We missed you, George!  Do whatever they tell you to do in Cardiac Rehab, so you can get back to doing the things you wish to do!  I know many were not able to attend either due to their own health issues, or those of family members.   You were all missed.

Many THANKS to those who planned and organized our 50th Class Reunion.  It was a fun event visiting DMHS classmates, recalling old memories, and feeling young again ..... well, sort of.  Thank you!! 

P.S. George you were missed and I hope your recovery is uneventful.

George ~ You and Connie were missed and I was surprised that you weren't with us.  Guess you had a good reason not to!  Our prayers are with you for a speedy recovery.  We had a great time and as always the time was over before I felt like I got to visit with everyone.  So pleased that we had this time together with our friends.

The 50th Class Reunion looked like everyone had a wonderful time.  I wish I could have been there to celebrate with all my classmates.  Thank you to Barbara and Tommy for the pictures.  George Pope I am praying for your quick recovery.  Take it easy and do what your doctor says.  Go Eagles!

So sorry that Jim and I couldn't make  the trip. It looks like a fun time was had by all. It's a long way to Ft. Pierce and I am nursing another hip replacement. I'm hoping to see everyone in 5 years. We missed getting home, but Pensacola is a long way. Thanks Barbara & Tommy and others for all the pictures (and names). I wouldn't have recognized everyone. Special thanks to the organizers; what a lot of work it involved! Sure hope another reunion willl happen in 5 years!

That's a Robert Cray song that Gary borrowed for his album "Battleground".  Warren Haynes (the Allman Brothers & Government Mule) played the lead guitar on it.  Somewhere I have a preliminary version where they jam it out.  I have about 15 hard drives and when I run into the other version, I'll MP3 and send it to you.  Gary plays a bit of the lead on the alternate version jam.

This is one of my favorites.  Gary and Billy Eldridge saw a billboard in Tennessee advertising a locally favorite beer and the motto on the sign was "The Finest Product of the Brewer Art".  Of course, their jobs in Nashville at that time was to write songs and songs are anywhere you get an idea.  Another on that cd I sent you that is a favorite is "The Gold Bar Stool".  It is actually hard to pinpoint a favorite because I have so many.  Many of those song were from the 60's and country music kind of funny at the time...I got a tiger by the tail it's plain to see......

Let's Go Jukin' is one of my favorites.  Gary wrote it with Dickie Betts of the Allman Brothers.  We did the demo for it in my studio back about 1988.

Oh wow, love to dance to the oldies.  The music had a good beat.  The music of today does not prompt me to dance.

 It is with great sadness that I report the passing of one of our associate members.  I received word that Bill Franklin passed away on New Years Eve Morning.  He was at the reunion last June and I am so glad I got to spend some time speaking with him there.  He was always such a likeable person.  

I will post an obituary as soon as I receive it from his brother Mike.

He was a good guy and a lot of fun. I will miss my Freind.

Like others, I am saddened to hear about Billy Franklin.  I so enjoyed seeing him at multiple Dan McCarty events.  He was faithful about attending and drove a distance each time to participate. I had some lovely conversations with him.  RIP Billy ~ you will be missed.

In case anybody hasn't heard,  the Class of 1970 is having their 50th Reunion in March.  The price if $50 per person and we are invited.  Just join their class as a guest and you can sign up there.  I'll see you there if you decide to go.  Cal McDermid wants the remaining guys from Tradition's Children and me  and who knows who else to play some music while the "hired band" takes a break.  That should be fun.  Last I heard they were trying to get the Humdingers.
