Let your fingers do the talking. Let me know what you think of the show. I promise this will be my last "Walking" show for a long, long while.

I'm here in Vancouver for a Special Ed Conference - It's my Mom's 92nd birthday, I just read an email that my house has sold (homeless as of June 30th!), 9:11 pm here in BC, and so I gotta distract myself so I am going to start listening to your show - much better than watching tv! looking forward to getting to T-Bone and Buddy Johnston!
