Hey Copper,

It's "game on" this Friday, March 8, with "We Can't Dance Together."

I hope you'll tell your friends to listen, and I hope this exposure will sell some books for you.

I've been back in the US for a week seeing to the tornado damage on the family cotton farm in Limestone County Alabama.  I'm back in the saddle now.  Would love to hear from you. -Alan
