I pay my debts, you know. I finally redeemed my freebe offer to Barb Francese, who “purchased” my services at a church auction four years ago. I played at Lauren’s (her granddaughter) school, Jackter IM for all the third grades and some fifth graders. Lots of kids in the music room! Lauren also treated us to some fine Irish step dancing. Mrs. Dostaler made the arrangements and it was a hoot.

Thanks to the New Haven Folk Society for a grant to help bring me up to Colchester. I plan on selling and signing some CD’s to help out the ole wallet, too. Staying alive in CT.

You know, I just want to play….
