On the day after Thanksgiving, known in the retail reality as Black Friday, Debbie and I found our way back home to Indiana, where we wandered down to Metamora and met up with Rick and Holly Garrett and Brian Keith Wallen. Catrina Campbell opened up The Cat and the Fiddle, and we played music together for three hours.
It was a wonderful reunion and a great evening to reconnect with friends. You know you have close friends when you can be apart for eleven months and pick right back up where you left off. We did exactly that.
The hard part was paring down three hours of fun to a YouTube length video.
My music is regularly featured in worship services of DisciplesNet Church. DisciplesNet is an online congregation of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), a church on the internet highway with walls as wide as the world and doors that never close.
