So, it seems simply having a blog is not enough - one has to post to the dam**d thing as well!
Being an extraordinarily busy performer it is tricky at times to find the space to compose suitable entries.

Take last week as an example - 7 nights spent slaving over a red-hot sound desk, balancing microphones, firing off sound effects, all so a large number of people I scarcly know can strut their stuff on stage in a piece of 'theatre' that I was no closer to understanding the purpose of by the end of it than I was at the beginning. Z'ounds! Bethink me 'twas too much sirrah!!

And the marked improvement in the weather means I can't even use rain as an excuse to avoid the garden.

Ah, well: at least it all keeps me off the streets - making them much safer for other drivers.

At least, in that outfit, there is very little chance of Mr Chuckles being knocked down.

Speaking as one who hardly knows you, it seems to me that you may too easily allow yourself to be put upon by needy strangers desirous of your great expertise. Hence the recent week balancing and letting off which you have described.

I'll bet you give tuition to other aspiring clowns too at the drop of a pair of baggy trousers. And that you just let them contact you at any time with their novice clowning questions, always having a kindly word and some well-observed advice for them borne of your greater clowning experience.

For which they will owe you a greater debt of gratitude than most of them will ever acknowledge.

Am I right, or am I right?
