Something a little different...

When I met DH, I became part of his circle of friends. Some of these friends of his, he had known since he was a teenager. Errol was one of these friends. In their late teens, DH and Errol were in a band called Sons of Man. This photo was taken towards the end of the 1960s
DH is in the middle and he was the lead singer. Errol is on the end on  right-hand side and he was the drummer. This next photo shows the band performing at the Enoggera Memorial Hall...you can just see Errol on those drums! 
Now let's move to the present day...
Errol and his wife have recently set off on their 'Grey Nomad' adventure, travelling in their motor home that Errol built. ( he started his working life in the 'coach building' trade) 


We have been enjoying their photos this week and in particular this one taken at Winton...

Don't you love it? Lol. Once a drummer, always a drummer!!

Maria, I worked with a drummer in an earlier life. Sit him at a table with a knife and fork and he couldn't help himself. He'd start tapping away!

Enjoyed reading this story. I didn't recognise Errol with his facial hair. Hope he and Barb have a wonderful time cruising around the country in their van. Rather envious, actually. :-)

I hadn't heard the term "grey nomad" before, but I like it. What a great adventure. My grandsons would love that playground drum set!
