Butch and Rory Hancock at the Starlight Theatre- 11/28/13

Thanksgiving, Terlingua, Texas.  This is why I live here…

I started my day with a Thanksgiving feast at George Goss’ house.  The table was literally groaning from the weight of the food, and there were more dishes in the kitchen.  Before, during and after the feast, music was:  Moses, Brandi, George, Mike, Marshall, Collie, and many others shared songs… and hugs.

Then, I stopped by Trevor Hickle’s place and hung out with Trevor, Bruce Salmon, and Trevor’s lovely family.

Then to the Starlight Theatre where Butch and Rory Hancock were on the big stage.  The place was packed- standing room only- but Sharron saved me a seat up front.

Likely participants in the program are Anna Oakley, Jim Keaveny, Carmen Ganser, Nancy Faubion, Voni Glaves, two very special guests, a dog named Tubo, and a goat named Cisco Kid. Noemi Aviles, manager of Poco Mas, will serve cake and other refreshments. As for the book, an anonymous comment is “I have learned things I didn’t know about people that I have known forever.” And river guide John Parker said, “Every fresh chapter Carl writes is as unique as the people he interviewed.”

The motion picture Wasteland will be in the area shooting for the next several weeks. On November 20th and 21st, the crew will be shooting scenes at the Perry Mansion which will involve a gun fight. Though the shots may sound real they are in fact known as squibs and are blanks. There is no reason to become alarmed or return fire. It’s all just a bunch of show business make believe.
