President’s Message (January – February 2018)

It is 27 November and I am sitting in my studio on a Monday after the Thanksgiving holiday. I am grateful and in the spirit. You see, today is the day I start playing traditional Christmas music here in the studio and it makes me happy. I remember growing up and being with my family. Warm and fuzzy feelings. With the flood and the house in disarray, we had Thanksgiving and we plan Christmas at my daughter’s house with the grandkids (and 12 dogs). I got all excited and said I wanted to try something new under the circumstances and wanted to take them all to a hotel suite for a few nights and have Thanksgiving in a restaurant. Well, I started a riot. I had forgotten about tradition and family and had to back pedal quickly. Maybe next flood.
