I've got the fire going good - I will BBQ the turkey in a while.
My daughter, Katie, got in last night, with her dog.
Both grandmas and my son will be here this evening.
It will be a wonderful ThanksGiving Dinner.
And then Jean and I will disappear to St Augustine Beach for the rest of the weekend.
I give thanks!

Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival

On November 15, I had the thrill of joining hundreds of other songwriters as a guest writer at the annual Frank Brown Songwriters Festival on Perdido Key in FloriBama land. Jimi McKenzie shared a writers in the round session with James H Williams and a very young Monroe Hamit for an hour at the Perdido Key Resort in the Sandcastle Room. The real thrill was that we were followed by a group of writers that included Tim Johnson, Steve Williams, Thom Shepherd, and Lance Miller. Since they have a bunch of hits among them, we ended up with a pretty good crowd!

And wow, Reneda and her team really treat us like royalty!
