Our band went to an open mic night on Saturday night and I sang in public for the first time. I did some singing at two parties in the past but this was the real deal! I had a BLAST! We've been playing in our basement for years(my husband is the drummer) and it was such a "rush" to be on stage for the 1st time. My husband asked for a drum set for Christmas every year for 14 years. Everyone said he'd never use it! I began to hoard and stash away any bit of extra money for next Christmas and if he asked again I would get it for him. Well, he asked for a drum set again. After shopping at the toy store for the kids I told him to make a left and go past the next road. He asked where we were going, and I said "To buy you a drum set"! It blew his mind. He had 2 lessons as a kid and picked it right back up, I was amazed. He plays by ear and he is fantastic, he really got to show his stuff on Saturday. HE is why I sing!!! We had such great feedback from everyone and apparantly we're going to be on U Tube. We were asked to return next month as the feature band! I guess we're finally out of the basement! This is a dream come true for my husband Dennis and I'm so happy to be along for the ride. We've been through so much together, he has been my rock. When the good times come we are grateful, and we cherish it. Good things do happen. I hope something good happens to all of you today.
