Happy Birthday, Roy Orbison!

My brother decided to have a party in honor of what would have been Roy Orbison's 70th birthday, April 22. He rented the Civic Center in Mexia, Texas, our hometown, and invited just about everybody he knew. Naturally I couldn't resist attending.

The star attraction was, of course, a performance by Roy Orbison, or at least a reasonable facsimile of same. He was great, and he's pictured at the left with a couple of my high school classmates, Claudia Moss New and Mary Clark Mortimer. A great time was had by all.

So, where is the picture of Bill and Roy singing Elvis karaoke? Did your brother give out the Orbison sunshades as party favors?

He gave out 10 pairs of the Official Sunshades ordered from the Orbison website.
