Something to Crow About

February 21, 2009

Journal, Videos

After a somewhat truncated Sommerer Family February Get-together, most of us retired into Jefferson City to attend a fund raiser for Calvary Lutheran High School. Uncle Ralph organized the event with performances by the Rowden Review and the Homestead Pickers. They played Blue-Grass and Old-Timely music, and both groups were really entertaining. It was a great event. I’d guess about 500 people attended. The Homestead Pickers play at Silver Dollar City, and Uncle Ralph and Aunt Lolly have been watching them for years. They invited Uncle Ralph up on stage to help with one of the numbers. Luckily, Lauren caught it all on tape.

Danny, Lance and Chance helped behind the scenes, and although Sam served as MC, his dad had the best line of the night: When the Homestead Pickers asked Uncle Ralph what his hat said he replied, “It doesn’t say anything. It just has letters on it.”

    Uncle Ralph is a natural.

    Those two were truly surprising with their talents! We busted a gut over Uncle Ralph, and Sam did an amazing job hosting. (He found out he was going to be MC just right beforehand.)

    Well, now I’ll be singing that song all day. Good job Uncle Ralph!
