Thanks for helping us spread the word about #TTHD15! We’d love to have everyone with us that day.
Our pleasure! Thanks for the great work you did and still do over there Sonia! I keep on pushing it back but next year count me in!
That would be awesome, Ben. Can’t wait to meet you … finally. 🙂
Every fan should go see the Museum and Nutbush! And the best time to visit is during the heritage days! Sonia and Team are doing an outstanding Job to make this Weekend unforgetable! I wish I could go again!
Tina looks gorgeous, but there is something interesting going on with her mouth when she speaks. I know there were reports a couple years ago she may have had a stroke, but those were quickly shot down. I hope it’s nothing serious and she was a bit fatigued.
we hope one day to visit in this museum.god bless tina
