Well, I’ve reached another milestone. I joined the 60 club in October this year, and I was given a bit of a surprise at the September 30th coffee house.

Sixty years – Can you believe it? For most of that time I’ve been playing music, and I guess I’ll continue until I drop.

My co-host Jan Hall enticed me up on to the stage at the coffee house to help recognize an important artistic milestone for one of the night’s performers, only to find out that she was talking about my upcoming 60th birthday!

Thanks to Francine Leclair for the great cake (which we all shared at the intermission) and to the audience for a wonderful rendition of “Happy Birthday”. Some fine singers come out to the coffee house each month!
