Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of April 14, 2012.
On Saturday I did some shopping, and the afternoon I was busy with some blog stuff and cleaning.
But I had an excellent and very funny evening. Dominique's son François whom I know since years had created a new band together with some friends. They were noticed by the local Radio and now sponsored by them.
Dominique had gotten 4 cards and had invited me, Ilona and a friend of hers. There were lots of people waiting at the door to be opened. It brought me 50 (!!) years back when I started to attend concerts and watch private bands. So many memories !
and for the first time I got a stamp on my hand, when I was 18 or 19 we didn't need to be "stamped".
I made a collage of the event. François is in the middle and in the last range you can see the proud mom Dominique, Ilona, me and Dominique dancing and enjoying. I had decided once and for all that I wouldn't dance anymore because I don't want to look like the mummy Mike Jagger, who looks so ridiculous to jump around at his age like an old flea (we have the same age, both born in 1943) but the music was so infectuous, that finally I followed my friends ! It was really a great evening and we felt like teenagers again.
I went very close to the stage and made this little video. Of course the sound is not so good as the
professional record of Cheeky Jack here. François was happy to see his mother and her friends. Later on came his brother and a load full of cousins and friends. All generations were there from the youngst maybe 12 to the oldest like Ilona and I with our 69
Despite my dancing, nothing hurt the next day, apparently my bones are still fit. The weather was lousy grey, windy and cold so I just went to the market to buy our supper as on Sundays we are both on strike for preparing food.
I bought green beans with bacon, mushrums in garlic and little roasted potatoes. It was impossible to take a picture of the roasted chicken, because Arthur started to meow his operas and wanted to jump on the plate ! Nothing can hold him back when it smells "chicken" !
I spent a lazy afternoon and in the evening we watched "Ladykillers" with Tom Hanks. Dominique came over and I showed her the pictures I had taken and the little videos, she was very happy with the result and I too, when I think that I only have this little Sony Cyber Shot camera.
After the film we chatted about the concert, she can be really proud of her son. He started this as a leisure group and they became successful. In "real" life he is a sound engineer.
