The Halloween Visitor
Halloween brought a friendly spirit to Flippist World Headquarters:
Annie Rhiannon. Arriving via Amtrak, Annie's charm eclipsed any
ill effects of her all-night train ride. After a hearty breakfast,
we all crashed for a bit. Awakening refreshed, we were ready for an
afternoon spent exploring the wilds of Anoka...
Come nightfall, hordes of trick-or-treaters came to the door,
whom we obliged with pounds of candy (after all, Anoka is the
Halloween Capitol of the World™.) When the kids were finished
it was time to hit the highways, destination: HOLLYWOOD!
Not that Hollywood, but the "Hollywood Sports Complex,"
a roadhouse in the country, 30 miles west of Minneapolis.
When we got there it seemed as if everybody had read Annie's blog...
The band dedicated a song to Annie by that noted "Welsh" singer
Joe Cocker. Annie seemed most pleased to "Keep Her Hat On."
A surprise visit from a celebrity enlivened the band's performance...
By the end of the night everyone was dancing:
AND A SPLENDID TIME WAS HAD BY ALL!
