CD last month. It will hopefully be out by the end
of the year.

very pleasant surprise!

Mini-Tour proved to be a big hit. The CD Release Party was a

found on tunes like "By
the Case". Dr. Bob even pulled a fast one on Rafe and used
the Case" in his stage production of the play J.B.
What a great surprise! A big thanks to all of those involved
in helping to make the weekend such a raving success!
