The entertainment at my reception was performed by the El Kahir Shrine Hillbilly's Clan. Some of them have done this before, so they cannot claim it was "just an accident". Actually, I had a tough time talking them into doing it for my reception. They were a little worried about whether folks would blame them for destroying the dignity of the Grand Master's reception. Only after I agreed that they would get paid, that they could sell DVDs of the show, that I would recruit some help for one of the acts, and that I would take all the blame, I mean credit, for including this as part of my reception, did they agree to do the show.
I think they "Dun Good," fer a buncha hillbillys. I know I had a good time. And don't you for a minute believe that the "purty wimin" didn't have a good time, too. They might deny it, but all you have to do is watch the video. Thanks to LarryAnn and Craigette for participating.
Just in case you'd like to buy one of those videos, and have a permanent record of the exploits of the purty wimin, and of course the wonderful singing of Jerry Garcia, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, to say nothing of that fella running around without any back in his shorts, here is how you get one. Remember, all proceeds from this video (and for putting on the show) go to the El Kahir Transportation Fund. So maybe you oughta buy two copies. (Just make sure you save a little money to contribute to HOPE LODGE.

He, or maybe his lady Brenda, will get that durned DVD in the mail promptly after gittin the order. But phone and email orders just can't be accepted, 'cus the clan ain't got no credit card machine, and unless you got the cash (or check) you just ain't getting no jug a shine, I mean no DVD. And VCR tapes ain't available neither, 'cus we may be country folks, but we do got class, and them VCR do-hickeys are just one step above an 8-track tape player.
Now, Ken and Brenda may be gone fishin for the first couple weeks a December, or maybe they'll be out polishing the still, but they promise that any orders that come in while they are out doing fun stuff will get filled right after they get back. So get that money sent in, NOW.
Remember, all money raised by the Clan 165 goes the the
Shrine Transportation Fund. So DON'T YOU GO COPYING THIS DVD.
