October 6 ... We made our first trip down to Savannah, GA, along with our pastor Charles Brumley, his wife Peggy and son Ashley.  The bus broke down forty miles south of Columbia, and we were very fortunate to have Kelly along.  Ashley made a special trip down to bring a carburetor, and we made it back to Columbia with a bungee cord holding the spring.  Fortunately pastor Gerald Hughes in Columbia loaned us his fifteen passenger van for the weekend.  While we were parked outside Trinity church unloading our equipment, some folks drove up and asked if Gerald Hughes was there.  That van must really get around!  We had a great time at Trinity UMC.  They gave us a BBQ supper.  That was the best salad dressing ever!  Rev. Ralph Bailey is retiring in June, and was toasted by lots of good friends at the dinner.  I think we were most impressed by the new 4800 square foot parsonage situated on the fourth floor!  Saturday morning we toured around the city, saw the twenty-one parks, and walked down River Street during October Fest.  It was great to see Uncle Gerald and Aunt Eleanor, and also our promoter Danny Kramer of the Encouragers, along with his wife Dee, her mother, and their daughter Ashley.

October 7... We've sung for Bethel Tabernacle and Pastor Jason Watkins before in the mountains of North Carolina, but never in their home church in Beaufort, SC.  We sang for around forty-five minutes, then Brother Charles Page of Greeneville, SC, gave an inspiring message.  After the service we went over to Lady Island for chicken and softball.  Finally we returned the van to Brother Hughes and sputtered home on the poor old bus.

October 13... Once again we sang near Gastonia for the Cotton Ginning Days festival in Dallas, NC.  Anthony Scruggs ran a great sound, and we enjoyed the music of Southern Junction, who helped us out a Murray's Mill this year.  There were also lots of animals, rides, crafts and exhibits.  It was nice to see David and Che Hooks again, with their new addition.

October 13... We sang near Hickory for our cousin Richard Harwell's GMC RV rally.  There were folks from all over to share in Richard's cookout, and the Cockmans provided the entertainment.  We also had fun strolling around and looking at all the classic RVs.

October 14... We sang at Salem Baptist Church at 7:00 PM Sunday night.  Jerry "Barbeque" Storey was there, and he invited us back to his Christmas BBQ party just up the road.  We had a fun singing, and saw lots of friends.  Caroline teaches a few miles away at New Life Academy, and quite a few of here students were there.

October 27... This was our second year to have a bluegrass BBQ at First Presbyterian in Monroe.  John Hinkle invited us back for some great food and fellowship.  We sang a special birthday song for Darshanna Poe, and really enjoyed ourselves at this very lively Presbyterian church.

October 28... Brenda Davis invited us back for the second time this year, this time to celebrate the homecoming of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Rockwell.  Pastor Bruce and congregation made us feel at home, and there was some great home-cooked food in the fellowship hall after the service.
