but that's okay, because, a couple of us will remember what happened for a very long time...and when we are old and reminiscing on someone's front porch, we'll have the DVD (or whatever that will have replaced the DVD by that time)...and we will smile.
Saturday, August 8, 2009.
The day was one for family members and friends to gather....to eat fried chicken
The main event? Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band.
Didn't know that Gary Sinise had this band? Don't worry...many of us didn't until we learned of the concert and did a little research. The band is one that travels to military posts around the world to play for the troops. Reading about all they've done and the places they've been reminded me of the old Bob Hope USO tours....full of music and entertainment for the men and women who are in the service.
The music? Awesome. Even though Gary wasn't the singer (he played bass), the band still rocked.
And so did the audience.
And by "we", I mean mainly my good friend Dena and I. Oh, honeys. Sure, the rest of the family had a good time. But Dena and I? Being in that situation with her was like being back at university, 25 years ago, when we first met.
Now if you are wondering if Dena and I went to the stage, then really....you don't me very well, do you?!
Of course, we went on stage (along with about 100 other ladies!)...cameras in hand...dancing as we went...oh, and singing...yeah, baby...we were singing (and I don't even know French, but that really wasn't even an issue!)
We got on stage and
danced inched...our way closer to Mr. Sinise.
Thinking that I could surely get a closer shot and one of him AND me with my new very cool cellphone camera that has the flip screen....I danced even closer.
I made my way, seductively (I'm so sure!!), and found myself
down his cheek.
The moment was brief. But, the tingly sensation in my left hand is still evident.
So is the feeling of the body guard quickly grabbing my arm as we danced off the stage when the song was over.
Yeah. I'm thinking that they now have my fingerprints and my name is on a list of
I don't care. It was worth it.
We also have video footage of the whole incident....gotta love the K-Man and his ability to capture priceless moments on film.
Oh...and the picture of GARY SINISE and me?
Yeah....I really gotta learn to click...then....pause for just a few nano-seconds before moving.
Still....it's a great picture.
