Westward Ho Folks

This blog chronicled (via a diary and photos) a trip that Terry and his wife Stefi took across the U.S. singing in nursing homes. The trip has since concluded and we are now living full-time for the Lord in a mission, serving the needy and homeless.

Hitting The Road

My wife, Stefi, and I, aka "Sweet Spinners" are about to embark on the time of our lives. Both of us have been blessed with musical talents and abilities. We have chosen to maximize these talents by putting them to good use via providing musical programs for nursing homes and assisted living centers. About a month ago we lucked into a vintage (1978 Chevy Motor Home) we lovingly call "Honey." She was a one owner with only 59,000 original miles on her...how often do you come across such gems? Stefi has put the ladies touch inside, and I have lent a hand to some minor mechanical issues...overall she is ready to roll. That is exactly what we plan on doing beginning July 1st. Stefi, myself, and our "Daugter" Queenie are starting a Westard Ho Tour...beginning in New York, and ending in New Mexico. It is my (Terry's) intent to chronicle our tour. Touring has been a life-long dream of Stefi's...maybe not in nursing homes though. Me, I'm just going along to fill Honey up with gas ever once in a while. Our first stop is at the Tuxedo Place in Tuxedo, New York. The Activity Coordinator there is Christine Murphy, and this will actually be our second time there. Last time (for the first time) a few of the residents actually got up and danced while we sang. We always consider it a miracle to see residents dancing around the room with canes This is just a preliminary announcement of our up and coming tour. As the tour progresses, I will make additional posts...along with pics. For now, here is a pic of our Honey.
