A Cowboy Christmas Carol

Last night The Great White Hunter and I along with mom, Pam, Uncle John, Scott, Sarah, Riley, Wesley, Charley, Jack, Linda, Jim and Deanna all went to dinner and then attended A Cowboy Christmas Carol at UCCS Theater Works. It was presented by Waddie Mitchell a Cowboy poet from Nevada, that reminded me a lot of Baxter Black. The performance took place in a very small theater with not a bad seat in the house.
Waddie began the show by telling stories of his youth, children and wife in an old rhyming fashion. After some hot whiskey and a short intermission he along with (2) other individuals, one a fiddle player, presented a Christmas Carol brought to life by an old cowboy as Ebenezer. It was an amazing performance full of surprises and really funny moments. Even though it was past all of our bed times once the performance had ended everyone had a lot of fun.
