This blog is all about me......I come here for respite in between caring for JoJo (our Daughter who has Special Needs)......I am addicted to starting new projects......I am becoming a fabric-a-holic... I love to try out recipes... take a beach walk and breathe in that salty blue to have coffee...sip a glass of a book......I am Queen of the Armchair and am inspired by all the wonderful blogs out there!!!

~JoJo and Mr Armchair visit The Golden Guitar in Tamworth~

While I was learning to do hexagons at Nundle Mr Armchair took JoJo to Tamworth the home of Australia's Country Music Festival

Standing with The Big Golden Guitar
I've never been here before but am planning to go one of these days......perhaps after a GDITC trip

Above and below JoJo looking at a wax figure of John Williamson with his Offsider beside him
(I think his name is) Pixie Jenkins
And my favourite song of John's is 'Wrinkles'......still brings a tear to my eye 

Click above to see John singing it with John Stephan.......absolutely beautiful

We even have a pic of JoJo with the real John Williamson at one of his concerts!!!

Looking at Chad Morgan

One of my favourites......Smoky Dawson
Who can forget the song 'The Old Days of Khancoban'......I just love it

Click above to hear Lee Kernaghan with Smoky singing that song

JoJo with Lee

The much loved Slim Dusty......I reckon his most famous song would have to be 

With Troy Cassar-Daley who co-incidentally was playing here in our town while we were in Nundle

Looking mighty pleased to be here wearing her my James Blundell tshirt

James is above JoJo's left shoulder.......His songs Old Man and Kimberly Moon are my favourites
(I'm having trouble finding clips of these songs)

Proudly displaying her Golden Guitar mug and wearing a 25 year celebratory tshirt
the last one available in JoJo's favourite

I even scored a little gift from Mr Armchair and JoJo
this lovely bottle from Odgers & Mclelland at Nundle

together with a little recipe for Home Made Lemonade
How cool is that!!!!!!

What marvellous fun! I had to double take when I read the title of this post, as there is a Tamworth in England and I was trying to remember "Is there really a golden guitar there?".
Then all was revealed LOL

Hello Jojo, you look very smart in your lovely blue T shirt, I'm happy you had such a good time!

It looks as though Jo Jo is having a fantastic time.

Good morning dear friends! You have SO many fun activities to attend my friend! And JoJo, what a dear....she likes music, doesn't she? I wonder, how does she enjoy your theatre shows and SINGING? You are having so much FUN! Your weather permits so many outdoor activities but at this moment as I type, we are having an ice storm! I guess I better hit the road and start my 25 mile journey to school! Anita
