I'm So Excited!!!!!

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

I am so excited!!!!! This Friday, I am going to a concert! This is not just any concert; but let me tell you the story!

Several years ago, I was told that my cousin had started a band, and that they were doing really well. Of course I was happy for him; who wouldn't be? We grew up in the midwest, where nothing too exciting ever happened. But, my cousin had a dream. He moved to California, and pursued his dream! I am proud to say tht his success is tremendous, and he now tours everywhere, putting on major productions. He has won an Emmy, and does holiday cruises. He has several CD's and DVD's available.

I had always wanted to have the opportunity to go to one of his concerts. California is a long way from where I live, and travel is just not always available. I had heard he was coming to Florida, and so I went to his web site to get concert dates and locations. Originally, I thought the closest he would be was over 6 hours away. One of my former tenants had said she would love to go, and if I could get tickets, she would drive. Then, she moved, and tht was the last I heard from her.

Last Monday, my Aunt called to tell me that this coming Friday, he is going to be performing in a town just a few miles from here! I called immediately about getting tickets, and was told there were plenty available. My boss said he was going to get the tickets for us the next day. Well, Tuesday came and went, and so did Wednesday and Thursday. Friday, I reminded him AGAIN, and he and his wife were going to order them by credit card over the internet. That was just not meant to be, as they ran into one thing after another. Phone calls to the theater were met by a message. There was not even an option to leave a message. Saturday was the same. I had heard tickets were going fast, and would most likely be sold out early.

There was nothing else to do but wait untiul today. My friends made a special trip to pick me up and take me to the theater.

YES!!!! I GOT MY TICKETS!!!!! i AM SO EXCITED!!!!!!! Once I got home, I called my Aunt and Uncle, and they are going to make sure my cousin has my phone #, and that he calls me, so we can spend some time together when he is here!

Here is a link if you would like to check it out!

I have a lot to look forward to this week, and can not wait to fill you in after the concert!

Oh! By the way, his name is Ronnie. The name of his band is "Benise."

Thanks for listening to me ramble. But, did I mention that I am so excited!!!!
