Belated greetings

Please belatedly join me in sending Guy Pratt, who celebrated his 50th (I know, I can’t believe it either) Margarita in a row birthday earlier this week, all the very best for the year ahead.

And the same to you, of course: Happy New Year and all that. Hope and reminiscence to follow, naturally, on Monday when normal blogging service will resume.

Guy has been very good to this blog since the beginning; generous with his donation of prizes and time during the On an Island tour, plotting with Irregulars behind my back so beautifully, and so kindly collecting our Best Music Blog award from the very nice BT Digital Music Award people – back in 2007. Because of this, and I dare say mostly out of deep appreciation for his many talents both musical and comedic, I know that some of you would like to leave a message for Guy to commemorate the occasion and as such am happy to provide, albeit shamefully belatedly, a modest space for you to do so.

I’m sorry that they’re late, Guy. Happy Birthday for Tuesday.
