They played nearly half of their recent album including a heart-felt cover of the 1960s anthem “Come On People Now.” Always great to see Dave, one of my […]

Old Friends & Old Cars

I made some time to visit a best friend going way back to high school. Although Rob and his wife Julia and I live just twenty minutes from each other, I don’t visit him often enough. I’ll see him now and again at family events as I’m good friends with Julia’s sister Angie and the […]
