Sorry- No News

I'll be in the studio for the next few weeks, so the blog might seem neglected. Check back- hopefully Mark or I will have something to put on here... -T

Joe's New Pipe

Joe Harrison and his new Rad Davis pipe
Mark and I were fortunate to have his 2 sons-in-law accompany us to the Chicago show. Adam and Joe are both great guys and a real pleasure to travel with. They are funny, witty and a lot of fun. I was a little worried that the show or Mark and I might be too boring for them, but they seemed to have a good time. They say they want to go again. I hope they will. -T

Back from Chicago

It's very good to be home! We arrived here late yesterday afternoon and we were all dog tired, but it was worth it. Chicago is exhausting, but wonderful, magical and full of a sense of camaraderie that isn't found just anywhere. Here's a few photos. More to follow. -T
The traveling companions - Adam, Joe and Mark
