We went to Wolf Ridge Golf Course last Friday night for its famous â€śFriday Night Steak Dinner.â€ť We sat down with Jose' and Heather Chavez, Brian and Suzanne Free, Keith and Robin Marquez, Alan and Stacey McDaniel and Steve and Regina Peck. You might say it looked like â€śDate Night.â€ť
We all had a really great dinner, and that's when The Gabe Cunningham Band fired up. Man, he sang everything â€” Stone Temple Pilots, Lionel Richie, Prince, Alice in Chains and Johnny Cash. We broke out on â€śRing of Fire,â€ť and the crowd went nuts â€” and it was a now a party!
Steve Peck and I were playing, â€śName That Tune,â€ť and Steve never missed. Shannon Burkhart joined the band for one song, and sang, â€śLet Her Cry,â€ť by Hootie and the Blowfish. I love that song, and Shannon did a really good job!
Of course, we had a little trivia, too. I learned the three greatest sports moments of all time from Poteau's â€śGreatest Point Guard (Class of 1984)â€ť and LeFlore County sports historian â€” Brian Free. They are:
No. 1 â€” Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak in 1941.
No. 2 â€” The Undertaker's 20-0 WrestleMania record.
No. 3 â€” Budd Davis scored an 83 in the second round of The Gilley's Rodeo to knock off Wes Hightower to capture the championship â€” and Sissy's heart â€” in â€śUrban Cowboy.â€ť Some say Bud won that rodeo because he wore his uncle Bob Davis' belt buckle for good luck.
We had a great time, and we can't wait until we come back because that was the most fun I've had in a long time â€” and I was actually home and in bed by 10 p.m.! I just can't stay up late anymore.
A spaghetti dinner to benefit Caleb Davies will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the Poteau Upper Elementary cafeteria. Cost is $5. For more information, call Amy Wise Dubina at (918) 721-5655) or Glenda Wise at (918) 839-4785.
Jacques and I have been fishing off and on at Spiro Lake since last Friday. We caught a bunch of nice fish. By Wednesday night, it started getting hotter, and we only caught two fish. It's close, and you can catch a lot of fish â€” and it's a great place to take the kids. So, go fishing!
Jacques is looking to buy a two-man water scamp. Any one who has one for sale, call me at (918) 649-7387.
Save the world â€” recycle.
God bless our troops and our veterans.
Have a great weekend.
