By September we were down to Elkhart, Indiana where we again performed for the Gypsy Journal at their eastern gathering....for those of you who are not familiar with Nick and Miss Terry and their rallies, we heartily encourage you to check them out. www.gypsyjournalrv.com. You'll have a great time and learn a lot!
We'll spare you the "graphic images."
made our way to the Escapee's 50th Escapade held in Goshen, where we
had the honor of playing right after opening ceremonies. Although there
were some sound issues, we had audience that thoroughly enjoyed what we
did. 800 coaches and about 2,000 folks. Learn more about this wonderful RV
club and our extended RV family at www.escapees.com.
last big gig up north was our first "black tie" event, the Knights of Columbus Provincial Dinner in Royal Oak, Michigan, a beautiful affair with all
the pomp and circumstance the Knights are known for and a fantabulous
dinner which we followed.
Then it was back down across
Indiana to Kansas City, Missouri, and then back to Lubbock, and anther great audience at
the West Texas Bluegrass and Traditional Music Assn. held at the
Hillside Country Club. Again, though we're not bluegrass, they're always very kind to us there.
Again, one of the best perks, in our opinion, of this wierd lifestyle is the dining to which we are often treated. At the Hillside CC it's a wonderful make-your-own combo plate at the all-you-can-eat seafood and pasta bar! Yikes! (It's a tough life out here on the road.)
