Home sweet home

Home sweet home from our beautiful little island tour, Alice Fraser andHuggybear Leonard rocked it, the trio is really flowing now, the music stellar , great sounding venues, made lovely new friends and fans and sold those cds  Definitely still recovering from the bug but thankful my energy and vox held out and we managed to even take in a few sites. Heartbreakingly though I got word on the road that a dear old friend lost her battle with cancer Friday. On Sat. night we played for our angel Linda, who I know was there in that beautiful old church listening in.
