The Red River Playboys and they were fabulous! They've been around the music scene here for years and years, but I'd never heard them. I'll post a short clip of them at the bottom of this. They played Cajun/Zydeco music, Swamp Pop, and blues complete with accordians, fiddles and a washboard. Awesome! At the end of the night the wife of one of the guys gave me one of their CDs and I felt a lot better about not winning a door prize earlier! Steve and I listened to some of it on the way home and it's great! They're on sale here, at their website.
By the end of the evening even I was on my feet doing the Cha Cha Slide or something; the DJ was trying to teach us a more complicated line dance but gave up on us and did the Cha Cha Slide which any moron can do! I nearly died of heat stroke but it was lots of fun. Before the night was over I'd even scored a cookbook from one of the sponsors, Lula Hill of Coldwell Banker Realtors. I was tickled to death!
We went up on the Hangar 2 deck so I could cool off and finish my last Sam Adams before we cut out for the night only to find a beer pong game in progress. No, I did not play.
All in all it was a fun night and we hope they do it again next year, but maybe a little earlier in the season before it hits 98 degrees outside!
Enough about that - on to the links; I'll spread some more pictures through the rest of the post:
Stacy McCain has been spending too much time on YouTube but he has found some cool stuff! When America Was a Great Country...; love it!
Pirate's Cove is totally over The Whiner in Chief. Over it. And on a related note, Doug Ross has a suggestion for modification of the inaugural oath. And Pundette notes that Obama is not exactly fair.

Fishersville Mike gives me reason to hope for better blog stats, but you know, I don't really want September to come alllllllllllll that fast. I'm on vacation, ya know.

Little Miss Attila is not a fan of Obama's drilling moratorium.
WyBlog reports on the UN resolution against Israel and Obama's support of it. Disgusting. Yukio at Critical Narrative has some thoughts as well.

That's it for now. I have Saturday things to do. Be cool and I'll catch you later! But first, listen to a little of The Red River Playboys:
