After visiting my mother in Kemp, Oklahoma for a few days to help her with chores and doctor visits, I and my guitar set up with the MacDuff Clan at the Tulsa Scotfest Saturday & Sunday, Sept. 17-18. I sold out of my Scottish ABC books and sold most of my Irish ABC book. This was a great festival and we were blessed with good weather.
Saturday night, I visited the Hex House, Tulsa’s most famous haunted attraction. Based on a true, creepy events it was not as good as House of Shock in New Orleans, but it was worth the admission. Like House of Shock, it is not an experience for the timid.
On Sunday, I drove from Tulsa to Kansas City MO for presentations at four branches of the Mid-Continent Library System. I believe they have about thirty branches. This is the most efficient and best organized library systems I’ve ever been booked for. Every presentation was packed with folks who signed up to attend a week before the event! Here’s a flier of my schedule.
On Wednesday, Sept. 21, I visited the National World War I Museum in Kansas City MO. This was an overwhelming experience. The ticket is for two days and believe me, it would take two days at least to fully explore it. Amazingly, what they have on display is only 10% of what the museum owns. There wasn’t too much emphasis on the Eastern Front, but the relics, documents and uniforms and history presented were extremely interesting.
From Kansas City, I drove back to Monroe, arriving about 10:00 p.m.
