Has anybody heard from Don Lewers lately? The situation in Australia looks absolutely horrific and I’m praying that he is ok.

Don logged in yesterday. If it helps, his part of the world (Brisbane) is not affected by the fires. Not directly at any rate, however there could be incidences of thick smoke based on what the prevailing wind direction is.  I'll contact my bro', he lives in Brisbane but I suspect the city is OK.

Maybe you can contact Don direct via email. He'd appreciate your sentiments.

Thank you, Chris. Glad to hear he’s in a good location. It looks the whole country is on fire.

Jim and Bob, I've had confirmation (from my bro' who is a retired fireman) that Brisbane is pretty clear of smoke.



cheers,

Chris.

Thanks for your thoughts and concern Jim, Chris and Bob .... luckily, here in Brisbane, I'm in a pretty safe place. The current fires down in Aus. are truly horrific, and the worst ever on record. Right now, it's the very start of the bushfire season, with an upcoming hot summer to contend with yet!. We're all praying for rain, and lots of it. 



I've been working on three tunes, hopefully I'll get them recorded and posted soon. Thanks, and all the best, Don.



Jim and Bob, received your emails fellas, I appreciate your kind words!. .... Don.

Good to hear, Don. Looking forward to the rain and those songs. All the best.

Glad you're safe Don. Hope it pours!
