Ralna on Tour with the
"Live Lawrence Welk Show"

   We had another pair of lovebirds on the March tour and in fact they got together on our last tour and now are engaged to be married. Reed player, Kristy Reed gets a kiss from hubby-to-be and trumpet player, Michael Manthey.

 Ava sat behind me on the bus and our great conductor, Bobby Tillery was behind her. They were cut ups as never before on this trip! More fun than a barrel of monkeys.


   We had a new dance team this year, Michael and Natalia. I enjoyed sharing a dressing room with Natalia several times. She's from Russia and a living doll.

 Backstage on tour (l. to r.): Big Tiny Little, Ava, Ralna and Dick Dale.  

   Mary Lou produced the show again this year and put together a fun country segment. Three of the "4 Wunnerful Women" sang "Silver Threads and Golden Needles." (l. to r.): Ralna, Ava and Mary Lou.

 Cowboys Jack Imel and Dick Dale.



Tim Padilla is always a great addition to the show. He was my partner on our square dance number.

 One of the highlights of the trip was a visit to Mount Rushmore. The grounds changed a lot since I'd last seen it many years ago. (l. to r.): Ralna, Ava and Mary Lou.
