Its supposed to be gralla or graella, not sure, tonight, or sex trumpet, as named by my nephew. Its a traditional catalan instrument bit like a recordar but sounds a lot more basic and a lot louder. Its interesting, bit folky and very catalan, they wont be having me swing anything. I got roped into playingit last year and being me i stuck at it bought myself a gralla, which wasnt cheap made of almond,you can get olive or boxus or even tropical wood grallas, i wanted almond because i like almond trees. White flowers in spring to say norhinf of the actual almonds them selves. Its supposed to be our weekly practice whoch i cant get to while Alfred is here and also its seems to have not started up again. The last practice was before christmas. Easy going

Sound of silence

Its been a while maimly because the 2 people that religously read this blog,/one of them has died and thanks to whatsapp i now speak to the other one at least 3 times a week. Kind of negating the need for me letting them know what i am up to.

Still i feel i should keep it going even though like Lorna says about Facebook, its like hanging out your dirty washing for the world to see. Thing is what am i goung to write about? Dont know. I read once a book on how to write books, that practice is important, you should just write it doesnt matter what about but just write. I doubt if i am going to write a book, not yet any way.

Its also something to do while im having a can of beer.
