'protect your family by paying for funeral costs in advance'....
Great picture of these musicians. I hope they played good and did not scare the dead wink

Some of those funeral schemes here have been found to be a real rip off
Bill Phillips: I have told my lot just to bung me in a bin bag and take me up to the tip for recycling

There's many a good tune played by an old fiddler... or something like that.

Here's to some good fiddling in 2013 smile
Bill Phillips: I can't but agree Alan ....cheers!

It is a b&w photo - but I like the living, vivid scene you have captured here- and I remember all the colours you did show us in the last year - yes, we should enjoy every day, every moment - at death's door (and I have lost some very dear persons this year) - the music goes on - we don't have to dance but let us listen to and enjoy ... - my best wishes also for you and your your beloved ones in 2013!
Bill Phillips: you have suffered sad loss this year Philine but you are right we should enjoy the gift of every day. Thank you for your kind wishes and i look forward to seeing you in 2013

And the Rolling Stones think that they are old.
Bill Phillips: Actually this lot are all younger that Charlie Watt......... probably
And one to be proud of Bill.
Bill Phillips: I have taken quite a few of this lot as Mick on the left is a good friend of mine.

Happy New Year, Bill! Nice B&W. I love the shadows.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Helen. A happy new year to you too
I love street music, takings must be down for them this winter.
Bill Phillips: Mick and his mates raise quite a bit for the local Acorns Children's hospice. I always tell him that people are paying them to stop
Great music, great 2013. Cheers Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thanks Juan Carlos. A great 2013 to you too
A silent band. Good photo. I love the sublime mile on the one person smiling.
Bill Phillips: it is probably wind Mary
They look like they are not planning to call it a day anytime soon Bill. A nice note to end the year on
Bill Phillips: Once they start there is no stopping them Janet
Good shot, Bill, A happy new year to you.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Frank andf the same to you too
I'm guessing from the line-up that it's a jolly tune to see the year out with Bill, all the best for 2013!
Bill Phillips: They tend to play quite cheerful stuff Fred!

The message and the codgers. If you don't have family don't worry, let the bank worry.

Another great year for you lot Bill and Ebbie.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Louis. The pig celebrates the Jewish new year. I think it is some perverse humour on his part.

Happy New Year Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thank you Anne and to you too
Smiled at Chad's comment, yes probably younger, but have not indulged in youth preserving hard drugssmile
Bill Phillips: I often smile at Chad's comments John. I think this lot have probably only ever indulged in a modest amount of alcohol
They are in their music Bill! Fine capture.
Happy New Year's Eve to you and yours!
Bill Phillips: Mick on the left is a good friend of mine and we have written some songs together. I don't do public appearances though! A hsppy new year to you and your family too
