Oh my goodness, at 4:30 the gals started lining up to receive their tote bags and then the fun began in earnest! The band "Fog" (four old guys) kept the spirits high in the streets. The drummer is our downtown mailman, so it was great to see him in a different light. The ladies poured into our village. Some danced, some shopped, some had a few cocktails, but they all had fun and so did we.
Our Zanie Janie neighbor that owns Simply Coffee had a great time dancing. She was a ballroom dance instructor in a former life and is even teaching Gannon to do the Foxtrot!
And then the "flash mob" started in the street and it was such a treat! Jamie Ross owns the Zumba studio down the street and her group did such an excellent job.
Talk about energy!!! (I could feel these old bones just watching these girls!) Thanks for a great show!
Our Gannon was our "carry out" guy. Since the downtown was blocked off, parking was at least a block away. He was thrilled to make $19.00 in tips!!! I had several surprises throughout the evening. Two of my old classmates stopped in and I hadn't seen them in a LONG time. Then, the best surprise of the night, my old friend Mike was standing on the sidewalk. We haven't seen each other in over 20 years and I was thrilled. We go all the way back to 7th grade! Can't wait til he comes for lunch one day soon. Now it's back to business. We have a full week ahead getting ready for the show at Old Mother Hubbard's in Munith, Michigan next Saturday. Thank you all for making Ladies Nite Out a success and so much fun! Until next time...
