July Meeting

Can you believe it? We raised close to 300.00 for the club at our meeting in July! Kevin did a great job entertaining us and Bro. Dave joined him for some great tunes! And who knew BobRob was such a great auctioneer? A great time was had by all! Thanks to Stacey and Anne for providing us with a great place to meet and great complimentary appetizers!

Camping Party on Lake Wateree

Never a dull moment when the Sandlappers get together for a party! The camping party at Lake Wateree was great fun! Thanks again to Roger for allowing us to party at his place and thanks to Brother Dave and the rest of The Slippy Rock Band for providing great entertainment! Cheryl cooked breakfast for us both mornings and did a heck of a job too!

The Bloody Mary's and Baileys and Coffee were flowing freely. Of course if you are an Allen or a James you start the morning with a  Bud Light! No fru fru drinks for those folks!! Saturday night brought a terrible storm but, do you think that stopped some of the crowd from partying? No Way! After helping the band put away their gear, a lot of the crowd partied through the night while tents and canopies flew everywhere! By the way, thanks to whomever saved my Monkey chair!

Peter Mayer CD release Party in Nashville

Peter Mayer’s new CD “Music Box” was released in June. Charlie, Debbie and Mary picked up Gail Weams in Ashville and made the trip to Nashville to attend the release party and concert. It was a great show and we had a great time. Charlie did the Music Row Crawl, shared a room with three women and lived to tell about it!  We all had a blast. We’re thinking Music City would be a great road trip for the Sandlappers….any takers?

“License to Chill” debuts at #1!

For the first time in thirty years, as a recording artist, Jimmy Buffett had an album debut at #1! “License to Chill” sold 239,000 copies in the first week! Way to go Mr. Buffett!

Drink of the month:

Thanks to Gene for this recipe.
Chocolate cake or pie
1shot of quality Vodka
1shot of Frangelico
chilled glass rimmed with sugar
orange wedge
Chill vodka and Frangelico over ice
strain into glass rimmed with sugar.
Place orange slice on rim. Drink as a shot…sugar, liquor, then orange. Great
Drink and tastes exactly like Chocolate!
But, be careful it sneaks up on you and makes you extremely honest!
