The most rewarding banjo gig I think we ever played was in a gas station parking lot to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the A&M Shell Station owned by Arnold Mendez, a Naturalized Citizen who is living the American Dream. He came here from Cuba in 1962, has worked at this Shell Station for over 50 years and is loved by his customers for his honesty, integrity and loyalty. The customers got together to plan this celebration and to honor this hard working American. They presented him with an American Flag that was flown over our nations Capitol. Very good feeling to be a part of a good story about an immigrant!
Wesley and Greg are becoming fun little boys with distinctly different personalities and interests. Wes is all about imagination and creativity. Greg loves animals, books and cars! They visited us here in Portal after Thanksgiving and we played on our tire swing and took the boys to the Chiricahua Desert Museum while they were here.
It's now mid December and Christmas is just a week away! Don't know where the time is going? I remember my Mother saying that.....guess we're getting old. :)
We played an outdoor gig last weekend in Tucson and it was cold, drizzly and miserable. We were happy when it started raining hard and we packed up and went to Beyond Bread for hot chocolate and soup. YUMMM! That afternoon we also played a Christmas Party at the Mobile Home park where Elaine Calloway, our Red Hot Mama lives. Thankfully it was indoors and we got fed after Santa arrived.
