|Message:||In this holiday week I have now, I have time to think what do with "all my money" my mother left over to me.
And I have to take care of her expensive rented flatt here in Hilleroed, build around 1998 - so new people can take over - almost 6-10 weeks from now!
THE "goverment people", say to me today the first, just over 100.000 US dollars mother left cost nothing - NICE!
The rest you have to pay 15% tax.
My mother was a gentle, nice woman, work hard, she have a educations in my father fathers firm, she start there around 1937 and after I was born, she clean floors, and so on... and later she was taking care of mÿ father and older sister, when they was alive at my mothers house.
House was in not so good shape, was sold 2001 for "nice money" - but place it was laying was good - near to center of town and railway station.
My mother grown up in a not so rich family.
My father was very well educated, BUT money was not so much of interest (as I look back on him).
Work was more, that money was for him!
Mother wanted me to have "more than enough", when I was "left alone", as I am now.
Money was for mother = SAFETY - nice and good at same time!
BUT as many parents around - they grown up in war time and money "was small"!
It`s so easy for me who was grow up with a "silver spoon in my mouth" in many ways.
In a way "I have enough already", so thats why I so much wanted to make a "cheap concert" (piano, guitar ONLY???) here in Hilleroed or maybe in Copenhagen with "my friends" JIMMY WEBB and maybe some of the "Newbury`s Kids" (Laura and Chris), plus maybe a music-"Nanny" (read Jonmark) to play a same concert with Jimmy.
Sometimes I like to make a "free concert", but maybe I more like 50 people to come an pay who loves, Mickey and J.W.s music, instead than 300 people where maybe some of then suddenly left, because the NOT ARE FANS!
I you NOT know Jimmy loves to play for smaller crowds, telling music story`s and play "a lot" of his world evergreens.
J.W. is a FIRST CLASS pianist!
Hope I am NOT TO NAIV, but hopefully ALL (NEWBURY & WEBB) wanted to come someday to PLAY and see some parts of my country at same time.
I fully aware Jimmy MAYBE not are interested to come, BUT BUT - it`s ME!!!
I know I can J.W. to play for a good deal - maybe flight-ticket cost!
And if Laura "Newbury" comes, maybe also J.W.s "new wife" Laura also will show up.
My "music-friend" in Copenhagen IVAN (who many years ago have a group call LABAN - also reach US charts)- is today the head of the Danish songwriters, maybe want to make a music seminar with Jimmy at the same time.
I know I HAVE TO AS EXPERT AROUND, how to do - maybe include insurance, a place to play, maybe needed a trustfull promoter.
BUT maybe this music guy IVAN, have all this people, connections around in his office in Copenhagen.
Maybe even some of the big BEER factory`s have foundations, have money to put in great "music ART" as I thing both J.W.s and Mickey music is.
I know some of the cost I can "cut off" on my tax bill, maybe to promotor and so on...
he concert must be sometimes open for all, when you can rent cheap a place to play.
Maybe you can donate the concert to AIDS other organisations.
I ALSO think I can (NAIV there too) I can get the BIG National Danish Radio to recording such a show - BUT as told before I knew so many "important people" there and some in show business - but such people maybe NOT think I am so important - when such a show "is on way to run"!
I have 3 more holidays weeks here in August, September - one of the week is in Bulgaria on a nice new hotel - cheap country to visit - one of the cheapest in Europe so far!
Take care and one more thanks!
