Remember the Alamo?

Perfect weather made it a great day to take a walking tour through the Garden Street neighborhood before ending up at the Performing Arts Center at Western Washington University for the summer noon concert series performance by Slim Pickens, a ragtime blues band out of Seattle.
Playing mostly traditional country blues and rags from the early 20th century, I especially enjoyed the additional Cajun and Klezmer tunes in their lineup of songs for us today. What a talented group - great musicians with beautiful instruments and strong vocals!

And one of my old favorites, the Alamo.
You do remember the Alamo, don't you?

  1. Mom,

    Of course I remember the Alamo. You took me there oh so many years ago. I love the picture of the Bellingham Bay in the distance from the Performing Arts Center. I have it as my desktop picture now on my work computer.

    Love and miss you,
