Where I stood, er danced, all night

radio feetYesterday morning, Mark and I got up bright and early and sold our wares at the Electronics Expo in Farmington.  We were busy, this is the only photo I took all day.

Photos of the man were also posted so we could all remember.

Andy Peabody does a great job on Soulmobile, with the Sugar Babies of Soul on back-up, and on steering wheels.  A great night, and this morning Mark has no voice.  Not a surprise!
