Boogiewoody,
I've been playing this volume of Joan Selects since the last time you posted it at Christmas! Glad to see that it's available for folks who might have missed it the first time around.

Thanks, Joan! (Marie waves.)

Hope you both had a wonderful holiday and wish you all the best for the New Year.
