Thanks for the shoutout, Robert.

Roots and blooms.  Roots and blooms.  Can't have one without the other.
Can't survive without both.

Speaking of blooms, time is fast running out to contribute to my Indiegogo
project to fund my 21st century rock harmonica record "The Lucky One."
 Check out the clips on the updates section of the Indiegogo page.

Blooms, man.


Regards, Richard Hunter
