We just returned from a 10 day trip to Orlando, Florida - where we spent time with family & friends.  I also wrote 5 new compositions & 5 new charts for a big band called "the Crew".  Then I rehearsed them for an upcoming program. Met some super people 7 fine musicians.  We also, attended the "Tuesday Morning Musicians Breakfast", hosted by Ken Molton. Ed Thomas was there & Debbie Dansby (my string contractor when I had the 'Florida Pops' Orchestra).  JoAnn was there  visiting with her long time friends, JoAnn Dubus & Pam Waller. I can't go to Orlando without visiting my good buddy, Bob Bruce (wonderful Sax man).  So many great talents in Orlando.  Thanks for welcoming JoAnn & me
