Girls Write Out
Thursday, September 03, 2009

Friday night, hubby and I went to see The Lettermen in concert. I'm NOT talking David Letterman. I'm talking "The Lettermen" singing group. It's a group of three men who have a blended harmony that curls my toes.

Okay, so these guys have been around a while (the picture is OLD). I sang their tunes as a kid. Loved 'em. So we get there and find ourselves in a sea of white-haired people. Okay, to be fair, I don't even know what color my hair is anymore, but still. I knew we were in trouble when I saw an elderly lady dragging an oxygen tank beside her. I figured she was planning for a wild concert.

Anyway, the concert was everything I hoped for and so much more. They were FABULOUS, entertaining, fun, offered fantastic music--everything was perfect. I didn't care who was around because during the concert, no matter how old we were in reality, we were all sixteen again.

We had such fun that afterwards hubby took me to Applebees where we had an appetizer. We were out till around 12:30--scandelous!!! But, oh, so fun!

When was the last time you had a "date" with the man in your life? I hope in the midst of kids, schedules, work, and appointments, you're able to make time to date now and then. Life is short. Enjoy the journey!

Diann,

~~"I knew we were in trouble when I saw an elderly lady dragging an oxygen tank beside her.~~

That cracks me up! How hilarious, and I love it that your life is imitating Maggie's! (Am I correct?)

So glad you had a fun time! I look forward to being able to date my husband again and not have to pay a sitter, but that in itself is a really high price to pay, huh?

Thanks for making me laugh!

My sweet husband took an afternoon off work yesterday and we went peach and apple picking. Weather was beautiful and we had a lot of fun getting some nice produce. Then, since no date would be complete without chocolate, we stopped at Hershey's Chocolate World (we live near Hershey, PA) and got a giant cookie!

I like the way you broached the age-thing. My parents went to see an entetainer at our high school gym in the mid 1960's. My mother told me they were the youngest people in the audience.

LOL, Beverly! You know Maggie well! LOL!

Sarah, that sounds like a PERFECT day!

Pam, aren't they great? Such a fabulous blend of voices!

Quietspirit--we thought we were the youngest couple in the audience, too. I'm sure we weren't, but it felt like it! :-)

I have a friend who loves them. I don't know all that much about them, but it sounds like you had a great time!

I am always thrilled when I hear accounts like this.

I am a 45 yr. old woman who was introduced to The Lettermens music 4 years ago by some friends who group listening to and seeing them perform because there mother was a huge fan.

I saw my first show in July of 2005and was hooked. Since then I've seen them another 32 times and have been fortunate to become friends with Tony who is the only original member.

As you said, the harmonies can curl your toes. Never in all my years of listening to music have I heard harmonies as wonderful as theirs.

Again, I'm glad you enjoyed the show and I hope that you will get the chance to see them again.

Tomorrow (Friday) is our date day. It's his day off and now that the kids are back in school (as of this week!!!) we get our days alone together again. I'm so looking forward to it. He's got a surprise planned for me. Yay!

Whoohooo, Suzanne! Sounds like fun! You'll have to let us know where you went. :-)

We're going out tonight, too--the big hoorah before four of the grandkids come to stay for a few days. I probably should take a long nap instead. :-)

Diann,
My dh and I saw them in concert about a year ago and they were fabulous. They'd booked the Convention Center downtown and didn't even fill it half way. I was so sad but they still did 3 sets and we more than got our money's worth. Plus after they signed autographs and took pictures with everyone who couldn't get through the line during Up, Up and Away. There were many from the Filipino community so they did several numbers especially for them, too. Best concert I've been to in a long time!

Diann, I saw the Lettermen back in college! I didn't know they were still around, but hey, the Beatles are making a comeback and 2 of them are gone.

As long as the Lettermen weren't dragging their oxygen tanks on stage, it's all gooood.

Diann,

I used to sing "Put Your Head On my Shoulder" to my babies while I was walking the hallway with them. I tried to croon like the Lettermen, too. That's a word I don't use often. Is that how you spell it?

The kids are age 15 1/2 and almost-10 now! LOL

Thanks for bringing back such sweet memories.

Well we have been married 48 years and we just don't have dates anymore we sometimes eat together for dinner, but no all the time, as I have dibetics and sometimes my sugar drops and I have to eat, and he is always outside doing something or fishing or hunting, I have depression and don't like to go out and eat or get into crowds, so it is hard. We love each other but pretty much do out own thing at this stage of life.
