my daughter Britta, Sharidy, and  Britta's long time friend Christi Piper Leigh having a blast at the Artichoke in Wichita Since this weekend, Piper and Mark have gone separate ways. Piper now has a group called Piper Leigh & The Smokin' Section. Check out her web page (link is in the "About this album" section at bottom of the main index page). You will also find pics of her new band on my Music Scrapbook. Britta's boyfriend, Jamie (left),  working on some VERY important business. :-)
a pregnant Christi and her hubby Mike relaxing after dinner. (Christi asked me to "crop" out her food. OK, I will .... real soon! ....  I promise... )  Christi had a baby girl Brenna just a couple months later. Britta lookin' at pics. Mark Bowling, also an accomplished singer/songwriter, sings some of his tunes. Check out his web page (link is in the "About this album" section at bottom of the main index page). DSCN2602 then I get to through down...  :-)
on the left is Tim Durham who was part of the trio that I joined in 2005. Tim is a monster picker - covering just about every instrument.  He is also a good songwriter. Check out his Facebook Page (link is in the "About this album" section at bottom of the main index page). It had been almost 4 years since the three of us performed together, but it was the proverbial "bike ride." (l. to r.) long time friend of my daughter, Christi Madden, her husband Mike Madden, my daughter Britta Blackwood, and her boyfriend Jamie Rheem. my nephew was there that night and gave me a hard time about the Atari shirt. I'm the one that got him started him in computers in the late 80s using an Atari 130XE. Heck my first computer was an Atari 800 in 1982. Still have it. DSCN2612
