I have added some photos from the reunion here.
The Lail family had a birthday party/reunion Saturday at Mt. Bethel United Methodist Church in the Bethlehem community near Hickory, NC.
It was uncle Don Lail’s birthday (11/25/1925) birthday and the whole Virginia clan (which I hadn’t seen in many, many years … most of my cousins’ children I had never met).
Here are some photos from Mark’s 15th birthday.
Listening to “Saturday Night House Party,” my favorite blues radio show, on WNCW. If you’ve never heard it, give it a listen some Saturday night. Good cross section of new stuff and classics, ranging across every blues style. From 7 to 10 p.m. followed by an hour long “House Party Live.”
They just cranked into a “drinking” set that started with Floyd Dixon doing “Hey Bartender,” then rolled into John Lee Hooker’s “One bourbon, one scotch, one beer” then Paul Mark and the VanDorens’ “Drinkin on the job,” followed by Albert Collins doing “I ain’t drunk.”
