Contrast

I was up early this morning. Clint had a job to do. He was taking The Bosh! Boys to the BBC Radio Sheffield  studios in the centre of the city. With my guidance, Clint managed to get Ian and Henry there on time and I have just listened to them being interviewed live by a presenter called Toby Foster.

It went well and the lads came across as relaxed and humble - handling Toby's questions with confidence and ease. I had been expecting a smidgen of mockery in the carnivorous presenter's approach but in fact he was fine, showing particular interest in how social media has grown Bosh!

On Saturday, Ian and Henry were on the front cover of "The Yorkshire Post" weekend magazine and last night they were at Waterstones bookshop in Orchard Square in the centre of Sheffield. There was a question and answer session and they signed copies of the cookbook for the hundred people who had managed to acquire tickets for this event.
As I write this blogpost, Ian and Henry are on a train heading up to Leeds to be interviewed by veteran BBC TV presenter Harry Gration for tonight's edition  of "Look North" - our regional news programme. On Sunday they will be flying to New York.

And here's a special message to residents of America who visit this blog - it is now 99% certain that Ian and Henry will be on the "Today" show on Monday morning - April 30th. If you manage to see their appearance, please let me know how it went.

Meantime the Bosh! father continues to live a more ordinary, low key life without radio interviews or  requests to appear on magazine front covers or transatlantic flights. Today's South Yorkshire weather forecast is good enough for me to be considering another photographic walk in the countryside - especially as my troublesome right knee is pain-free at the moment.

  1. Your day will come...yours and trusty Clint's...just have a little patience, Yorkie! :)

    A couple of those US morning shows are shown here...so I will set up and record them, in the hope of seeing the lads. I hope I am able to do so.

    It's all happening...and it's all happening for the good! :)

    1. It is much nicer to have a vegan trendsetter for a son than a heroin addict or a mass murderer.

  2. I love the way the cover photo has been styled. It's a good thing Clint is a trusty steed, they wouldn't be wanting a lift in some old bomb :)

    1. Did you know that Clint is named after an Australian bunny - currently trapped in a refrigerator somewhere in darkest Queensland?

    3. It's a very good omen, Kylie...it means Clint will have a very long, happy life! :)

      My Clint is Yorkie's Clint's great-uncle. He loves keeping cool in my fridge, particularly during our hot summers. ;)

  5. Onwards and upwards! Bravi! I have a son of plus minus your son’s age so it feels like Ian is like a son to me.

    1. I love Ian more than words can say. I just hope and pray that this has not just been a candle that burned brightly and then went out.

    1. They looked so calm and confident on "Look North" last night. There was a plate of Shirley's vegan scones and homemade jam on the interviewers' coffee table.

  8. I'm looking forward to it! I think you would be able to see the segment either on the Today show's web page or on YouTube.

    1. It's great when people can push TV into the background of their lives. So many have it up close in the foreground.
