Hi ....my name is Allan and I'm now retired but still need to keep some money rolling in which is why I joined WA after trying quite a few other on line businesses that somehow never delivered the goods....but being an optimist keeps me forever hopeful.
I was a professional musician for many years from aged 16 and played drums originally in the UK then traveled the world as a free lance player and then settled in Sydney Australia where I was active in the jazz scene and recording studios.
Eventually I opened a music store which went well for 13 years but a nasty disease got me and put me and the business out of action for a while (all ok now) and I then tried a few new ways to earn a living....real estate, mortgage broker etc but eventually decided that I needed a simple uncomplicated life and started a service for florists delivering their orders which I did until last year when my wife, Lesley decided that we should retire to the lovely Central Coast region of NSW about 80ks north of Sydney.
As it turned out I was the only one retiring as Lesley decided to keep working for a while!
But that's ok as I love living here in Woy Woy ( a town so nice they named it twice)....I do an hour or so practice on the drums every day so my chops are the best they have ever been....all I need now is for someone to offer me a gig! (Never gonna happen).
I have 2 grown up kids from my first marriage and 6 grandchildren - the 2 oldest recently married (no not to each other) so I guess I can look forward to being a great granddad sometime soon.
