I arrived in Miami this afternoon, but a day or so ago, this was the sight as I took Vanessa out to dinner. I actually love winter weather… when it is really winter weather. If it’s going to be Winter, let it snow. After dinner getting back to the Ranch, it looked like this:

So… four days late, but no dollars short. The trip to Freight And Salvage for New Years was awesome, but it’s great to be home for a bit! It was more that great to see old friends and to share our music the the folks out west!
