MY APOLOGIES

If you had to wait:

first priority upon walking in the door next time...come right to me!!
I'm sorry for making you wait and I know how that feels

I can't get a picture of everyone...especially if I'm playing.
If there's a shot of you out there send it to me.

If you want one of these shots email me and tell me specifically which one
and I'll send you a file big enough for a 5 X 10

MY THANKS

To the great players all night long. Jazz, Blues, Fusion, never a dull
moment...super creative!

To the young new elementary students and wood shedding college
players...awesome!

To Grumpy's BBQ for believing in all of
us and having parents, kids, and crazies like me and G-Man George!

To everybody who came, played, ate and drank.
Keep coming back!!
