I vividly remember those outfits...I liked them...but then again...I was wearing powder blue pants and boots!
HA! It is great to see the closet elf on organ again..he was funny.
I did notice something on the photo...the old EV mike (Ricky Nelson style mike).
I had forgotten how long we used them.
Good to see people dancing while the CM were on break.
One more thing...the Par Tee sign
We would welcome the CM back to the stage after our set by saying
"You've been listening to the sounds of 2 bands".
Only time we lost our billing....sometimes life just ain't fair :-).
Again thanks to you, Justo & Nix for sharing these wonderful pics!

You gotta be part of the inner sanctum if you know about "the closet elf".
How weird is THAT?!!!!
Back in thee day, we were ALL brother players.
The 2 or so weeks we played with the CM we were just 2 R&R groups that were pretty damn good and respected each other.
We shared a lot of "inner sanctum" intimacies.
The closet elf had his hiding place in the closet with popcorn watching the "headliners" do their THANG.
That was the beauty of the Par Tee...no matter who you were...it brought a bond to whoever walked through the door.
It truly was a time where you had to be there...and the CM were there to add their memories to a wonderful club.
I know they remember it more than a lot of other stops along the way because it was a place that each became part of
while leaving a small piece of themselves behind.
It was an honor to be a part of the "INNER SANCTUM".
We were both charmed with the details of her personal reminiscence, interesting anecdotes and history of the Cove area of where we spend about half of every week in our townhouse here on Massalina Bayou.
The story of the strength of family during adversity is truly inspirational.
I think Tides should be required reading to help us all appreciate our many blessings and, perhaps, be guided on how we should respond when our family members come upon hard times.
In addition to all the above, it is a serious primary source for historians on the lifestyle of residents of during the early 20th century.
A copy of the book resides in Mrs. Warrick's home church, First Methodist Church, here in .
It has never been checked out.
Joe was so impressed that he has tried to follow up on the story to find out where the major characters have wound up.
You really stumbled upon a treasure in that antique store.
We are working with the Historical Society with hopes of having the book reprinted so that others might enjoy this delightful book.
In order to get our own copy, our nearly 90 year old friend Ann Cook Humphreys, proprietress of the Ageless Book Shoppe on Florida Avenue, finally sold us her own copy of the book.
(She had a spell with her heart and thought of it almost as a bequest, I think, the book is so rare and hard to find.)
Thank you for sharing that little tidbit.

There is a type of dirt named after Dothan -- no joke! Read this, from http://www2.ftw.nrcs.usda.gov/osd/dat/D/DOTHAN.html:
LOCATION DOTHAN AL+FL GA NC SC VA
The Dothan series consists of very deep, well drained, moderately slowly to slowly permeable soils that formed in thick beds of unconsolidated, medium to fine-textured marine sediments of the Coastal Plain. These soils are on broad, nearly level to strongly sloping uplands. Slopes range from 0 to 12 percent. Near the type location, the average annual precipitation is about 53 inches and the average annual air temperature is about 65 degrees F.
TAXONOMIC CLASS: Fine-loamy, kaolinitic, thermic Plinthic Kandiudults
TYPICAL PEDON: Dothan loamy sand, in a smooth cultivated field. (Colors are for moist soil.)
Ap--0 to 6 inches; dark grayish brown (10YR 4/2) loamy sand; weak fine granular structure; very friable; many fine roots; strongly acid; abrupt smooth boundary. (6 to 12 inches thick)
BE--6 to 13 inches; yellowish brown (10YR 5/6) sandy loam; massive in upper 2 inches, weak medium subangular blocky structure below; very friable; many fine roots; strongly acid; gradual smooth boundary. (0 to 11 inches thick)
Bt1--13 to 28 inches; yellowish brown (10YR 5/8) sandy clay loam; weak medium subangular blocky structure; firm; many fine roots; few faint clay films on ped faces; strongly acid; diffuse smooth boundary.
Bt2--28 to 33 inches; yellowish brown (10YR 5/8) sandy clay loam; weak medium subangular blocky structure; friable; common fine roots; common faint clay films on ped faces; few plinthite nodules; common medium distinct strong brown (7.5YR 5/8) and yellowish red (5YR 4/6) masses of iron accumulation; strongly acid; clear wavy boundary. (Combined thickness of the Bt horizons ranges from 15 to 36 inches.)
Btv--33 to 60 inches; variegated yellowish brown (10YR 5/8), strong brown (7.5YR 5/8), red (2.5YR 4/8), yellow (10YR 7/8), and very pale brown (10YR 8/2) sandy clay loam; weak medium subangular blocky structure; friable; compact in place; many fine roots; common faint clay films on ped faces; about 15 percent by volume, red (2.5YR 4/8) plinthite nodules; the areas of yellowish brown, strong brown, red, and yellow are areas of iron accumulations; the areas in shades of very pale brown are iron depletions; strongly acid.
TYPE LOCATION: Houston County, Alabama; inside city limits of Dothan, about 0.75 mile northeast of Southeast General Hospital between U. S. Highway 84 and Alabama Highway 52; NE1/4, SW1/4, SE1/4 of Sec. 20, T. 3 N., R. 27 E.
RANGE IN CHARACTERISTICS: Solum thickness ranges from 60 to more than 80 inches. Depth to horizons that contain 5 percent or more plinthite ranges from 24 to 60 inches. Content of ironstone pebbles range from 0 to 5 percent by volume in the A horizon and upper part of the B horizon. Soil reaction ranges from very strongly acid to moderately acid throughout except where lime has been added.
The Ap horizon has hue of 10YR or 2.5Y, value of 4 to 7, and chroma of 2 to 4. Some pedons have a thin A horizon with value of 3 or 4. Texture is sandy loam, fine sandy loam, loamy fine sand, loamy sand, or sand.
The E horizon, where present, has hue of 10YR or 2.5Y, value of 5 to 7, and chroma of 3 to 6. Textures are the same as the Ap horizon.
The BE or BA horizon, where present, has hue of 10YR or 2.5Y, value of 5 or 6, and chroma of 3 to 8. Texture is fine sandy loam or sandy loam.
The Bt horizon has hue of 7.5YR to 2.5Y, value of 5 to 8, and chroma of 4 to 8. Texture is fine sandy loam, sandy loam, or sandy clay loam. The upper 20 inches of the Bt horizon contains 18 to 35 percent clay and less than 20 percent silt. Mottles in shades of brown or red range from few to common.
The Btv horizon has hue of 10YR or 2.5Y, value of 5 to 8, and chroma of 4 to 8; or it has no dominant matrix color and is varieaged in shades of red, yellow, brown, and gray. A matrix hue of 2.5YR, 5YR, or 7.5YR is allowed below a depth of 40 inches. Texture is commonly sandy clay loam but includes clay loam or sandy clay. Content of nodular or platy plinthite ranges from 5 to 35 percent by volume.
COMPETING SERIES: These include the Tifton series in the same family and the Baxterville, Malbis, and Notcher series in closely related families. Tifton soils are on similar positions but have more than 5 percent ironstone pebbles in the upper part of the solum. Baxterville, Malbis, and Notcher soils have more than 20 percent silt in the particle-size control section.
GEOGRAPHIC SETTING: Dothan soils are on side slopes and ridgetops on uplands of the Coastal Plain. Slopes range from 0 to 12 percent. They formed in thick beds of unconsolidated, medium to fine-textured marine sediments. The climate is warm and humid. The average annual air temperature ranges from 63 to 68 degrees F., and the average annual precipitation ranges from 48 to 60 inches.
GEOGRAPHICALLY ASSOCIATED SOILS: These include the competing Tifton series and the Ardilla, Cowarts, Fuquay, Norfolk, Orangeburg, Varina, and Wicksburg series. Ardilla soils are on slightly lower positions and have low chroma mottles within 30 inches of the surface. Cowarts soils, on more sloping areas, have a thinner solum and do not have horizons with more than 5 percent plinthite. Fuquay and Wicksburg soils are on side slopes and have a sandy epipedon more than 20 inches thick. Norfolk and Orangeburg soils are on similar positions as but have less than 5 percent plinthite within 60 inches of the surface. In addition, Orangeburg soils have a redder hue. Varina soils are on lower positions and have a clayey particle-size control section.
DRAINAGE AND PERMEABILITY: Well drained; moderate in the Bt horizons and moderately slow to slow in the Btv horizons.
USE AND VEGETATION: Most areas have been cleared and are used for the production of corn, cotton, peanuts, vegetable crops, hay, and pasture. Forested areas are in longleaf pine, loblolly pine, sweetgum, southern red oak, and hickory.
DISTRIBUTION AND EXTENT: Coastal Plain of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.
The series is of large extent.
MLRA OFFICE RESPONSIBLE: Auburn, Alabama.
SERIES ESTABLISHED: Houston County, Alabama; 1965.
REMARKS: The 1/89 revision changed the classification from Paleudults to Kandiudults in recognition of the low activity clay amendment.
Diagnostic horizons and features recognized in this pedon are:
Ochric epipedon - Ap and BE horizons (0 - 13 inches).
Kandic horizon - Bt1, Bt2, and Btv horizons (13 - 60 inches).

I didn't know this before, but there is a Dothan, Texas. Yes, I did a Google search on "Dothan" to see what would come up.
Dothan, near the Callahan county line seven miles west of Cisco in northwestern Eastland County, is on the former site of a depot established as Delmar when the Texas and Pacific Railway built through the area in 1880. Within a year or two, Delmar apparently ceased to exist, as the focus of local rail activity shifted to Red Gap and then to Cisco in 1882. A new community named Dothan sprang up at the site and gained a post office in 1902. A school was established soon afterward, and by 1915 Dothan reported a population of fifty. The community's school was closed in 1940, by which time the population had declined to twenty, a level it still retained in 1990 and 2000.

Dothan was the site of the first example of human slavery in the Bible.
Joseph's brothers wanted to kill Joseph because he was the favorite of
Jacob, they Daddy, but Judah said,
"Naw man,no reason tuh killt the dude.
We can make some money off uv his white ass
by selling him to the Middianites

Actually, it wasn't the first,
although it was the first reference to selling someone into slavery.
Remember the story of Abraham?
He left Mesopotamia with his family, and his manservants and his maidservants
(manservants and maidservants in ancient times were slaves) to seek a land
promised to his descendants by God.
As he wandered and grew old without any
offspring, he finally took his wife, Sarah's, advice and bedded a slave
girl, Hagar, as a concubine, begetting Ishmael. Later, his wife gave him a
son, Isaac. One day Sarah was angered by seeing Ishmael mocking or playing
with Isaac (the Hebrew word is ambiguous, and she asked Abraham to expel
and his mother, saying: "Get rid of that slave woman and her son, for that
slave woman's son will never share in the inheritance with my son Isaac."
Abraham resisted, because he loved Ishmael as well as his son, Isaac, but
finally gave in and send Hagar and Ismael off into the desert with food and
Ishmael became the father of the Arabs, and Isaac became the father
of the Jews.

I appreciate the correction.
So as I understand it,
Dothan was the site of the first slave sale described
in the Bible.
