Home Sweet Home


Vince is making good progress on the house!

It is starting to look like a cabin!

There will be stone around the bottom when he is done. 

We have new windows now, too.
Stay tuned! 

I'll keep you  posted on the progress.



There's been great progress on the new city building, too. 

Dan has to be feeling pretty good about it.  I love the fire hydrants out front.





Greenblatt & Seay proudly announce the THIRTEENTH ANNUAL

SCHOOLHOUSE FIDDLING BEE. This historical, hysterical event

will take place on Sunday, October 11, at 2:30 PM, in the auditorium

of the Old Avoca, Nebraska Schoolhouse. In the Open Division,

fiddlers will play a hoedown, a waltz, and a tune of choice. There will

also be other divisions of competition available for the adventurous

fiddlers, including a Singing Fiddler's Contest, a Twin Fiddler's

Contest, a Fee-Fi-Faux Fiddler's Contest (fiddle tunes played on

any instrument other than a fiddle), and a Hocus-Pocus Contest

(cross-tuning, sound effects, dancing, etc.), which will give

fiddlers an opportunity to play tunes that are usually not allowed

in any other contest. The prizes for the winners in the Open

Division are $100 for 1st place, $50 for 2nd place, and $25 for

3rd place. Prizes will also be awarded for 1st place in the other

contests. Registration for contestants starts at 1:30 PM the day

of the FIDDLING BEE. Admission is $5.00 for adults and

$1.00 for children. Fiddlers and their back-ups are admitted

for free.
