Thread Name: Writing Someone Alive to Say Thanks!
Subject: RE: Writing Someone Alive to Say Thanks!
I guess I would have to say that I have been blessed enough to meet a good deal more than my share of interesting people. And I learned to read at a very early age, so I was able to visit, in the books I read, with a great many more. But you know who I really want to say Thank You to? I would have to say that it would be Caroline and Sandy Paton. Because when they welcomed me into their circle of friends, they introduced me to people that influenced my music and caused it to go down streets it would have never gone without them. Their presence, and the presence of people like Rick Fielding, Dan Milner, Kath Westra, Ed Trickett, The FSGW gang, et al have lent a depth to my musical experience that I am hard pressed to describe. I love them for that and will forever be grateful.

So thanks Sandy and Caroline. I am so proud to know you and be counted among your friends.

Peter, I want to thank you as well. This is going to be a wonderful thread. I am glad that you and I are friends.
