Let’s Rock & Roll for a Cure – Sock Hop in Winchester, VA

It wasn’t Halloween but we decided to dress up 50’s style for the 5th Annual “Let’s Rock & Roll for a Cure” to benefit the American Cancer Society. Best Western Lee Jackson Conference Center in Winchester, VA was packed. If you were not in the parking lot by the time the doors opened at 7pm you would have trouble finding a spot as the show was sold out for months.

Good friends of Bubba’s Garage, John and Theresa Shirley, purchased a table at the Sock Hop and invited us to join them. Many of their guests dressed up in Mouse Ears to form their very own Mickey Mouse Club. They won first place in the idol contest. Way to go, Mouseketeers!







The Rock & Roll Relics provided the music for the evening. Their music wasn’t bad and they kept the dance floor full for the entire night. Several special contests, door prizes, a 50/50 drawing, and performances by the DC Chapter of Gottaswing (chicken routine was a hoot!) rounded out the evening’s entertainment. Let’s Rock & Roll for a Cure Sock Hop is a good event for a great cause.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
