WHAT I DID LAST SATURDAY:
Above is a photo of the Bic at Bournemouth,
In other words "Bournemouth International Centre."
It has quite a few conference rooms,
Also three theatres.
Last Saturday I knew what I had to do,
I had to arise earlier and get all jobs done.
Then that done and dusted,
Prepare myself for a long call on the phone.
I dialled the appropriate number,
Was informed I was number 85 in the queue,
Sat on the bed with a packet of cookies,
Reading this you must think me mad....don't you?
I sat there as the queue got shorter,
About an hour at least.
Then I heard the magic words
Saying your call will be next.
A voice from the other end
Said "Can I be of help?"
Have you any tickets left for Daniel O Donnell?
"Just a few" I was informed, me thought oh hell.
How many do you require he asked?
"Only one for each night" I replied.
"Well that would be easy" he said,
I felt so happy I could have cried.
The two concerts are not until next September,
But they are snapped up so fast.
It Might As Well Rain Until Next September
I have something to look forward to at last.
I paid by my credit card,
My heart full of joy.
I felt so excited that next year
I'll be seeing Danny Boy.
