The Liars Bench--On the Road, in the Rear View Mirror

Thank you for your patience Liars Bench fans. This week has been busy what with working on a Liars Bench logo,

future show planning (two BIG shows in September--more on that shortly!)
and, darn,
I almost forgot our "On the Road" show Thursday evening at the Macon County Public Library.
Gary told one of his signature stories "Mason Jars in the Flood" which is about Gary's role in the flood of 1940 here in Jackson County.
Barbara Duncan sang "Pretty Polly", an old ballad warning young women of lustful, murderous men. Barbara recited one of her original poems from her 1999 book "Crossing Cowee Mountain." And she sang a song about Junaluska from her latest CD "Music Says Go."
Keith Shuler, who lives on Buff Creek in Jackson County, sang several original songs, one about a bunch of stray dogs and Nance Dude. "Smoky Mountain Days," the title cut from one of Keith's CDs.
Dave Waldrop sang a song about a steel mill in Reardon West Virginia--"Are They Really Going to Shut the Steel Mill Down?"

Judging from the audience and their reactions I believe that the folks in Franklin and Macon County like us.

Don't worry. We'll be back--Bodine insists on it!
