THE LIARS BENCH, NOVEMBER 17TH..GUEST: BOB PLOTT
In addition to hearing some marvelous stories from Bob Plott, the audience was treated to an eye witness love affair as Nannie, the Plott Hound initiated an affair of the heart with Liars Bench moscot, Bodine. At first Nannie nibbled Bodine's toe, then fondled his nose and then explored his fuzzy rump. At that point, Nannie's owner broke up the budding romance.
Liars Bench regular, Paul Agrussi did a thundering version of "Old Slue Foot," followed by Gary Carden's tale of Honest Jone, the rogue bear that became a celebrity in Haywood and Jackson back in the 1940's. William Ritter did a hair-raising rendition of "The Wild Boar," and Barbara Duncan gave her own version of the same song which included audience participation. In the absence of Lloyd Arneach, the Cherokee storyteller, Gary Carden related two Cherokee legends: "The 8th Clan" and "Gall Place." All in all, it was a marvelous night that concluded with Paul's version of "I Ain't Gonna Be Treated This A-way."
