When Cindy Kongshaug's choir performed the "Country Legends" concert back in 2007, it was such a hit and she had many, many requests since to do it again. Kongshaug has always used the excuse she didn't have a band to play the country music. One night when she was talking to Dee J Traudt of the "TC Cats Band," Dee J said, "Well, we all play by ear, so we could learn the western songs." They have been working on some Johnny Cash, George Jones and Conway Twitty songs, so it worked and now The Return of The Country Legends is a fact.

We look forward to future expeditions, whether it's over the river and through the woods to Grandma's house, a vacation in the tropics, or a fishing trip into the wilds of Canada. Poring over maps, imagining what the lakes, rivers and terrain look like and what lives there, offers plenty of winter enjoyment. Maps are models of the world. We read maps and dream of what the world is like in places where we've never been or what once-familiar places look like now.
