     South Padre Island, Texas…..”I can’t believe what the spring breakers have written on their cars,” Sheila Everhart the bass player for the dynamic Smithsonian duo said.  “It’s all over their cars…”We’re going to get drunk and puke.”  What kind of fun is that?”
     “They have also been warned not to go to Mexico,” Bob added, “because of the drug wars going on there.  The Border Patrol and local law enforcement have been very busy these past few days.  We are going back to Mexico because Sheila is having some work done on her teeth.  It’s amazing, the dental work there is incredibly good.  She went to a dentist in Iowa before we came to Texas, and the fee for a crown and a root canal was over $2,000.  In Mexico the same work is like $400, so being without any kind of dental insurance, that’s where we went.  Sheila’s very happy with the work they’ve done so far, and we have one more appointment before we head back to Iowa.”
     “We’re already gearing up for several ‘new’ approaches to our old-time music concerts this year,” Sheila added.  “We are going to celebrate the 100th birth-year of Woody Guthrie, Bill Monroe, Minnie Pearl, and Roy Rogers, with some old-time music shows together with old-time artifacts, to help museums raise money for their various fund-raising projects.  We have about six museums that will host our program, and they all look really interesting.  Some are not totally confirmed yet, but it appears we’ll be at the Perry Arts Center for their museum; the Blairsburg Opera House for their museum; the Fort Dodge High School Little Theater for the Webster County Museum; the Riverside History Center; the Pioneer Music Museum; and the Fremont County Historical Society. The shows will all be a little different depending on what the museums come up with displays on each of the celebrants.  What is sure, it’s an easy way to create a fund-raiser for museums, and we’ll have lots of fun with old-time music and old-time artifacts.”
     “We’re also getting ready for the first shows of the season at the Oak Tree Opry,” Bob added.  “We sure have a lot of great entertainers being with us April 20-21-22.  This is our own ‘fund-raiser’ for the Pioneer Music Museum, but we will also do another one during “Iowa Museum Week” when Red Johnson is with us.  This great Capitol Recording artist will have a special display in the Pioneer Music Museum during his appearance June 15th.”
     “Budget lunch?” Bobbie Lhea squaked.  “We finally went to Chili’s.  This is an interesting place to eat, and it’s not all Mexican food.  Dad took one look at the menu and said, “OK everybody, all we’re ordering is appetizers.”  “What?” I said.  “But when I looked at the appetizers, I could see that they really had some neat food at a low price.  So that’s what we did, stayed inside our budget, and lo and behold had more food than we could handle, just by eating appetizers.  No soft drinks though, but ice water with a lemon peel in it was just great.”
