    Hi Shayna,

    I was cleaning up some old dvds/cds and found your album blonde. You gave it to me after we did the whiskey tour in Edinburgh at least 10 years ago with your bearded partner! You may remember the kiwi guy you guys got rather drunk with running through grave yards and under the city with, well that was me! Hope you are well and enjoying parenthood (I have a 4.5 year old). Enjoy and hope you are well.
