here all about my exploits with sailing dingies and motor bikes;it is at this point that i should say that at no time did i try riding a 'bike deliberately on the water ,it just happened; a story for another day ;and the one where i rode one up a tree ;that one can also keep,ah the innocence of youth (and the stupidity). So for once my chaotic lifestyle has been relatively quiet ;no doubt i'll make up for it over the next few weeks;it really worries me when my life appears normal ,i just don't do normal,never have done!!! So to all of you out there keep yourselves healthy and happy,i'll try to bring further exploits of the Rob59 madhouse,surely sanity cannot prevail for so long, cheers for now ,Rob59 xx

  • Hi everyone, i am probably writing on the wrong page. (Rob 59) Just a quick heads up for all of you read my really dumb missives.

  • Hi Rob59 again(i bet you'r sick of me tonight) it's just a long PS really ;i forgot to mention to my fellow insomniacs that whilst i was writing my last drivel that i was watching Richie Kotzen on u tube(also to be found fronting "The Winery Dogs") so for those like me and hopefully others i have prepared a small list of…

  • Hi everyone just Rob59 here again,just to let everyone who follows my drivel that some good always comes out of adversity. I recently started up with an online dating agency,a woman who lives just down the road answered my clarion call(she probably heard my guitars late at night)she plays the flute so she came around to my…
  • Rob59 It is now some time silly o'clock i hav'nt bored anyone with yet another installment of the happy times at Rob59 Towers.

  • Hi again everyone.:thankyou for your so kind comments. RobertA i thought i was the only person in Britain to have heard of Beth Hart,she is awsome.If you like her please check out the following :Joanne Shaw Taylor:Sam Fish;and associated blues girls..Their are so many brilliant female musicians that they get overlooked.As…
  • Hi its only Ro59 again;i want to say one last thing about my beloved wife and then anything i post i will try to be more positive about and more helpful to others that are in a similar situation;ok here we go. My wife and i grew up 6 miles apart although we only met briefally when i was about 15/16.she was 7 years older…
  • Wow yet again Lou you are so kind;yes i did have a long chat to my sister.i told her what the trigger was that got me so down;it will probably sound crazy but it was the garden being looked after by a good friend(he basically saved my life when i broke my hip;otherwise i would still be on the floor unable to reach a…
  • H i Cat,how are things,I still find it very difficult to chat to people I dont know. If other people have read my posts they (or you) might think i am avery outgoing sort of guy,i play my guitars because they become a barrier between me and the audience;i am in fact amazingly shy.It took years to find my wife,whom as you…
  • rob59 again,hi everyone. As you know by now i somewhat of a musician,can only thank everyone for your unconditional support ,i am honestly amazed at it ,and i reallly thank you all for your input and support,everyone has no idea how much it means to me.

  • May i make a special note to RobertA i am so pleased that something inspiritional has come out of our posts, I have been playing for 50 years so i know how cathartic playing music can be.I can,t play keys bbut the band i played with for a heck of long time had a proffesionally trained pianist,she was awsome.(i told…

  • Hi Lou just read your post,you are inspirational,i have spent all day on the phone talking to my sister,it took me a long time to tell her what my situation was , we play guitar together and i have written a whole new collection of songs about my beloved wife and our lives together,it sounds very trite but to me it is very…
  • Hi Cat,i am Rob59; Just to let you know i am really new at this too.Writing on line is more scary than the illness itself.I recentally lost my wife to cancer,i had previously found out i was terminally ill,and then rather stupidly broke my hip and had to have an emergency replacement;such is life. This post is probably of…
  • Hi Rob, I"m very pleased to hear that your situation has been resolved and that yor wife and "the group" have been so supportive.I have a brilliant older sister whom travels 400 miles to stay and support me.We both are keen musicians(guitars) and key boards ,so that keeps me amused. I personally dont think counselling…
  • Hi Rob, I really appreciate your reply.I am in touch with an excellent MacMillan nurse and her team whom have been very supportive throughout a mind numbingly bizarre and at times surreal few weeks;a kind of 1960s art house movie! I am very sorry to hear of your own serious problems and i trust that by sharing information…
