Beautiful Sunset & Crazy Carol

I didn't take this picture. Debbie, the manager here at the Thousand Trails campground did over from a fishing pier by the Sky Way bridge. Richard & her went fishing there. Dolphins were even taking their bait. Debbie didn't know what to do when she had one hooked, but it just took out a lot of her line & then let go. Richard wasn't so lucky. It snapped a pole of his into. Debbie also caught a small shark.
Last night I went to Karaoke at Sarasota, Fl. where my friend of 50 years was the KJ, (Karaoke Jockey). She had invited me earlier in the week, but what with having a cold, I didn't pursue it. So around 6 PM last night I decided I wanted to go, but I wasn't sure where she was playing, but my 1st call located her, except when I asked if Carol Nelson was doing Karaoke there last night, the bartender said, "No, Crazy Carol was." So I had to persuade her that both were the same person. 1st picture is of last night. We become family friends from around age 13 when her dad had a band & played at the Eagle's Lodge. Carol played guitar & saxophone. Once when the band was on break, she danced with me while playing her guitar up over my head & behind my back. Guess I should have known then she would be going on to become a professional entertainer, much more that her dad's success.

You can see she only has 1 drink per night, but as you can see, IT IS A BIG ONE. A BIG TOAST. Then it has a multiple use also. To get her reed wet on her saxophone. She has many acts. The one with her dipping her reed is the Richard Simmons act.

This act she plays a nun, but her habit is actually her dance skirt from when she was 4 years old. She has so many acts & all are funny. They are belly busters for the audience. I helped Carol for a few weeks about 5 years ago & found out that some people have been to her show a dozen times or more. I am gonna try to send a video in the next blog. Unfortunate, I was enjoying it so much, I wasn't thinking & I turned the camera up vertical, so you'll have to turn your head sideways to see it.
Well, today is moving day. Got to go to the salvage yard for a week. Weather is beautiful here. Hope you are enjoying your weekend. I called northern Indiana & it got down to 44 there this morning, a little too cold for my blood. Ron
