Thanks to Jan Clements for all of the beautiful harmonies in addition to her contributions on keyboard and accordion and Mike Pellera, for the keyboards, organ, and that wonderful cello! Thanks to Larry Ankrum for the flute on “Reaching Out” and Nancy Buchan for the violin – and for going there with me on “Looking Out The Window” (smiles)

Thank you Lexanne for the coffee and for allowing us all into your home and Lin Boudreaux for your calm energy and your good ears. Also the unknown police officer who escorted me back to the house in Gonzales without whom this project may never have happened at all!
