Tis the Season

Dear Friends,

It's hard not to have been jolly this last little while. It's been beautiful here in the Shenandoah Valley with sunny days and the temperatures in the 60s. We looked out today and saw four bluebirds in a redbud tree in the front yard. And while looking at the bluebirds, two blue herons flew from a creek across the road. Linda has been in the garden planting garlic. Bluebirds in December! Gardening in December! Who'd have thunk it?

We're getting ready for our holiday shows coming up the middle of this month and are enjoying getting back to those songs. We'll be using some of the songs from our CD "The First Christmas Gift" and, as usual, are adding some new songs in as well. With that in mind, if any of you would like to give the gift of music, Robin and Linda would love to help you out. You can go to our website, www.robinandlinda.com for any of your shopping needs.

We mentioned a couple of months ago how we were riding on the shoulders of our dog towards incredible fame and fortune with a song we wrote about her, "Tessie Mae. The good folks at Red House Records, somehow or another, got a copy of it to Bark Magazine who did an interview and wrote a small piece about the three of us in their "Dogpatch"section. Tess seems to be totally unaffected by her new star status but Robin and Linda are expecting big things out of her. Here's the link for those of you interested:

Bumper Sticker of the Month: When I want your opinion I'll give it to you.

The next time you hear from us the year will have turned; and we'll all be wondering how 2012 could have gone so fast and wondering if 2013 will pass as quickly. A couple of months before Robin's dad died at the age of 89, we called him and, first off, asked how he was doing. He answered by saying: "Oh my life is like a roll of toilet paper." And then silence. Knowing Robin's dad and realizing that a joke was coming, we bit and asked him what he meant by that. "Oh," he said, "the closer I get to the end, the faster it goes." We're starting to realize what he was talking about. We're thinking that 2012 was good for us we're hoping it was for you as well. And we're wishing for you all a peaceful holiday season and a wonderful 2013.

Your pals, Robin and Linda
