Our date Friday night was just wonderful. When I got home from work Eric was showered, shaved, and had the directions printed out to the parking garage, theater, and 2 restaurants he thought I might like to go to. He also had an outfit picked out but wanted me to OK it before he put it on. LOL (sersly, the man cannot dress himself) I was really glad he made an effort for us to have a nice date night. Anyway, I got my shower and all (my clothes didn't come in, but I had a backup outfit). The restaurants were both fish places and it occurred to me that on a Friday during Lent we might not get in and out in time to get to the show. So we decided to hit the Mexican place down the street. They are awesome. We had a great meal and I had a gigantic margarita.
We got to the theater in perfect time and discovered how great our seats were. They were pretty up close and personal. For those of you who don't know who Don Williams is, he's pretty much a living legend in the world of country music. He is 71 years old, and had hits in the 70s and 80s like Tulsa Time, Amanda, Lord, I Hope This Day is Good, Heartbeat in the Darkness, You're My Best Friend, and his biggest hit was probably I Believe in You.
I have loved him since I can remember, 30+ years. I never thought I'd get to see him live, since he's been retired. He did a small tour last year that I found out about after it happened, and I thought I'd missed my chance.
He was fantastic, and I'm not just saying that through rose-colored fan-ears. He was really, really good. He performed for an hour and a half, and played most of his hits. His encore was Mel McDaniel's Louisiana Saturday Night, which was a nice unexpected treat. He played my favorite (You're My Best Friend) but didn't play my other favorite (Say It Again), but man it was a great show. I am such a spazmo--I cried through half the show, for real. It was just very emotional. My husband loves my spazmo emotional crying, though. It's one of the things that makes me, me, I guess. LOL (I cry at church, too, most of the time)
Anyway, y'all, this was a Bucket List item for me, so I am so so happy it went so well. I will be humming Don Williams songs while I clean my funky "Mom just got a job!" house up today, for sure.
