Jazzy: does that mean you played jazz earlier? If so, what kind?
Chrise: Thank you! Kids put things so originally!

Just checking in at lunchtime.
GK I've just been rooting through my old sheet music and that brought back some happy (and some wet-eyed) moments. As soon as I could play, I "had a go" at the ragtime stuff (Scott Joplin) around 17 pieces that were lying around the house. Then followed Winnie Atwell, onto George Shearing, Gershwin, Irving Gordon (heard of him?)"unforgettable" and Fred Coots. I'm getting carried away..... (btw, Magworth and I are huge "Under Milk Wood" fans ! Yours, Mrs Willy Nilly x

Jazzy: I see your computer has got the stutters, too: that's why I was looking forward to a gang of freaks & nerds descending on this little hamlet in summer to cure all my IT problems (see the Snow thread).
As for the music, yes, I know them all. Was always more into rock etc myself, but living in Hamburg allowed me to see just about every concert I was interested in, and in fact I'm very "eclectic" (that's the word, I suppose).Couldn't imagine life without a passion for music, tho' I never learned to play any instrument myself.That's why i was curious!
btw still waiting for my RT5 grid & clues: if it doesn't arrive soon I think I'll have to ask one of you good people to send it on to me, even if it means giving away all my secrets (again)..............

Of course the moment I mentioned the possibility of having to beg s'one to send me the grid etc, it arrived, & I solved it quickly, so no more probs, except booking a field for you in summer : I don't think our lawn will take so many motor homes, & the rest of the land descends at a rather alarming angle into the valley..........

That would be a pity, Jazzy (if I may continue to call you that):I was looking forward to al fresco concerts under the big oak tree every evening at sundown, whatever you play --- and I presume you sing as well?
We must just make sure there are plenty of big strong men around to carry the thing indoors quickly in the event of a hefty thunderstor. the advantage on this hill is, you can see them coming in from the Bay of Biscay. The bungalow was once struck by lightning while we were in it preparing to go out into the almost yellow atmosphere. You do enjoy natural dramas, do you?

The thing has castors, so all you need is some strong rope. After the initial tug, it will roll along nicely. Best to leave the singing to another guest. My Lena Horne impression has long ago ceased to impress. Jazzy x

Didn't receive my RT until this afternoon, but managed all before checking with you. Got 5d but thanks to you for parsing.

Mamya thanks for solving my last week`s blank space. Now for this week`s

14D Consequently below exotic ocean plant (9)
I have ?E?N?T?U?

I see I was wrong about raven too, so maybe I am wrong elsewhere. By the way how did you all who are finished manage to get 2D? I have had to Quick Solve it and have still never heard of that word!!!

Weather report - Still no snow in Glasgow. Maybe, like Pipesmoker, we are protected by some nearby salt water. Glad to see you so chirpy Mr Pipesmoker.
