Hope your feeling stronger today.
I'd love to hear your mother singing "What Sin?":), its my fave. of Jimmy's King 45's.
So your Mom & Sister are big Jimmy fans, thats super!! I guess you've heard alot of Jimmy's records over the years. Did they read the book and see the documentries? Have they seen him perform LIVE in N.Y.? We'll be at "The Iridium" on Broadway August 31 - Sept. 5th.
Take good care of yourself DN.

So glad your doing so much better! That is the most important thing Dyva.

Re: Iridium...It would be great to meet you and take photos of your Mom with Jimmy :) As far as The Iridium goes check out their web-site, I do know that they are already posting the dates with a photo and bio of Jimmy for Aug. 31 -Sept.5. They have a nice site. We'll talk more by email when we get closer to the date too (smile).
