Q & As of the Season

Q: Where does the time go?

A:  uhhhh... Not sure. Seems like maybe something happened between now and the last blast of McMusical musings. It’s all a bit hazy. Oh yeah! There was that Hoedown at the Haus with the ever effervescent Billy Flynn (you missed that? see poster at bottom.) Can’t think of anything else.

Oh! Wait! On Wednesday November 23 there is/was Tofflers pre-Thanksgiving Day party-for-patrons (in New Glarus), featuring Ken, Tom, and Derek from the Birddog Blues Band, and special guests Mel Ford on guitar, and Warren Beck on piano.

You missed ALL that?
Well, your shame and sorrow and unease and discomfort is understandable, but let us not dwell on it. Let us think, instead, about the good times ahead!
