Davey Norket is back home in Amsterdam, Holland.

(L to R) Matthew Child, plus his reflection in the window. Mr. Paul "Strummer" Blackwell, and MY reflection in the window. (Although I wasn't there.)

"Mini-Fool's Reunion," according to Paul Blackwell: I met up with Davey Norket and Cedric Curtis in Montara, near Half Moon Bay. I picked up Matthew in Berkeley on the way. Great time had by all. We also did a little jam session. Davey as wizard of funk, and Cedric as soulful as always. I was Mr. Strummer.
