Jean, KRAMER and his wife Valerie at Mecca Normal’s Radio Active record store show in Fort Lauderdale. It was a good show. A fitting conclusion to our time in Florida.

Rat and David outside Shorty’s BBQ.

At Shorty’s BBQ where David Lester got the half rack of baby back ribs with chicken and sampled my pulled pork, yet he’s still ominously eyeballing Rat Bastard’s full rack. See Bastard’s left hand? He’s on to Lester’s baby back grab and run scheme.
