The 2 greatest disappointments of my life

Post  GerhardGerber on Wed Mar 13, 2013 11:21 pm

....and there have been more than a few.....

2. 1994 - Not being able to attend the Jethro Tull concert in Pretoria, South Africa Sad

1. 2013 - Not being able to attend the bonsai show/conference where Mr Walter Pall will be......somewhere on the wrong side of South Africa. Sad Sad

No money (can be borrowed) and no TIME (cannot), so unfortunately Herr Pall, I cannot see my bonsai hero in action.

Cheers
Gerhard

A JT fan, eh? You kept that under wraps. Pity about the bonsai show. And not even any heavy horses to get you there.

Fiona,

Very Happy I'm only 37, so I guess I have no business being a Tullie.....but I am Cool
Exactly half my CD collection is everything of JT I could find through the years. Only pity is they never made worthwhile driving music.

I learned about the bonsai show on this forum few days ago, thought about it and decided to not even research the when/where details....
I live and work is a remote mining town in Southern Namibia, and it's about 20 hours solid driving to get there.
Fuel prices and all things considered it's a no-go

I feel your pain...
The annual AABC convention is Canberra during May, several great aussie artists are demonstrating along with Ryan Neil & I would so like to be there but without dog & tree sitters Crying or Very sad

JT aint bad but 94 for me was all about chasing a red & white ball around a big green table for a title & trying to get the biggest tree I ever dug to survive (lost the final game, won the battle with the magnolia)...

94, I was in London for 6 months, though I lasted only 5 before I got bored, and was buying up Bonsai stock [ elms, sageretia, maples, and so on.]
Still am an 80's music guy. Thomas Dolby, Pet Shop boys, Eurythmics, Art of Noise and so on.
Enjoyed the museums, libraries, and did much research.

High point, watched a Chinese guy in SOHO, push an Elm into a bonsai pot.Years later the pot broke sitting under the full sun, that was an amazing push!
Later will be greater.
