I'm hoping to make it there for some photos in a couple of weeks! It would be a real tragedy to loose this building!

let me know about your plans to go to KC m-kay?
I'm gonna keep on the run... I'm gonna have me some fun if it costs me my very last dime.
If I wind up broke up, well, I'll always remember that I had a swingin' time
