To my surprise, someone taps me on my shoulder and I couldn’t believe that it was Carol Gadd. I haven’t seen her since 2008 at my first gallery showing in Scottsdale, AZ.

Thank you Cathy Shaffer for taking me to this. Music is my universe and it heals my soul!

 At a show in Vegas. What you can do with blowing bubbles! It was an amazing segment of the show at the Orion in the Cosmopolitan Hotel.  The best I can do since getting up at 4am. On the plane and ready...now where are those chips???  My booth is next to this newly signed band #Wicked on SONY Orchard. Vinny Appice and I had our photo taken with these guys from Upstate NY. #KISSExpo
 Here’s something to start my lunch @gordongram. Can’t wait for my FarmHouse Burger! Yum!  Ready to go to #LasVegas! It’s been awhile. The ride to airport was not pleasant. Driver had no idea where he was going.  So nice to see my friend Lydia Criss!
 Just landed! I need to stretch.  Made a pit stop to say Hello to The Cowsills! Love these guys. They have a sold out show here at The Cutting Room. I have one more venue to hit before the night is out. #theCowsills #thecuttingroom  Remembering ... always will.
