The big thing on yesterday’s schedule was the annual Christmas Show at the Alvin Opry. But it was made better by meeting our friend Maria at Monterey’s Little Mexico for dinner before heading over to the Opry.
As I said before, we’ve been going to the Alvin Opry since 1996, and the Christmas Show is always a must.
But the star of the show last night was Alvin Opry newcomer, 11 year old Tori Vourganas. Tori plays the fiddle and the banjo, and sings to boot. And she’s cute as a button, too.
You can check out a couple of her videos below. Unfortunately the audio isn’t great so it’s hard to tell how good she is.
And along with Tori, perennial favorite Tony Booth made one of his too-infrequent appearances to the delight of everyone.
Then coming home about 11pm, we stopped off at Wal-Mart to pick up a few things, and also avoid the Saturday Christmas crowds.
On another note, here’s a picture of our son Chris and Dick Mott comparing their cigar box guitars out in La Brisa’s parking lot.
Today was a pretty much nothing day. In fact we never even left the rig.
There’s another front coming through bringing more cold weather so after a high of 78° at about 1:30pm, the temp dropped 15° in 3 hours.
And the low tomorrow night will be in the mid-30’s, so it looks like winter is back again.
With all the Duck Dynasty controversy, I thought I’d throw something else in the mix.
Most people don’t know that pre-Duck Dynasty, Phil Robertson was a star quarterback at Louisiana Tech University, and heavily recruited by the pros. But he gave it all up because he’d rather hunt than play football.
The other part of this was that Terry Bradshaw was his backup quarterback, but almost never got to play because Phil was so good. In fact in another interview, Terry said Phil had the best arm he’d ever seen. And remember this was coming from TERRY BRADSHAW.
You can hear Terry tell what happened on this video.
If you’ve ever wanted to check out Adobe’s Photoshop but didn’t want to shell out the big bucks, you can now download a legacy version for free.
With CS6 the current version, Photoshop CS2 was released in 2005, and replaced by CS3 in 2007. And now you can have a copy of CS2 for your very own.
The reason for the freebie is that Adobe no longer wants to maintain the authentication servers for a 9 year old version, and so decided to release it into the wild.
Just click the above link, select Windows or Mac on the right side, and set back and wait, because it’s a 340 MB download. The program works fine up to Windows 7, but will not work on Win 8.
Below you will find the serial number needed to register the program.
Windows Serial number: 1045-1412-5685-1654-6343-1431
Mac OS X Serial number: 1045-0410-5403-3188-5429-0639
Thought for the Day:
