 Angel Jessie the Boxer was the first gal pal to reply: 
YES I wanna be in your band. I can play the drums.

Jessie was fun gal pal.   Jessie, the wizards' drummer, and this most handsome
quartet made up of fellow Texans, Travis and Crockett and Mayor Arty and Art Professor Jakey are happy to sing and play Forever Young, by Rod Stewart.

A concert is not a concert without some country music.

Sherry originally by the Four seasons but now by

My Guy

The Diva Slippers have a song for everyone now

It's a Small World After all

It's a small world after all
There is just one moon and one golden sun
And a smile means friendship to everyone
Though the mountains divide and the oceans are wide
There is so much that we share
And it's time we're aware


Just as the concert was about to end our YAM-aunty told the crowd she had a surprise.
She taught Rosy, Madi and Princess Leah  to play the recorder and sing
Now we end this most star studded night with
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star....

(l-r) Rosy Sassy Pants, YAM-Aunty, Madi and Leah aka Diva Slippers
What a memorial concert such talent and none of it would have been possible without
our staff, volunteers and musicians and vocalist!!!!!  THANK YOU ALL!!
We thank Mayor Arty, Jakey and Rosy SassyPants for
the wonderful BBQ, Ruby and Abby for the spirited drinks and delish food 

Now for some of our Amusement Park Fun!!

The Diva Slippers know how to let their furs down and dip their royal slippers in some fun

and they lost their crown and scepter at
Who said Royal Divas can't have fun!!!

Now for My Peeps way back ~20 years ago when they were young and foolish they took a summer vacation to Busch Gardens, Williamsburg VA.  Busch Gardens has several kinds of roller coasters.
Dad loves roller coasters you know the old fashion kind.  NOT MOM.
He begged her to go on a roller coaster like ride with him.  They walked all over the park 87 times
finally she agreed to ride The Big Bad Wolf roller coaster ONCE.

 The ride hung from under the track so mom thought it would be BETTER.....NOT..
 they watched many many times as it started off in this lovely setting
meandering through trees calmly.......

THEN just as it came out of the trees BAM they are just inches from the water😱😱😱
When they got to the water, Dad kept hollering for Mom to open her eyes
she kept telling him she could only take once sensation at a time and that was
the sensation of feeling she didn't need her eyes open.
The ride went around the track about 2 times.
YOU will never believe what happened after the first ride.
THEY RODE IT about 3 or 4 more times in a row and MOM opened her eyes and was 😀😀

While looking for some images of the Big Bad Wolf on the Busch Gardens website she discovered
found this information.

The Big Bad Wolf was a favorite of many guests from 1984-2009. The ride was closed after 25 years to make way for a new coaster for the 2012 season.
