Two 80th Birthdays

Both Malcolm Townsend and Willie Mae Eldridge celebrated their 80th birthday this weekend. That’s 160 years between the two of them. (psst… John S had a birthday this weekend also, but he’s a couple decades younger).

Texas Waltz

Those of you who were at the jam last Thurs know that from 6-6:30 Louise & Jerry taught us a new song, Texas Waltz. It’s an easy tune to learn. Even if you were not here you can also learn the tune.
