Friends, family, & music

The Old Blue Bus will be parked for a few days while I enjoy some time with friends and family. I hope all of you will enjoy the holiday also.

This year I am especially thankful for the friends I have made from around the world, right here on the Bus.
I wish you all "Good friends, music, food and drink".
I've left a few tunes for your pleasure.

Learn more about the wonderful American folk music of David Tamulevich and Michael Hough (Mustard's Retreat) here. Gather the Family is from the superb CD "The Wind And The Crickets" available at Amazon.com

Joey, I know that you have been working long hours for some time now, as have I. Some time off to spend with the family couldn't be more welcome.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving, my friend, and give the Mrs. a squeeze and a kiss for me.

What shines through from your blog is that you are in "the right place" (ha! paraphrasing your comment on my Rufus post recently) so I KNOW you and your family will be gaining maximum enjoyment from your Thanksgiving holiday. That doesn't stop me wishing you a great one anyway.
