we got buffaloe!

Most people probably know by now that Ellen had to delay her trip, so we are going to have this friday's practice at her house after all.We are trying to get the word to everybody, but pass it on anyhow.
I can talk now about the surprise for the group. After some scheming, we surprised Jerry last thursday with new buffaloe hides for drum heads! Richard shopped around a lot, and Jerry says these are great hides, uniform and almost flawless. There is easily enough for our drum and for the prison drum , too. In case you haven,t heard, we dicided it would be easier to make a new drum for the prison rather than trying to get the old one out.
Speaking of the prison, we are supposed to go into the women's in May, but we don't have a date yet.
Once again, remember the mothers day powwow at seven circles.
See you friday.
