Ralph, the biggest thing happening in the Decatur - Avondale area this week (Saturday, April 27, 2013) is the Fifty-Five Year Reunion of the Decatur High School Class of 1958 at the Avondale Community Clubhouse from 4:00PM till???? We're gonna have a grand time listening to Tommy Ray Gurley (think Elvis) sing some of the greatest Rock "n" Roll songs of the fifties and early sixties. We're gonna chow down on a scrumptious Bar-b-q meal, featuring fall off the bone ribs, chicken, etc. So if you folks hear a rumpus going on in Avondale, it's just us old people having a great time.
