On this, the fifth anniversary of my first blog posting I want to thank every single person who has ever read my letters and taken a minute to write back. You have made my life richer, deeper, and happier. Here is a little thank you present. Just this morning I learned about this band from my Vermont pal, and I cannot thank her enough! I LOVE Alabama Shakes. I bought their four-song EP at the website, and it is fantastic.
