  1. WOW!! I have been a fan of MIchael Hurleys for about 20 years but that their film was just a GRAND TREAT! He is not only an American Troubadour he is an earthly delight. Thanks for hitch hiking thyat day. I would love to try some of that fine Kabo???tchka. Thanks again, A SNOCK FAN, Dave Zamboni
