We just finished the first show. It's a packed crowd here in Van Wert Ohio.
The general manager said it was a record for the earliest chairs were set up. People were here at 6am today. They're not suppose to set them up until 12 noon; but they allowed it since people got up to early. He said we set a record for the earliest chairs ever. :-) Reckon Guiness will recognize that??? LOL Gary Kennedy won the prize tonight for the farthest traveled to the show; so we performed his request for "Heartbreaker's Alibi". Sorry we didn't get Cry of the Whippoorrwwilll in tonight. We're planning to starting doing that song more, when I can remember the words again. Thanks to everyone who attended tonight's show. We had a blast!!!

Good morning from the public library in
. I'll be giving guided tours of my hometown all day today. There are still openings left on the tour, so feel free to stop by and join us. In fact, we've got nothing but openings. We're going to get the old gang together and have a wild small town Saturday night. BUCYRUS, OHIO Wonderful show in Van Wert last night. The audience was completely dazzled, which is exactly how it should be. Special thanks to the incomparable for singing my request "Heartbreaker's Alibi"! RHONDA VINCENT I arrived at 6:00 PM last night and the park was already full of chairs. However, the good folks of Van Wert were nice enough to leave room for one chair on the second row. I don't feel like I really deserved the prize for traveling the farthest, though. Since I was born in Bucyrus, I really only traveled 90 miles to get to this show. It just involved a few detours and took 55 & 1/2 years (don't forget the big half birthday on July 28th). In an unrelated story, this morning I walked down Mary St. and I couldn't believe that the front porch swing is still there at the Williamson house. Many years ago I used to sit on that swing with Connie while her brother ate chocolate pie and her mother cut up chicken to fry and......well, my computer time is almost up, but I think you know where this is going. It was true love. Happy Ragin' everyone!
