We are currently in a rental van driving down I-79 out of Pittsburgh, PA on our way to Summersville, WV. Ezra is driving, I’m writing. I just realized that I don’t even know what color this van is. That’s how long we’ve had it. It’s dark outside and there are lots of deer by the side of the road. I am going to write this newsletter with Ezra as he watches out for the deer.
Our new CD, Merry Fishes to All, is causing quite a stir. We just found out yesterday that it will be reviewed in Parade magazine on Sunday,November 28th. Wow! This is “The” Parade magazine that is the Sunday insert in newspapers across the country. That’s been around since we were kids! Merry Fishes has also been reviewed in Family Fun magazine and they’re calling it “The Year’s Best Christmas CD.” Go to http://m1e.net/c?9991607-Pre.kdaumfHZ.%40734825-zJvxBsN5yrYUI to read it for yourself and sign up for the chance to win one. On a more local level, Emily Kaitz reviewed it for All About Town, Fayetteville’s Arts & Entertainment publication and praised Ezra’s deft use of Major 7th chords (Gosh, I hope he’s not going deft). Our faces graced the cover of Nightflying, the Arkansas statewide Arts & Entertainment newspaper. Thanks, Peter. But don’t just take the word of the experts! You should get the CD and review it for yourself. Makes a great stocking stuffer. Have your friends review it too.
We’re now 11 miles from West Virginia. “Almost Heaven…” This week, we’ll be in WV, NJ and Albany, NY. Then it’s home for Thanksgiving. Once again, the Idlets have invited 500 of their closest friends over for the week of Thanksgiving (read: partying). Ezra will be leading a caravan of Thanksgivers to Tulsa on Wednesday to watch his daughter, Dana, play basketball with the Lady Golden Hurricanes. GO #13!
We are truly thankful for our many blessings, the love and support of our friends and family, and your continued interest in what we are doing.
Here’s West Virginia. Looks a lot like West Pennsylvania so far, but the speed limit just went up to 70. I still don’t know what color the van is. Neither does Ezra, but for different reasons.
Keith and Ezra
