4/29/2012 - Mickey Gilley Show

Lounged around the motorhome today, Aleta washed up the bedclothes getting ready for the road tomorrow morning. Shelby T lounged around and read.

Later that evening we went to the Mickey Gilley Show. Very interesting how, he told his life history in his music. He did all 17 of his #1 hits and more. We bought a DVD of the show. We were recognized during the show as being from Mickey's home town of Ferriday, La. Mickey performed from a chair most of the show, but his voice was still very strong. Mickey took a fall a few years back while assisting a friend move some furniture and severely damaged his back. Does not play the piano now, but his goal is to get back to it. After the show we went over to the Gilley Texas Cafe. There he signed the DVD and we had the opportunity to visit with him and some of his friends.

He still puts on a great show!!!
