I missed the big storm at home… fortunately the boys were there to help ‘Nessa clean up!

Yeah, while we were blowing around in that 45 foot Prevost, Nessa and the folks at the Fur Peace Ranch were left to clean up the storm debris.

    The Egyptian photo reminds me of the tour of the Masonic Grand Lodge in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, The Egyptian Room was on of 7 Lodge Rooms in their Grand Lodge, it was like being transported back in time to an Egyptian tomb in one of the Pyramids. Next time you play that area do the tour of the Grand Lodge, it’s free (or at least is was in 1996) and anybody can go on the tour, not limited to Masons or men only.

    What storm? A 5 year old could lift that branch. Now I’m wondering if cows really spun by your tour bus.

    Wonderful to read of good folks bringing pleasant sounds to good folks.

    Hey Jorma. Thanks for putting us on your radar here in Bend. Had a blast. Great to have you and Jack back. Shout out to Myron for doing what he does. Hoping seeing you gives me the motivation to relearn half dozen of your songs again from start to finish. They say it’s easier second time around? Take care .

    Happy Fathers Day Jorma. Love the picture of the long road ahead. Thank You for continuing to travel that long road and bringing live music to those not content to simply drop the needle on the record or slide the CD into the slot. Those methods are fantastic for soothing the soul, but there’s nothing like straight from the instrument directly to the ear.
