Maureen said...

what a totally totally incredible gift, you two -- you really DO make a great team. I can only hope and wish that someone might do something like this for me if I ever reach my 75th birthday. Your friend must feel so loved and appreciated, Kim. Sigh. Now I want to listen to this exact mix in this order. But how will I ever find all those songs? Cool idea! And great idea for the cover art. You're a talented art director/designer/illustrator/photog. :-D
