Davenport - my upstate New York grandparents always called the sofa by that name.

Lovely to see you all - and please may I have 24 more?

Thank you, Nic.

I had many drinking dreams in early sobriety - not every night, but frequently. They are very rare now.

In the meantime, I still have that video my band filmed that I can send along if you want to see it too SL
