John & Darlene at the "All Star Jam" at Celebrate Jesus Coffeehouse
We were Jamming with Darlene, John, Jeff Kiel at Celebrate Jesus Coffeehouse July 22. 2006. Sorry no pictures of Cece, she took the pictures.

We had a wonderful time at the Nite Light Cafe in Berwyn July 14th 2006.
However,
we did not get any pictures, due to getting there late in heavy traffic, problems with my guitars, (Who would of thought that the batteries in both of my guitars would go bad on the same day) and problems with my camera, (I felt like I was an actor in the movie, "The Day the Earth Stood Still"), for those of you old enough to remember that movie. I saw it on TV when I was a kid. I'm not quite old enough to remember it first run in the movies) .
This is a very nice coffeehouse and worthy of a visit sometime.

Cece got a new Tacoma Bass for her birthday (center guitar in the left picture above) so of course I just had to think of a use for the packaging. (Now we have 3 Tacomas Momma, Papa, & Baby)
