Mae, who is the Activity Director there, was the first to volunteer for Whitt's post-show washtub bass demonstration. Too bad a still photo can't do justice to her hip action!
Then, it was on to Rio Valley Estates in Weslaco, where Brock Laing, their Activity Director really gave us the royal treatment. He's a performer himself, and a musician (well, if you count the bodhran as a musical instrument...and who doesn't?!) and he did a great job as emcee, took our photos for us, and made us feel really welcome...an actual stage with a light crew and a curtain that opened as we were introduced, just like show business! We're still a little giddy.
The audience was one of the best singing groups we've ever had!
Brock took this shot of Judy jawharping as Whitt rendered "Side By Side." (Brock, Brock, Brock! Shoulda done "Ghost Chickens"!)
Thanks again, new friend! We had a great time, and we're pretty sure the folks did, too.
