I relish the chance to land back among my CT friends for some real time with Ron and Suzie and some picking time with some really good friends. Tonight I got in early and caught up with Ron and Suzie at their humble country home – marvelous hospitality off the road for me.

A couple of friends showed up, Bill and Frank, both good pickers and country singers and more. Ron is as good as it gets. Together we share tunes, beer, cheese, dogs, stories and songs around the kitchen table. So very fine…..

I get to bring out my newer tunes, noodle on mandolin on their tunes, and swap some good stuff that only true friends can share. These are precious times among friends. Priceless. It’s why I go back to CT, in spite of some dark memories. These folks gave me an anchor during my ten years up there.
