Hey world!


It feels so wonderful and summer-y outdoors. As I write this Thursday night, I'm headed to yet another event in Niles. Out in public. With people! And a band! It will be over by the time you read this, but I'm sure we'll have had a grand time.


Here's your virtual mix tape and some other fun stuff.


Take care!
