My cruise-mate Edrie Royals and Jackson companions Margaret Vise, Ann Barksdale, Carole Kirkland and I were on a Danube River cruise and our boat had docked near Kalosca, Hungary.

The tour Edrie and I had picked out for this stop was the cowboy rodeo in Kalosca.

I can’t carry a tune in a lard bucket, but on this day I could almost hum, same song, second verse in perfect voice. A group of ladies from Jackson, Ann Barksdale, Margaret Vise, Carole Kirkland, cruisemate Edrie Royals and I were on a Danube River cruise. Our ship, the Viking Jarl had docked in Kalosca,  we would be there until late evening.
