  • Not surprised to hear Tom tears it up wherever he goes–he’s got the magic. I’ve got to get down to AR myself next year…

    • You want to book soon _ spots are seriously filling up.

  • Great re-share! Last time I was on the PM (Pere Marquette) I parked behind The Fish Whisper at Green Cottage. This was the first I had heard of him – now I know a fair amount more. Thanks.
