    Default One Year Ago Today!

    One year ago today my wife (now Ex Wife and me were just pulling into Greensboro and the Amerisuites hotel for the calm before the storm First Van Halen concert in 9 years with Sammy. My wife never had seen them live so we drove from Louisville, KY to watch them and had floor seats! It was one of the best times in my life and two days that I will never forget! If someone would have told me in 6 months I would be divorced and my world put in a tailspin I would have laughed! I guess I got in that reminicing mood today. I do remember thinking at exactly this time that in 24 hours I would be at the colliseum preparing to see what I thought I never would again! Just thought I would share>..

    Kinda makes you wonder in hindsight. You're divorced now and Van -Halen was then too (for 20 years) . Was it really worth it? (the concert and the marriage) Seeing them with Sam after the absence is kinda like sleeping with the ex0wife after 20 years of not being laid.( it's better than nothing, but has it's consequences!, never living up to what it once was!) Anyhow, hope you have a great life and learned a lesson.

    Any chance you were on row 26 on the left end? I was in row 27 right behind some guy with a friggin hot woman. If that was you, I need her number.

    I also stayed at the Amerisuites.

    I know where you're coming from ... the 04 Cleveland show was my first concert and I don't think I slept at all the day before. And to think that was a year ago.
