We had a great time at Hill, Peterson, Carper, Bee and Deitzler law firm. We all thank them very much for allowing us to use their building for this month's Pistons & Pints.
Hosted by Charles and Cindy Justice, this was an event to be remembered. The Bar-B-Que was great as well as all the other food. Drinks were plentiful, including Falcor wine from law partners Jim Peterson and Mike Bee's vineyard in California, and our own Bob Wright's wine that he makes right here in the hills of West Virginia.
What a beautiful facility they have. From the handmade woodwork to the finely crafted conference table made by Dennis Peterson, brother to law partner Jim Peterson, to the Remington sculpture, everything was impeccable. From outdoor amenities to indoor ambiance the location was perfect. With comfortable seating and the live band I don't believe we could have had a better time.
Charlie and Cindy's daughter-in-law, Emmy Justice, made a beautiful british flag cake.
The three member country/western band was a great addition and everyone enjoyed them but we were still able to have some good car conversations. The leader was Rob McNurlin and he along with his Beatnik
Cowboys, Jeff Preston on guitar and Jeff Ware on bass performed. Rob is a country/western artist that has played various venues around the tri-state such as the Hank Williams Tribute, Mountain Stage, and the Bluegrass Café. He has also performed with Marty Stuart, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot and others.
The band hailed from the Ashland, KY area so I have dubbed them with a secondary name. The Kentucky Pistons. The country/western genre was something we all enjoyed. Even folks who claimed not to enjoy country/western music admitted that they enjoyed the band.
Ken Rubin and his lovely wife Barbara seemed to enjoy them the most. Here's Ken singing along, with his head thrown back.
As far as car talk is concerned, Barry McCoy will have his car back on the road soon after some overdrive issues and thanks to Kevin Roberts and Steve Ewing, Richard Stephenson is well on his way to getting his E-Type engine problems resolved and even spiffed up a little bit.
Here are the other photos I took.
See ya July 2nd at Golden Corral and for our Point Pleasant/Buffington Island cruise.
