I'm really hoping for someone here on the board to win! Dizzy good luck! also Sue and the rest of you. It was a great
experience for me and one that is still with me. I was a bit nervous and temp. forgot what to say but standing next to him and knowing he teases, I started to tease him like "Did you know I drove all the way from FL to see you." Then proceeded to tell him we had a home in MS, never expecting him to say, "where in MS?" it was like how do I tell him, it way out in the Country, no town.
so I just said the closest town to us, Ripley and he seemed to know where that was. I told him all the people there said to tell him, they love his work, I meant whom I talked to . ha Never told him my name or a proper intro ..I did say we had driven to lots of his concerts in TN, MS & FL, GA and he thanked me. He is just so super nice is why I can't wait for you to meet him. I may have taken more time than some, but I thought this may be my last time this close & I have waited for so long. I turned my back to the camera and just talked & then turned and stood with my arm around his waist. It was just a heavenly experience. My husband was concerned about me going alone up to the stage, so he walked with me and turned back when we got to the place. The guards were very serious looking but I just asked them anything I wanted as if I was not afraid, but I was ha! after seeing Alan, I was fine. Roger's big smile helped too. If you get to see to meet him just relax and tell him exactly what you want. Frankly I would have hugged him more but we had walked from a restaurant before the concert and my hair had blown all over ha, besides I din't want to get makeup on Alan. He looked so nice and neat. His skin is perfect, made me wish I had gotten a facial ha! Not sure everyone did feel like me, but it was like meeting a long lost friend. I will always remember it and be grateful. I didn't register this two times coming up, as they say after winning one, there is a period you can't I think. Besides I want you guys to win..I didn't apply for the front row either, since I want to sit with my husband and we have close seats, thanks to the Fan Club..
Good Luck to all. I hope Alan sings "Where Were You," so that Bill & his new wife can hear it. He said they wanted to.
