New Friend

We met an interesting woman today. Edie Hand lives not far from us but her reach has been much broader. She has worked in film and TV, appearing
In the soap "As The World Turns",
On Hee Haw,
Kathy Lee and Regis, and a bunch of other stuff.
She's a professional speaker who has written twelve books and she Elvis Presley's cousin to boot. But what really impresses me about Edie is her community service. She heads a foundation that is dedicated to serving the needs of those less fortunate.
We only talked for about an hour but both Jilda and I were energized after we left. I mentioned a few entries ago that Don Earley, one of our friends pitched "The Eagle" to a group of folks doing a made for TV movie. The show is based on a book written by Edie Hand.
Today, she listened to the song that we recorded this past week. My buddy Fred Miller, who is a wizard with sound, took what we recorded on my laptop and made is sound like it was recorded in Nashville.
I'm not sure if any of the stuff we are doing will amount to a hill of beans, but I do know one thing - we are having fun. We are making incredible new friends, and working with old friends on things we love doing. When success does come, it will simply be icing on the cake because when you can do the things you love, to me, you are already successful.
