The opening ceremonies

A few photos from the opening ceremonies of the International Builders Show in Orlando last week.

There was a musical -- "Stand Up and Cheer: A Musical Tribute to America" starring Jimmy Osmond.

Many genres of American music representing decades of our history were performed, from the Gay 90s to Rock-n-Roll.

There was Dixieland jazz --

Elegant dancers with the Big Band era --

and an orchestra with a great drummer.

Dang. That beats the nailgun competition! Did ya see that? ... And Koehler (sp?) always puts on THE show.

I only got two or three hours on the floors, so I didnt' make it through nearly everything.

But... did you know I won a belt sander race a few years ago at the fairgrounds? I won a T-shirt saying "Extremely Abrasive." Seems appropriate at times.
