Last year I got to vacation in Montego Bay, Jamaica. It was a wonderfully fun and relaxing experience, and I could feel a reggae tune brewing. One day, while looking through the books and magazines in the gift shop, I found a book of Jamaican phrases. I picked it up, opened it to a random page, and my eyes went straight to the phrase “All fruits ripe” which means “Everything is just great. All is good.” I immediately knew I had discovered the title of my yet to be written song. The phrase summed up exactly how I felt, and I spent the next few nights out on the balcony drinking Red Stripe and writing this song.
Interesting side note – the cover of my CD “Rescue Me” is a picture I took while in Jamaica.
Awesome! My new theme song for “Twisted Lemonades” on the deck at Michael’s on the Lake…care to join us?
The new website looks fabulous and thank you for allowing me to be your friend and NW Fan Club President!

Terry listens to your Cd at work all the time and so I had to buy one.
I love Reggae and Blues and listened to your new song, very nice I hope you do a CD of Reggae.
Great song! I am Terry’s friend from Missouri, we went to high school together. I really like your songs. Keep up the good work and God bless you.
Don – great idea. Every so often another reggae tune comes out. At some point, maybe I’ll put them all together on one CD.
Lori – thanks, and thanks for signing up for the email list!

We’ll have to talk again soon…lots of ideas have been forming! Hope you sent my note to work cause I believe I need to be up in 2 1/2 hours! Oh well the pain I suffer later today is well worth the fun…All Fruits Ripe & Life Is Good! I will reciprocate the next time you are in town I will have the fun and you the hangover! 😉
