Sunday Meeting Relatives...

Me and Cathy took a quick trip to Victoria, Tx on Sunday with Morgan for the Victoria County Czech Fest. While there we visited my cousin Jack (he's not Czech) and met some relatives from Cathy's mother's side of the family that we had not met before. Morgan has been doing some genealogy on that side. 

Here's me and cousin Jack.
Here's the Famed Shiner Hobo Band. They play polka music. 

The tubas of the Hobo Band. 

Here is a do it yourself instrument and he got to sit front and center of the band. Looked like his part was integral to the performance. The instrument was a broom and a box and he kind of squeezed and stroked percussion sounds from it. 

The director directed with a plunger.  
Some Czech cousins.

This one man band was probably a relative. Morgan decided from the name an off shoot of the in-laws. 

Food was great. Pork roast and sauerkraut. I think I'm turning Czech!.
