I would give anything to be there, Sis! Unfortunately, we’re in a “black-out” time at work which means no vacation time till Christmas is over. *sigh*

If the big winner in AZLand has come forward I haven’t heard about it yet.

Hope for their sakes they have hired a good lawyer & stay as low on the radar as they can for as long as they can!:)

I started listening to him as a teenager...guess I never thought about how old he was.

Such a talent. He will live forever through his music.
