Let me start by introducing myself! I am Mr Barry Morgan the ultimate organ salesman from Barry Morgan's World Of Organs.
My goodness shoppers let me tell you how excited I am to be leaving Australia, travelling to Scotland and demonstrating my organ at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and yes shoppers.... the organ is for sale!
This will be my first trip overseas...unless you count my bi-annual trip to Kangaroo Island for the odd home organ party!
Anyway, things are very busy at The World Of Organs, my lovely organ shop situated in the Sunnyside Mall in the city of churches Adelaide, Australia. Well... if you haven't found my organ shop by now then try my 'store locator' on the interweb... just put 'organ joy' into your search engine and you'll be sure to find me.
But I digress shoppers, back to my preparation!
Yes, you could say I'm burning the candle at both ends, although I do know which end I prefer... the one that lights my shingle outside the store, as I am getting ready to share the joy of the organ with you.... my dear international friends.
Let me be honest with you, I am fast becoming... the most famous organ salesman in the southern hemisphere. I can't keep up with the demand for 'organ advice' from all kinds of people including celebrities and the commoners.
The organ is prepped and ready for the voyage out into the swell of the North Atlantic Ocean and yes... my Trusty Toyota Crown Royal Saloon has been waxed, twice and a bit more... so she won't gather any moss or rust amongst the seamen and possibly pirates! My goodness, my nerves, excuse me whilst I pour another Campari. Ahh! That's better.
I wonder...will I be able to get a Campari in Scotland? Do they make a single malt variety?
During my organ demonstrations in the famous Underbelly venue-cathedral-type of stadium space, I am planning to move among you.... my dear international friends and surely secure a couple of 'private' organ demonstrations. Now remember ladies and gentlemen, the organ is for sale and must be sold and the most effective way to close the deal is a home organ demonstration in the privacy and comfort of your own loungeroom complete with my very popular 'organ party' catering pack including many fine recipes utilising Australia's favorite fruit...tinned pineapple rings!
Now as I prepare to cast off the shackles of my former colon-istic existence I must be honest with you ...my dear international friends I have always felt a kinship with Scotland and I'm sure Clan Morgan would feel the same. I am lead to believe the Morgan's who went north became the MacKay's and the Morgan's who went far far south became... organ enthusiasts! Ha ha ha.
No, seriously shoppers I am on the hunt, for some Tartan actually a lot of Tartan. You see I'm as keen as mustard (not the hot English type) to make my own Kilt, especially fitted out for my organ-ic Aussie lifestyle requirements, more on that in a latter letter! (editors note - It's a Blog Barry!)
Well it's time to get off and polish some organs and remember shoppers... a dog is for Christmas... a Hammond organ is for life!
