one ring rudd

one ring rudd aka katie is the event guru galore...she has single handily intercepted several close calls when I nearly shot and maimed a retarded stringed trio in the desert, the time I close to killed our favorite lighting team, and the time I couldn't understand why a stupid reserved sign could break apart a family. (if that's all it takes, my theory is, break apart already!)
thank you katie for keeping me outta prison
