Sadly Molly has passed on and Bud wants to make one last trip but is not able to drive himself. His grandson-in-law, Paul, is roped in to do the driving.

Paul is looking forward to the trip as a great adventure. Bud has other ideas! He wants to get from Calgary to Mesa in as short a time as possible. Mesa stars Summerland residents James Fofonoff and Bob Read.

The show will be at Centre Stage Theatre on Oct. 20, 21 and 22 at 8 p.m. with a 2 p.m. matinee on Oct. 22.

Tickets are available at both the Sweet Tooth and the Summerland Art Gallery.
