We had the pleasure of performing for an awesome crowd at the Yoder Heritage Day Festival in Yoder, KS on Saturday August 23rd. There was an amazing amount of people attending the event despite the 100 degree temperatures and a wonderful number of them stayed to listen to us! It is possible many were waiting around for the fireworks display that followed our performance but it appeared that those who stayed to listened did enjoy our show. Once the sun decided to set the evening was quite pleasant and we enjoyed performing. Many people requested songs and we did our best to fulfill those requests, even if some of us didn't really know the tune! Thanks to the Festival for having us and to all who stayed to listen.
I have been lax in my blog updates so here it goes. Our Western dinner shows at Old Cowtown Have gone well and are always a great time for us and our guests. We are down to one more show for the summer on August 22nd so please make plans to be with us. On another subject we SO looking forward to next February when we embark on our SIXTH Cowboy Cruise with Village Tours. Many of you have already made reservations to cruise with us and we invite many more of you to join us! If you have never cruised as a vacation this trip is the way to try it out!
On a personal note I have been blessed to have found full-time employment again therefore my blog posts may still be farther apart but I will make an effort to keep up and to pass along news and my perspective. Thanks for reading.
