........thankfully I only have to play the side drum part to this piece of music twice more. Thursdays rehearsal and on the day at Cheltenham. I have been seriously considering some form of assisted suicide over the last two weeks, but the thought of someone possibly arranging for it to be played at my funeral put me off the whole idea. I am starting to feel like one of those side drum playing playing Bunnies in the old Duracell adverts. Oh well, roll on Skeggy, for a Timp part written by someone who clearly has never set eyes on a set of Timps in his life.
