Been away from the 'Cat for a few days, due to: 1) administrative overreaction to the Code Red Worm and 2) we closed on a new house on Monday!
It's a marvelous ranch house with a large fenced-in lot (our dog loves it, although our old girl retriever passed away a couple of weeks before we got here :-( ), and plenty of spare crash-space and music-making space, so I decided to drop a quick note in a non-BS thread (musical content ahead), and issue the invitation to anyone undertaking a Bill/Allan style Mudcat trek to add us to your itinerary if you'll be travelling near South Dakota! Drop us a PM a bit ahead of time, and we can plan to invite other acoustic-and-folk-playing friends over for a dandy hootenanny. We can probably sleep as many as five guests if need be.
To be honest, the ability to so easily have real, live music in our home is one of the things we're happiest about. So join us some time, if you're in the area!

p.s. "The O'Spawn Estates," by the by, was the joking name we gave to our old, cramped rental home among another online community I've mentioned where I was known as Shadowspawn (or, at times, Shad O'Spawn). The name fits this joint better....
