Comfortably Numb - an ambition fulfilled

Now for two years running, I have realised an ambition I have had for years but didn't know how to go about achieving. I'm a great believer in 'everything comes to him who waits' and sure enough my opportunity eventually turned up.

While cComfortably Numbhatting with the man who arranges Lyme's three firework displays recently, I found him open to the idea that, if I provided the music, he would ask the Euphoria Firework company to do their show synched to the music. So simple. Why hadn't I thought of this before?

And so, for the last two years the firework display that heralds the end of Lyme Regis Carnival and Regatta week (around the 12th of August) has been enhanced by the sound of Pink Floyd.

This year we had a huge bank of speakers, about 14,000 watts, situated at the bottom of my garden. 'Comfortably Numb' blasted out all over Lyme Regis...and thus was one of my ambitions achieved! The following day we had so many calls and texts from people who had really enjoyed the show. Lyme Regis deep sea fishing and Lyme Regis mackerel fishing trips were regularly interrupted by phone calls and I didn't mind a bit!

This spectacular photo was taken by my good friend Michael Schmitz and shows the grand climax to Pink Floyd's greatest track.
