I spend a long weekend in Los Angeles with my son, Tim. We had a father-son weekend here last year – on my birthday and we hiked to the Hollywood sign together! This year it is my daughter’s birthday – happy birthday, Andrea! I suppose I should be with her this weekend, but I did send a card and a check!
As a member of the LBC Chorale (Liberty Baptist College – now Liberty University) traveling musical team, we sang every week on the nationally televised “Old Time Gospel Hour.” We also spent that summer touring CA – singing, sharing our faith and promoting the college. It was my first time in LA and I was stoked. The 8 of us 20-year old guys got off our tour bus in our tanktops, shorts and sandals and headed to a nearby deli.
“l watch you on television every week,” she continued, “you are those singers on that church show.” Busted! Somehow this lady in LA recognized us wanna-be beach boys from that weekly singing appearance!
