ON THE eBENCH : Watch this Space. I am going for one month of writing in the 3rd person ( more or less). Describing a photograph or topic. That should be interesting. Post of 250 words. Leaving ME out of it.


The LUFFLEY CAFÉ is in Murwillumbah. Its small with some footpath eating. Friday Nights, back in 2008, Kel MacIntosh and his Canaries played a strange form of Jazz to a street audience. Kel is the old fella in the middle. The smile of a cherub, has Kel. He’s in his 80s.  On guitar is Scrubby Pete Hurcombe from Murwillumbah way. He’s a Blues Man from the Hillbilly Blues Banditz and on bass is Izzy Foreal from the Zarsoff Bros.

Kel, being an old Jazz Man of Murwillumbah, attracted the Ladies. He almost always received a kiss or a hug. There is a Jazz Club round on the river in Murbah. GREENHILLS, the venue is called. The Tweed Council was most peculiar about where the band could play. Despite the entire street being empty, the band was confined to the shopfront area and forbidden to overlap any other premises.

Luffley Café has some odd quirks and the desserts were not always as tasty as they looked. They did ballroom dancing there as well. They seem to have a connection with a village called Tyalgum. Incomers of course, so there are rippling after effects from tsunamis of Coastal Invasion. On occasion, good looking driftwood is left behind. Luffley is a little frilly for some tastes. Down the road is the original Murwillumbah Café. Booths and all and over the River in Tumbulgum was a wee café called the Birdwing. We certainly eat a lot and drink coffee a lot on the Northern Rivers.
