3rd Takhe Kwahlals Just Days Away

43rd People's Choice Awards.  January 18, 2017.
89th Academy Awards.  February 26, 2017.

Sure, these might have been around for awhile, but they've got nothing on Volte's 3rd annual year-ending Takhe Kwahlal Awards show Saturday night.

Facebook Live this year maybe?  :-)

We thank the Hyde family for opening up its home the past two years and the torch is being passed to the Rossers.  (And please, leave the real torches at home.  We don't want to scare the roosters on the Rosser farm. ~NV)
