Sue's Views: Barn Memories
I learned to polka in an old barn that was made into a dance hall when I was 16. El Rancho was located north of Park Rapids on your way to Two Inlets. Judy Eischens taught me the polka, something I still enjoy. I can picture the couple who owned that place, but their names escape me now, as do the names of the bands that played there. Mostly, their names were relative anyway--you know, the band that Jayne's sister plays drums for, or the band that has Dave's cute cousin in it.
