What a lovely day yesterday was. I got antsy midday so Ernie and I headed over to Krannert Center to catch on of the free Ellnora shows. Ernie and I both developed crushes on the guitarist in Savila. Actually I couldn't decide whether I wanted to look like the guitarist OR the drummer. Very cool. Chatted a moment in the elevator with the drummer. Lovely.
Sidenote….during part of the show I wasted time wondering why some people dancing irritate me so much while I love it when others dance. I finally came to the conclusion that it's when people make their dancing a performance…and that in front of other performers that seems rude. The people dancing in front of the stage….absolutely wonderful! Also…thanks to Stuart/Stewart/Steuart for coming over to say hi (friend me on facebook if you are the facebook type). It's funny….I know I put this blog out there but I'm still always surprised when someone introduces themselves and says they read it! It was a nice spot in the day, so thanks. Afterward, we had about an hour and a half to kill before picking Owen up from Record Swap, so we treated ourselves to a late lunch at Crane Alley.
It was such a lovely day we sat outside and I pondered how sad it is that the neon is gone from the Cinema. Remember this? From an old Elvis Brothers clip?
We went and picked up Owen at Swap. My goofy sweet pea. He's wearing a name tag of Ernie's that he had when he worked on the old airbase. It says "We Care" and "Mr. Blackwelder."
We swept Owen home and headed back to Krannert. Our beloved Richard Hill had saved us seats front and center!! And to our left were lots of other good friends. The Bluebonnets fucking rocked. Completely rock and roll. And let's face it, Kathy Valentine really WAS always the coolest Go-Go.
Later, we finished off the evening at dinner with our beloved Debbie Stewart and Nick Rudd. Honestly, can it get much better?
