Working On Music….

I’ll be working hard to get some new music up within the next couple of days. Still trying to figure out how to use my new computer, so please be patient.

In between now and then, just catch up on all the old stuff and kind of play around. Or visit some of the other fantastic Bette sites.

Anyway, I must get to work….

Love, Mister D
