Music Time! “Home” Edition. 7/20/16

20160716_141810

While traveling is always fun, it’s always great to finally get home. It was a long trip going after the monsoon with mostly a bust. A really cool storm in the distant south of Show Low, AZ and some rain and rainbows in Albuquerque. But the scenery of the desert and mountains definitely compensated for the general lack of storms. Of course AZ lit up after we left. LOL

So I’m home and some home music is good today…

I get to see these guys on 7/29 in Houston!
