The picture is attached!???!!! Explanation required.
My explanation is that we
were showcasing ABC For Kids Product at The CMAA Industry Awards
Function and I had been drinking. Dobe (Bushwackers) Newton was
compering, however, and was therefore rumoured to be sober at
the time so I think it is HE that needs to explain. (Pat)

I am still playing your albums on air and listeners are
asking where I get the music and it is something different all
the time. I have 3 of your albums up to now and still love them.
As I was writing up my show I am playing one of your tracks on
Monday as I have been asked to fill in for another presenter
and thought I must drop you a line and just update all the bits
Laughter Like A Shield"
"Of Wheels And Wires" & "Through The Cracks"
are the albums I play and I absolutely love ""When
you say goodbye" & it is requested quite a lot."The
toilet paper line dance" is the best and highest requested
on my show & "The
spider song" they are the ones that come to mind at
the moment. When I get requested for them I usually throw in
another one from another of your albums because then the listerners
know that there is more to you than just these three tracks.
All the very best Pat to you and your family.

Finally I have got the time to send you a BIG THANK YOU
for the concert that you did for us at Banfield Theatre. ( Please
accept my apologies for not writing sooner, since your concert
I have been flat out studying and completing exams). Our thoughts
were with you the next day as you travelled the long haul home
and we thank you for "going on with the show" under
The night was a great success, we managed to raise close
to $1400.00, and have a great time in the process. Everyone has
been raving aboutyour performance - I think they're hooked! Our
carers at Kids House have been busy getting together their wish
lists, and hopefully we will be able to fill some of their requests
with the money that we raised. The kids will be thrilled to see
some new equipment.
What normally happens with the concerts, do you go to Wagga
or "South"in general around the same time each year?
We would love to talk to you again about the possibility of a
repeat performance next year, so please keep us in mind when
you are working out your itinery, and coming in this direction.
Once again thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!

Enjoyed you, Karen and Billy Bass at Wiseman's Ferry recently!
Have since seen Billy bloody EVERYWHERE, but never did he seem
so happy as down by the riverside at your gig!!
I was just wondering what the title of the CD meant?
It refers to the amount of time Karen
and I were locked up together in the studio.... she felt she
deserved an endurance award for putting up with me..... I felt
I deserved it for putting up with her. Rod Coe (our producer)
won it for putting up with both of us. (Pat)
I have shared the lyrics of 'Song
of the Quilt' with some quilting friends (and introduced
them to your music)--hope that is OK. These are hardcore, died-in-the-wool
quilters, and your song moved them deeply. Congratulations on
touching yet another precious nerve in peoples' lives.
Forgive my pettiness, but the lyrics say 'when you take it's
folds around you'--and it should be 'its'!!
Sorry! Stuff like that just jumps out at me!!
I love your music!!
That's alright, Mary. I ,too, live
with a quilter. It turns them into obsessive perfectionists.!!!!!!
I could try and blame my computer for the typo but it's even
more pedantic than a quilter!! (Pat)
Hi!From The Sweeney Family
"Jim Sweeney" <Uppagumtree@bigpond.com>
JUst a long note to say that we are now on the web....finally
and that I (Debbie) have become a HUGE fan in the last year or
so.I have been lucky to see a few concerts,talk
to you(I get a bit shy)and we are thoroughly enjoyning Six Days.The
last song When
You say Goodbye is one of those that just makes me nearly
cry.Jim says ..so don't play it as he's not into sad songs,movies
Pat,you are giving me so much joy and laughter and pleasure
with your brilliant music.Especially now that I'm struggling
to bring up our two littlies I find that your songs lighten up
things a bit.The kids and I dance around to"in the Grain".
Some things touch the heart so much and we have been to some
of the places mentioned in the songs- the Lookout over Richmond,the
ferry at Wisemans,we live near
Breeza having come from sydney.Maybe it's because you are in
a similar age group but we can view things from the same perspective
and find that ,like many talented
songwriters,you can put things into words and music that are
IN other words thanks for the fun and joy and keep it up.Dodrop
in one day to our household of mayhem on the way to Tamworth.
Best wishes,Debbie & Jim

You don't know me but I'm a fan from that great waste of
a good sheep station - Canberra!
I first heard you on a couple of the early "The Winners"
Albums - "Laughter Like Shield" and "The Ballad
of Geordie Johnson" and then saw you performing a freebie
show at Parramatta one day - and was mightily impressed.
We went up to Marulan a few years ago to see you there
(I come from out west of Marulan - a little bump on the map called
Big Hill - but it was so miserable that we retreated to the pub
(our daughter was only about 5 or 6 at the time - that's our
excuse anyway)! My dear old (now departed) Mum used to sum up
that part of the world quite simply - "hot and windy or
cold and windy".
I mentioned you to some cousins who are lovers of great
Aussie music and they happened upon you at Jamberoo a few months
ago and also fell under your spell.
Cheers and thanks for helping make us proud to be Aussies.

Just got online and came straight to your site. Keep up
the great work you are doing in letting Aussies see and here

Hi Pat - I've been enjoying your editorials.
It's late and I really shouldn't be sitting up reading
stuff on the Net, so just a very brief comment for now:
Not only did the majority of non-Liberals in the current
Senate actively campaign against the GST, many of the Liberals
did too. Because only
half of the Senate was elected at the last election, the Liberal
members from the election before (not sure of the numbers, but
they'd be roughly
50/50) campaigned on the "never, never" platform with
which Howard was elected the first time.
As you point out, the (Liberal) Opposition's behaviour
in 1975 indicates an acceptance that any mandate exists in both
the Lower and Upper
Houses, and in that case about half of the Liberal members of
the current Senate have a mandate to OPPOSE the GST.
But this "mandate" stuff is just semantics. They
will do whatever they can get away with. The Democrats have lost
a great deal of support
because of their vote on the GST, and this will be exacerbated
once the new tax takes effect. So where to now?
(I vote Green in the Upper House and I think you can guess
where my Lower House vote goes, although when you live in Bennelong
make much difference!)
PS How about an editorial on education - school and higher
ed - and the damage both State and Federal Governements are doing
to the educational
opportunities of Australians. Heard Gus Nossal on this topic
today - eminently sensible and forthright as usual. Cheers.
PPS See you at BMFF.

Just had to email you and thank you for the cd's. "Six days
in December" I love it. You and Karen have really out done
yourselves this time. It was money well spent. I also like the
"Naked Poet" cd. Like your songs on there as well as
"The Mr.Whippy Ripoff" and "Turbulence".
I will give Mr Short and Colin there's tomorrow at school. I
gave Traceys to her already. Karen and your voices sound so good
Let me know when new cd's come out. Would love to buy them. The
kids have already told me to buy the kids one when it comes out.
Congratulations again to both of you.
