Sunrise at JFK airport, Saturday July 22, 2006
We've been up all night after our original flight was cancelled.
Our home away from home in Owslebury.  How cool is Ian's brother letting our rock band stay at his lovely house?
No, Andy wasn't there when we got there.  This picture was taken later by Tom coming back from a run, but it also shows the house and Ian's Mum to whom we also owe our thanks!
Here's Ian on the phone the week before our tour coordinating the radio interview we did on WinFM.  We're in a friend's backyard on Hayling Island.
Hayling Island - the British Coney Island?
Funland, wimpy Funland.
Rock and roll
Here we are with Sally Gates of WinFM after our interview which had to be taped a few days in advance - before Andy + Tom arrived.
Once they got in we did two things.  The first was go to see Blue State.  The guy on keys was our invaluable fifth wheel for this tour, Richard Stickler.  You'll be seeing more of him.
The second was to head to an amazing country pub for Sunday dinner.
And a few pints...
We ain't in Brooklyn anymore!
After sucessfully picking up our rental car and our rental gear...
... we headed to Winchester to...
... take a break and...
take some band shots!
