Upon us all a little rain must fall...

"The rain makes you want to pee"
-Brett, 8/17/2012

Although we lost the scenery of Richie's Rocks on account of weather, the garage proved to be a fine backdrop for the Ramble, part deux. As advertised, Dancing Dick carried the band through old favorites and a few impressive debuts.  By the time "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air" dropped, we all forgot about the storms.  Brett was really killing it on Keys, as you can see from this pic:
