with Suzanne Davenport and Jim Petrie.
We will miss our friend and collaborator Suzanne Davenport who recently passed away.
It was a good thing we had while we had it going! She was a great person with a big heart and great energy. We were blessed to have worked with her.

I'll be blooming in your garden "Some Sunny Day."
The lyrics to this song are a nod and wink to the Rolling Stones
and the Byrds.
