I had intended to attend both Saturday Night dances (I had hoped to try out my waltzing and swing), but in typical Elko fashion, the weather and roads changed. I decided to stay home. So like me, this blog is lacking information about those dances.
To fill that gap, please leave a comment about the dances (Wylie and the Wild West dance and then Corb Lund and The Hurtin’ Albertans dance ) if you attended them. Your participation in the blog will fill those gaps and your comments will be appreciated. And then I can remember that night vicariously through your comments. :–)
I hope that all of you who did go to the dances had a great time. I have heard those bands play dances before and I know that they most likely kept you on your feet as much as you would let them. For me, I guess I need to keep practicing my waltz and swing until next year.
Pretty quiet around here. I easily found a parking spot outside of the Western Folklife Center (WFC). I’m sure I saw David Wilkie and Denise Withnell (Cowboy Celtic) in the WFC gift shop after noon getting some things. Bimbo Cheney stopped by and said hello. I got to say one last hello and goodbye to Tom and Carol Gamm.
It is quiet again today. Found parking easy enough. The WFC staff is having a debriefing session. I’ll rack my brain to see if I can think of anything for them. The office is clean and things are back to where they usually are after the Gathering.
I hope all of you made it home safely to your regular post-Gathering routine. Did I mention that it is pretty quiet around here?
Is it January 2011 yet?
