Did I ever tell you about...

Those of you who follow my blog know that I am meeting with Gloria Gaynor on Friday. I am usually not star struck. But this time my heart is all aflutter.

About 20 years ago we bought our first video camcorder to film our grandchildren. Before Hubby left for work, he told me to take it to the mall with me and practice with it. I was very excited to see the Platters, who were doing a free concert in the mall. I found a seat in the back, and turned on the video camcorder and proceeded to film them as they sang a hit song. I squinted one eye at them and kept the other on the view finder. I filmed them as they sang, greeted the audience and talked to a person filming a copyrighted event. I kept thinking, What an idiot! Then one of the guys said, "LADY! Turn it off!"

I wanted to sink to the floor. But, I wanted to hear their concert, so I put it in my purse, shrugged and mouthed an apology.

Then I hurried home to wait for my hubby to return home from his afternoon shift so I could give him a piece of my mind...like The Platters gave me a piece of theirs.

Uhm, I know better now, so I will not be bringing a video cam to the event on Friday. I do have a cell phone...hmmm.

I will be dressing in period attire for the private event which has an 70s/80s theme. I may be stopped this time for street walking.

I would totally wear that. In fact, if you don't want to wear it again, I will buy it off of you. :-)

Great outfit Linda. I hit three thrift shops today but at 5 foot nothing, I look like a bag lady in any of the appropriate clothing or wider than I am tall. Why can't it be the 50's? I have poodle skirts, saddle shoes, even a roaring 20's outfit. Just no disco. I did find earrings that fit just perfect!

Hi Linda. Great outfit you've got planned for Friday! I love Gloria Gaynor and her song I Will Survive is still one of my all time favourites. Hope you have a lovely time.
