Visit to Art Stamper
Art Stamper shots taken by Joan and me at our last visit to him and Kay, at the homeplace in Shepherdsville, KY, June 2004. Art took us for rides all over his large farm, on his small All Terrain Vehicle, “the only thing I ever owned that I did not need.” Much music played, as usual.
Art loved to jam, and I loved to jam with him
