    You My Brown Eyed

     A song calls my name, it will not be silent. A tinny voice deep within plays on my longing to recreate a memory that is embedded and lost in the folds of my soul. Time to grab the guitar and play.Hey where did we go, days when the rain came. You my.........brown eyed girl Girl

    I've Never Played Professionally

    I’ve never played professionally but love to play at camp fires; small party’s and occasionally at the hog roasts we host in the summer months. Mostly I play when I’m all alone at the old farm and something therapeutic always seems to happen. I forget the...
