Springtime! Time for love, robins, flowers, baseball and that new hat. Be it fedora, beret, newsboy, pork pie or whatever. But no ball caps worn backwards. What credible bluesman or lady would allow themselves be seen in the finest of jooks without a cool topper? Time to put away them drab ‘ole fur felts...

Dancing to the Beat of a Different Drum

Queen Biscuit and I drove down along the Ohio River Saturday, March 7th led by the constantly changing hues of a vanishing sunset.
