Celina Rally 2

First off, Brandi sent over this video of Landon playing the drum set his cousin Piper gave him for his birthday a week or so ago.

The mystery is, where did he learn to sit down and play the drums like that. Brandi says no one showed him how. He just sits down, puts his foot on the bass drum pedal and wails away.

The next Buddy Rich! (I think that dates me.)


We started this morning’s rally agenda with coffee and doughnuts about 8:30, and then Jan and I attended Ron and Brenda Spiedel’s seminar on remodeling your RV. Jan and I got a lot of good ideas for possible upgrades to our rig.

Then at 10:30 I gave my first seminar on Computer Q & A. At the other computer-related seminars I’ve given in the past, I’ve noticed that everyone had a lot of general computer questions, so I decided to have a seminar of nothing but questions from the audience, and hopefully answers from me.

As it turned out we had a little over 20 people and it seemed to go well.

After lunch I ran some errands and then Jan and I napped until a little before 4pm when we headed down for a couple of more seminars. Just as we were getting in the car, Nick called and asked what I was doing. I told him I was going to check out the ‘Electrical Troubleshooting with a Multimeter’ seminar.

He said “Good. Bring a multimeter with you. The instructor didn’t show up so you’re teaching the class.”


So I grabbed a couple of meters and a few other things and off I went. As it turned out, it went pretty well and everyone seemed to enjoy it.

Next time a little more warning, Nick.

A little after 5 Nick and Terry, and Jan and I headed into Celina to have supper at C-Town Wings, a really good restaurant in the downtown area. Tonight they had All You Can Eat Boneless Wings and Fries. Our kind of place. Well, Nick and me, anyway.

Then at 7pm things got rolling again with more door prizes, and wrapped up with a performance by “One More Time”, a husband and wife duo that has performed at Nick’s rallies several times and always do a great job.

They’re amazingly versatile, and both have great voices. We heard everything from Elvis, Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra,

to Sonny and Cher.

Sonny and Cher

We certainly look forward to hearing them again sometime.

Tomorrow I’m giving another seminar on Things Every RV’er Needs. Hopefully it goes as well as today’s did.

  1. Thanks for coming to our rescue with the multimeter seminar, Greg. What would I do without you?

  2. Wow…no wonder NICK really wants you at his rallys!! It does help to have someone who can fill in when someone does not make it!!

  3. Being Nick’s go-to-guy comes with a price.

  4. Would you please send my info on how to contract Ron and Brenda? We have been Gate Guarding for about 20 months and it has taken a toll on the RV. Any info would be appreciated.

  5. He REALLY owes you BIG TIME for that impromptu seminar! Gulp is right! I knew you could wing it tho.

  6. Great pics of our show! Thanks for including them. We had a great time — wish we could’ve spent more time chatting with everyone, but the seminars were great!
    PS — would you please email me at Melissa@omtmusic.com? I have a question for you… Thanks!
