This time they were live and in person and in town for their annual show. So, after a day spent scouring yard sales and then cleaning up the garden, I got cleaned up myself and headed toward town and the hand-clappin', toe-tappin' show that was about to kick off.
Ahem. You know you noticed it...but thanks for pretending not to.
Despite how I look in this picture, I really did clean myself up before the show. And since The Oak Ridge Boys put on such high-energy, kick-up-your-heels kind of show, you can only imagine what I looked like after the show.
I took no pictures of myself then...better to not have evidence laying around.
But just know that I kicked up my heels enough to cause my son to exclaim, "Gosh Mom, I've never seen you act this way before!".
I'll admit, I did go a little crazy when they did "Leavin' Louisiana" and "Ya'll Come Back Saloon", and I think I even heard myself let loose a rebel yell when they kicked into "Elvira" and then "Bobby Sue".
I didn't even know I could do that!
Wonders never cease.
I need a wild night every now and then, and so does he. It's good for us...and it was good for my skeptical husband, who even thanked me afterward for including him in our wild night with the Oak Ridge Boys.
And because I'd hate for you to miss out on all the "wildness", here's just a snippet of one of the greatest sing-a-long songs in the history of songs that you sing along with...
Sorry about that. But I did mention I had a wild night!
A night that keeps replaying in my mind, while a smile keeps playing on my lips. So if you happen to overhear me humming this song in the next few days, just let me be. It's kinda stuck in my head, and I like it that way.
P.S. "High 'o Silver, a-way-a-aay!"
