You're Invited!


   You can RSVP on the Facebook Event page . . . I'll be streaming Monday 7/16/18 at 8pm EST from my Facebook Business Page.   Watch my Video about the event!

So get the kids (and husband) to bed early, pour yourself an adult beverage and be an eye witness to what may just be vintage history in the making. . . at the least I'll make you laugh!
