The month of June was a quick one for us. We spent a few weeks getting ready for the concert for YouthServe
in Cleveland, since we hadn't performed in a while. We had a great time hosting and opening for our new friend Tara Leigh Cobble
from Nashville, who we now like even more than the first time we saw her peform! (Tara, please forgive us for only remembering the gun song!).
We then spent a relaxing week on vacation with our family at a camp on Lake Erie near Ashtabula, Ohio (and were we'll actually be performing in September - check out www.lutherpoolooza.net
And now we're planning for the big trip out to California for Kevin's brother's wedding, and while we're out there, for our visit to Yosemite National Park, were we hope to not get eaten by bears, and to learn the merits of disposable underwear. Peace.

Things have settled down a bit for us musically so far this year. Gigs haven't been knocking on our door, and so we've been occupying our free time with other, more domestic things - home improvement jobs, saving up the "baby money", etc. Regular life is upon us. I started to run out of shelf space for books, so I had to quit reading for a while, so I could build some more bookshelves, so I could read more books. Which reminds me of a quote from this article
"Some people want to live the glamorous, high-fashion life of Paris Hilton. I've always wanted to live like C. S. Lewis, whose friends said that the masses of books lining his house were the only thing keeping the walls from falling in."
Yeah, that's me, too. It is "wedding season", though, so we're still getting some chances to sing for our friends. And Des continues to pour out some great songwriting in the evening hours. Our current plan is to get into the studio sometime this summer, to get some of them down on tape, before they lose their "freshness". Along with some other arrangements of hymns that we've been playing for a while. When they'll actually make it into CD form is still up in the air.
That's about it from us for now. As always, we're available for gigs if you've got friends you want to introduce our music too. Peace.

Here's a map of all the states that Des & I (individually) have played concerts in. Not too bad - still a few more to go, though!

Today's special thanks go out to Stu Smith for his fine review
of Six Years and a Few Guitars
on CD Baby. I don't know how long it's been there - just checked today - but stop on over and see the kind things he has to say.
Kevin and Des - now with even faster updates! This is a new addition to our website, a journal of sorts, that will allow us to post news and current thoughts more quickly. We hope to keep you posted as our new CD project gets going, as well as news from concerts, etc. Hope all of you get a great start to the New Year.
