Enjoyed the events in September and early October. There were
a number of them, including the special flea market morning in Emporia, the tour group from California at Pioneer Bluffs,
(even sang "out California Way" for them - an old song I sorta learned for the occasion). The Old Iron
Days at Fredonia was an excellent event, and the Parsons Farm Heritage Day for school kids was a well put together event,
but a cold north wind and a bit of rain, put a damper on it, ending it early. The Chisholm Trail festival in Abilene
was another good day with many activities celebrating the history of the old cattle town.
forward now to the next meeting of the Western Music Assn of Kansas - which will be Oct. 19 at the Hoy's Flying W ranch.

Tony and I had a presentation last night (Feb 22) in Oberlin, KS at "The Gateway" - a very nice
theatre (and more) complex. In fact, Oberlin seems much bigger than a 1900 population town. Our wives are with
us so we're making it more of a trip, rather than just buzzing out and back. Stayed last night in the Landmark Inn
- which is a converted 1886 bank building. Lots of historical features and antiques here. A very nice place
as well as an experience. Of course, met some very nice folks last night as well. Getting ready for breakfast
here at the Landmark at the "Teller Room Restaurant" If you ever need to stay over at Oberlin, I'd recommend
the Landmark. Of historical note, Oberlin is the site of the last Indian raid in Kansas, 1878 - and they have a nice
museum with that as the central theme. The Indians were northern Cheyenne and were seeking to go back home from Oklahoma.
An old movie "Cheyenne Autumn" was based on their journey.
presentation is in Madison, March 14.
