Subject: RE: BS: Amish bumper sticker
Apropos of not much, "Chicken Charlie's California Minstrels" did a gig in San Francisco for the Tall Ships part of the "Sesquicentennial" in the summer of 1999. We were in period dress, as per usual. After that long, long day, we got back to the Embassy Suites with no time to spare to take advantage of happy hour prices. The choice between drinking cheap vs. changing clothes first was a no-brainer, and besides, "In numbers there is strength," so four of us invaded the lobby bar looking like refugees from Bret Harte. As we headed for a table clutching cool glasses of our favorite poisons, someone intercepted our lady singer and asked if we were Mennonites. You probably had to be there, but it's a moment we all remember. If we ever decide to change our group name, we could get a tractor and become the "Mennonites with Attitude," I guess.
