Congrats Rick!
No one has mentioned it but you got your album covers wrong... This is "Bare Trees" not "Rumours" from Fleetwood Mac...but I guess you would have to be a fan of the band to know this. Did you do that on purpose or just a coincidence?

I am way behind on congrats, Rick, but that was the first thing I thought of when I saw this..loved Fleetwood back in the day and this image immediatley took me back! Love it! #5628679
