It’s my last day on Ash’s tour. I’m gonna miss Benny, Ash’s percussionist, a sturdy-hearted Australian gentleman. I’ll miss watching Benny rhythmically hammer a car door every night onstage. I will not, however, miss carrying the aforementioned car door back and forth between the van and the venue each day. Mind you: If you’re planning to get married or commitment-ceremonied or partnered in any way in Australia, you ought to consider doing so on Benny’s island retreat up North.
