What’s a birthday party without some dancing and great music? Well, I’m sure its still a lot of fun, but when one of your friend is having a birthday party at the Kitchen Pass in Parsons, KS. and Fat Dixie is the band, well, its a not-to-be-missed event!
Fat Dixie is a Southern Rock band from Oklahoma City. Their musical influence falls into those favorites like Train, Little Texas, Willie Nelson, Matchbox 20, and the Black Crowes.
Loved in this area of the nation, they are a sweet bunch of guys whose sound keeps me and my friends on the dance floor all night long.
I am a bit biased for these boys as they have taken my “rock star” son, Elliot, under their wing and often invite him to open for them when he’s back from college. Not the case last night as Elliot was in Denver playing in an NCAA Tennis Tournament with his University of Colorado teammates. Sorry Ell! It wasn’t the same without you but your dad played his heart out on the harmonica!
Party pics are below. Suffice to say we all had a great time…some more than others!
Geez…and you thought Kansas was boring?
Jarrod (Guitar) snuggles up between sets
T.J. (Vocals and Guitar) and I catch up!
Brian plays a mean harp!
T.J. sings one of his originals
Cherryvale, Kansas (its a stretch…but picture it)…perfect night, sweatshirt weather, the smell of a tailgate party in the air and the faint buzzing of the lights over the football field as tiny little bugs swarm around its glow. Ahhhh…the thrill of Fall and a Friday night game!
Okay…that’s enough squishy nonsense. The rest of the night was far from nostalgic as Hunter and his Bluestreaks were handed a 0-35 loss from the Cherryvale Chargers.
Ethpar to Justin….Do you think you could organize a “football” team in Kansas?
We held them the last 9:42 minutes
defense takes over.
I had the opportunity this week to spend a day at Futures Unlimited, in Wellington, Kansas, helping the agency to launch Behavior Tracking. Throughout four sessions in the day we reviewed Interval Data and worked with the Futures staff to create Behavior Event Reports that could be used to track quality for the people they support.
Enjoy the pics from the day! Special thanks to Christi, Meagan, Tammy, and Stephanie for their help.
