A running dialogue of my life...family, friends, work....and the craziness I sometimes see and hear.

Hubby and I played our big gig last night. It was absolutely fantastic! But.....did either one of us think to bring a camera? NO!
We did, however, ask some friends to take a picture of the sign outside.
Yes, that DOES say Tag and Karen playing on Thursday night, and YES! that does say Taylor Hicks playing on Friday night!
WE OPENED FOR TAYLOR HICKS!!
Can you imagine? Us on the same stage as an American Idol winner? We've hit the big time!
Seriously, it was way more fun that I thought it would be. I was pretty nervous on the way over, but as people started showing up, and they are all friends and family, I started to calm down. The large glass of wine and the pep talk from my friend Betsi surely had nothing to do with it.
We sang our hearts out....people were smiling.....laughing in the right places.......and singing along with songs they'd heard us sing before. It was so gratifying to know that everyone was having a good time.
We finished off with a standing ovation. Unbelievable!
So thanks to our great back-up band - Doug, Ricky and Scot. Thanks to Laurie and Laurie for all your patience at rehearsals. Thanks to Debbie for the beautiful song she sang with Doug in honor of Tag's Mom. Thanks to Gayle for running the whole show. And especially thanks to my wonderful Hubby. Words cannot describe how fantasticl you are. You have a way of making everyone feel special and happy.....most especially me.
