Sister Hazel

My favorite band in the whole world, Sister Hazel, came to town tonight to play at the Main Street Arts Fesival. I had such a great time. Those boys are not only amazing musicians, but they are hilarious entertainers. They always crack me up. I was pleasantly surprised when they played well over an hour. And afterward, Ken Block, the lead singer, came out to talk to people about a new cause they are supporting called Feed the Children (visit www.sisterhazel.com for info). Of course, most of us accosted him and waited in line to take pictures with him, and being the gracious entertainer that he is, he stayed and posed for our photos. Ken and I go way back. I've stalked him for several years. I'll spare you all the details but it all started with a crazy fan letter which led to free tickets to a concert. We met him and he remembered my letter and my name without me telling him. We drove 4 hours to see them in San Antonio and he sang John Denver to my stepson (at age 2) while Casey danced for the first time on a table. He told my daughter "if he had hair like hers he'd be a rockstar" (which is funny because he's bald and he's already a rockstar). He hugged me after a concert when I told him that Casey was in treatment for cancer. And tonight, he said he still remembers us. Maybe he does, maybe he doesn't. But it was nice of him to say he did. Sister Hazel has been a huge part of my family's life for a very long time. They are one of the very few things we can all bond over. My husband and I left the arts festival on cloud 9. On the way back to our car, he pulled me over and kissed me on the abandoned street in downtown. I don't usually allow myself to do PDA, but it was very romantic and very nice. Until I felt like we were about to be the next victims on Criminal Minds. Of course, we were perfectly safe, no one was around, but you can't be too careful.

This is Ken and me. The quality is bad because someone else was taking a picture at the same time so my camera got their flash as well. Oh well.
