Hookah Run night two...............................

Hi!!!! We're back again!!!!!

OK.....I know it's been a week and a half, but better late than never, right??? That's what we said when we showed up late to the show anyway.......
So, after the run to Cincinnatti last Friday, Dave, Kellyann and I all headed back to Indy to stay at their house. We managed to get home in about two hours, which wasn't bad at all. We all got to bed at about 5:00 AM, and I was the last one up (of course) at noon. We ate some breakfast, and headed back to Kokomo to hang out at my house for awhile before we left for Sylvania.

According to our calculations, Sylvania should have only been about a two and a half hour drive tops. Well, our calculations were way wrong!!!!! It actually took us about four hours to get there.

I always love a road trip, so it wasn't too bad being on the road that long. We were all excited to see the boys again, and depsite almost being hit head on by a crazy semi-driver, we made it there safely at about 10:00.

I was pretty disappointed when we got there because we found out that they had been playing already, and they would only be on until midnight. That's really early for a Hookah show to end. I think it was probably because it was an outdoor venue, and there's some kind of noise ordinance......either way, we had no problem jumping up front and getting our spot in the crowd.

Even though we only caught the second set, the show was rockin'!!!! I got to see my Friend Kelly Jo, from Michigan. She is always so much fun!!! One of our favorite songs is "Party Girl," and there's always some kind of trickery that comes along with that being played.
This time it came from the crowd...actuallly, from Kelly Jo. She is a great seamstress, and made a pair of thong undies with a schwa on them to throw on the stage when they played "Party Girl." Her friend Steph also made a sign saying "Party girls wear schwa undies!!" They held this sign up through that whole song and the undies ended up on the stage. It was really funny when the girls threw them up there. Cliff tried to catch them on the neck of his bass, but after that, all the guys acted like they were scared to touch them. He he he......I guess maybe it's only funny to the party girls, but I thought it was hysterical!!!



There they lie....lonely little party girl panties.......................This is Kelly Jo....she's responsible for the whole schwa undies thing.Me and Kellyann just hangin' out after the show. Kellyann got pictures of every one of the band members that night.....way to go my little paparazzi queen......I love it!!!!!Dave and Ryan doing....who knows what. I think I might have caught Dave playing with Ryan's chocolate locks....not sure :-)Of course, we had to get some pictures with my man, Eric...he gave me a drum stick Saturday night after the show. I'm like a little school girl when it comes to him. I guarded that stick with my life, just like I have all the rest of them.

It made me happy that he thought of me when he broke the drumstick. I had asked him for one the night before, but I know the deal....I only get them if he breaks them....they're to expensive just to give them away!!! So, even though I didn't get one Friday, he came through for me Saturday night. As soon as their encore was over, he grabbed them and brought them down to the front of the stage where we were all mingling around. OH....me makes me feel so special :-)

I have no idea what's going on with my face in this picture.....but I'm glad we got it because I think it's the only one I have of Ryan, Eric and myself all together.....Ryan is usually taking the pictures for me :-)Dave, me, Eric, and Ryan just after the end of the show........Cliffy playin' some mean bass and a little harmonica....man, I love Cliffy!!!!!Here's poor Kelly Jo getting strangled by her hula hoop, and the guy in the green bandana is Rob Skinner who you unofficially met in my post from the Friday night show.I thought the light looked kinda cool in this photo. This is Dave on keys and John on guitar.Another group shot.....this time, Rob's girlfriend Sarah got in the shot!!!!Rob was so happy to see Ryan....this is pretty much how they looked all night :-)This was the last note of the last song of the night. I tried to catch Cliffy jumping off of the drum platform, but I wasn't quite quick enough....you get the idea though........Cliffy and Ryan chit-chatting.....I'm pretty sure I caught them both by surprise on this oneAnd, last but not least, there's this crazy girl with a drumstick running around saying "Save me Eric, I'm in trouble!!!!!!"

But that's a whole different story.... he he he he.......to be continued.....
