Every now and then, when circumstances demand it, we pull out the song “Excuses”. This was one of those evenings. For those of you that are not familiar with the song, I will lay it out for you.
We sing the chorus, then I go into the verse with a speaking part. We then get to a part where we all say “why the whole family had to stay home…”. After that, PT comes in solo with “just to blow that poor kids nose”.
For some reason this evening, PT was bored and decide to record me doing the song [With a mic in one hand and a camera in the other]. Thinking back, he was probably trying to get me on video botching the song….which I am quite good at.
We got to PT’s part and apparently Dana was standing on PTs mic cord. Well, it was hilarious to us, take a peek yourself.
We are sorry to regret that our concerts for Friday, Mar 6th in Choteau, MT and Sunday Mar 8th in Shelby, MT, have been canceled. We will be re-scheduling promptly.
This log (thesis) begins when Peter, Cooper and Glenda leave our home in White Pine, MT and head to Kalispell, normally a 120 mile journey that takes, oh, 2 1/2 hours. We’re meeting up with the 2 “lower in vocal range” gentlemen that live there and heading to Havre, Montana, for a Sunday morning Church service!! Come on along!!

The past 2 weekends had brought us to Kalispell. The 5th, we were invited to take part in the Flathead Valleyeirs [which I am sure I spelled wrong]. While this event was out of our normal type setting, we sure had a ball. The crowd was great and seemed to enjoy themselves. Thank you to Dan and Steve for making us feel welcome.
Last weekend brought us to the 9th annual Ken Dutter Festival. This event is always packed with an appreciative crowd. I certainly dont want to let the cat out of the bag for our upcoming dates, but if you were there, you know what I am thinking. We had a special performance that evening, which we will pull out of the bag in times to come.
Thank you one and all for you friendship! We are thankful to the Lord for friends that are interested in supporting us in one way or another. It is a GREAT privilege to be able to sing praises to the one who gave His life for ours.
See you soon…….
In Kalispell. We are singing tomorrow at Bible Baptist Church, PT’s church. I think we are doing just a couple songs for them. Sure enough we are pretty much snowed in tonight.
We booked a date tonight for April 5th, here in Kalispell, at the Flathead Valley Barbershop Quartet concert…go figure. 🙂 What I know now is that it is at the Flathead Valley High school. I do believe this is a ticketed event, but then again, what do I know. More to come, I am sure.
Just sitting here getting ready to head to church and thought I would comment on last evening. We had a hoot of a time! The choir was excellent, just as expected. I’m not sure on the number of people, I would guess 400 give or take 200. 🙂
Thank you to the Valley Voices and their director Allyson for allowing us to participate in the event. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would love to do it again.
