One Week To The Next…

Last weekend we hosted Happy Traum and Woody Mann. Saturday night Robin and Linda Williams played the show. It was an awesome weekend of music.

Always good to see Happy!

    Thanks to everyone at the ranch, from Jorma and his family (Vanessa and Izze), the instructors (Woody and Happy), the staff: John, Stephanie, the chef and kitchen staff, Kelly in the store, and the masseuse (did I forget anyone?), and the students for being so nice and making it such a memorable weekend. It was all I expected and more. Thanks again.
    Your friend from the desert,
    Patrick B

    Great analysis Arthur. Glad you chimed in. Must be a sweet guitar… Were you front row at the Hot Tuna show at Fur Peace in March 2018? They did a tight and sublime, Living Just For You along with some other jewels.
