We have been going to the Spring and Fall Rallies for about six years now, and we always have a great time. I think it's because we're reunited again, with our good friends, Big Ed and Red Light Roxanne, who graciously open their home and always seem to have a vacancy for us. Most of our good friends, live in Panama City, so needless to say, we come here often. When we got into town, Big Ed, Harley and I met up with Lone Ranger and the Beav for couple of beers and unwind from our ride. I saw a few other friends and passed around some hugs before we decided to go to the house. We had to get ready for a big night. We were going to see Rodney Carrington!
Big Ed got us tickets to see Rodney Carrington that Friday night at the Civic Center. So, the four of us; Big Ed, Red Light Roxanne, Harley and I were in for a great evening. We went to eat a wonderful meal first, at Hunt's Oyster Bar down by the Marina. This little local joint has the best fried shrimp, with not too much breading and cooked to perfection. The cheese grits and hush puppies are so good, they'll make you wanna slap your momma! I have never had anything bad at Hunt's. It's one of my favorite restaurants there.
After sufficiently filling our bellies, we headed to the Civic Center to see Rodney Carrington, the stand up comic and country singer. Now, I have never heard of this fella before Big Ed told us about him, but he made me laugh so hard, I had tears in my eyes a couple times. He acts like a simple ol' country boy that just can't get enough titties and beer. Yep, that's him. The titties and beer dude! If you have never seen him before, check out Rodney Carrington - King of the Mountains. We all had a good time at the show and our cheeks hurt from laughing so hard. If you can't handle a little nasty mixed with the funny, this show is not for you. Especially when he sings, "Show'em To Me", you just might get a sneeky peeky of something good! I did. Woo Hoo! (see something, that is, not show something!)
I have to share this video I found of Rodney, doing an interview at a radio station and singing one of his songs. It cracks me up!
Our first night in town was great, as usual. We went home that night, back to Big Ed's and Roxanne's, musing over our next days plans. The boys were going to go play on the motorcycles and meet up with some other pals, while Roxanne and I were going to be at the Derby Party. Some of us girls have termed it "The Derby Challenge!" What's the Derby Challenge, you ask? Well, stay tuned and you'll find out! Ride on! Lady R
