Hey Dave, great job at the clinic tonight. Was great seeing you here in Muscle Shoals! Hope you plan a return trip soon. Keep in touch and maybe sometime we can get together and I can take you on a tour of some of the historical places here in the Shoals. (if you haven't already seen them). Lots of great musicians and history here....Thanks again...Jackie Blevins
