about The Songs
This song was written in 1991 to acknowledge the lessons I learned while working with my father and his identical twin brother, about life and business. In this song I acknowledge their lessons about satisfying customers and how best to treat people. 1399 was the address of their trailer and trailer parts business. Many of our customers came in to purchase all the components to build or retrofit their truck campers or travel trailers.
On my morning walk one day this chorus came to me, both the words and the music. I had recently learned I was to be a Grandfather for the first time. I completed the song early in the new year. River was born in February of 2020 just as we were learning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
