Redmond, Oregon - FMCA Rally
Debbie Reynolds talks to the FMCA attendees.
On another night, we were entertained by the "Texas Tenors" who came in fourth in the 2009 "America's Got Talent" show. What great voices and range of songs they sang -- everything from classical to country. We loved the show, as did the audience.
Tonight, we will attend the "Forever Motown" performance that we feel will also be great.
We were able to bike into town (a 10-mile round trip that day) and around the countryside.

The Traveling Vietnam Memorial was in Redmond and we made it a point to bike to it. Even though I have seen the original Memorial in Washington, D.C., seeing this Memorial is always an emotional experience -- especially since the Vietnam War was at the forefront of what many of us encountered in one way or another during our early years. And for all those who fought in the war or gave their lives during that period, we owe a hugh debt of gratitude.
Since we forgot our cameras, we took these pictures with our cell phones.
