Everybody's Going Out and Having Fun . . .

Orangedale United Church.

Our friend, Murdo, and his guitar.
There was a large crowd at the Orangedale United Church of Canada  having fun last Sunday night at the concert performed by the Orangedale Special.   Our friend, Murdo, sings and plays the lead guitar in this four person band.  Most of the songs were country songs from the 1950s.  I especially enjoyed their rendition of "Oh Lonesome Me" because I remember this hit from 1958. It was written and performed by Don Gibson of Cleveland County, NC, where I grew up.  Gibson was one of our hometown boys.  Songs by Johnny Cash and the Dixie Chicks were also on their play list.

Not only did we enjoy the music, but we had a chance to visit with friends.  The Beavers, also from NC, who have a vacation spot near us here in Cape Breton were there as well as Yvonne and Kenneth from Malagawatch.

It's been a long time since I've seen folks having so much fun in church!
