Greetings once again. It has been very exciting the last few days around my house in Oakland. Mike Strickland (see my music page on this site) has been in town showing his daughter Elizabeth some music schools. She is an accomplished recording artist in her own right. In fact Mike and Elizabeth are doing a little impromptu concert for our neighbors tonight. So if you read this in time come on by. Mike and I did some recording over the weekend. I wanted to get several new songs ready for publication. Look for them in mid April here on this site. We also spent some time collaborating on some songs he on piano and me on harmonica. I can't tell you how good it feels to play with such a fine musician. If you are golfer, picture yourself playing a round with Phil Mickelson. You get the idea......pure Heaven!!!
