T'was a weekend of talent sharing.

First, on Saturday evening, Lucy and I walked down to the Gillams Community Hall for Gillams Talent Night - the grand finale of our Winter Carnival week. If some of the talent was in the areas of beer drinking and skidoo riding around the parking lot, well, far be for me to judge whether that is more or less better than standing up and singing six songs into a microphone when you do not have one scrap of ability.

These gentlemen did have ability, albeit to sing songs like "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown", but they were rocking it. Additionally, many Eagles songs were sung.

The unequivocal high point of the evening was when Lucy's friend, Hannah, sang two songs and played the guitar, an instrument which she taught herself less than a year ago. Even the rowdy boys in the back of the hall quieted down for Hannah. She was awesome!

Have to admit, Lucy and I exited quickly after Hannah left the stage but we heard that it went into the wee hours of the morning. Gillams has a lot of talent!

On Sunday, more talent was in evidence. We hosted our first ever spinning frolic.

A daughter of one of the frolic-ers said, "It is like a forest of spinning wheels." And so it was.

I would take this over the Eagles any day.
