Spreading the Joy
It's December 5 and I've done all my Christmas shopping. That's pretty unusual. The cards are also ready and waiting to be written and sent. Again, unusual.

Today may be the unusual day when all the songs on my new album, well SEASONED, come back from mastering and ship right off for duplication.

Have a blessed week!
