    Hi Mark

    I promise to not say that anymore! I keep jinxing myself so it’s probably best to just say “see you next time!”

    Thanks for your kind words as well as your understanding and patience.

    Thank you very much. I had no idea how tough it would be to sing and play at the same time. I have a new appreciation for music artists!!!
