I'm talking about seeing a place you've always wanted to visit or seeing a bird you've been dying to see. Remember my blog about the pileated woodpecker?
Maybe a restaurant you've always wanted to go to but just couldn't seem to get there and you finally made it.
That kind of thing.
I have two of those experiences to talk about - oops, maybe three - and they all involve music.
You guys already know that I love the Blues. Petey and I are huge Delbert McClinton fans and have seen him several times. I got to meet him, up close and personal, and it was by complete happenstance. I could hardly speak, my hands were shaking and I had a smile plastered on my face for hours afterward.
|The picture kinda sucks but I scanned it and, as you can plainly see, that particular techy technique is slightly out of my realm.|
|I've only seen EG twice but I have all of her CDs and play them constantly. I hope to see her again in the not-too-distant future.|
I'd been singing in it for years but never had the guts to go it alone until 2006. Not only did I sing all by my lonesome up there on that stage but my number was picked to close the show with.
So there are my thrills - how about you. Feel like sharing?
