"You guys have been a part of my tears and cheers for over 20 years. I'm sitting here listening to you in my living room. (Half of my mistakes) thank you for being tangible. You make the great times amazing and the hard times not so hard. You guys will always be rich, even with a dollar in your pocket. (That is a quote from the times when all we could carry was cash. Before LOL and debit cards). Cheers, you guys are as real as a shot of warm crusty bourbon from the Windjammer after jamming with the the Georgia Satellites singer. Thank you Blue Dogs!"
Thank YOU. We are blessed with amazing fans. Onward...
