Lynyrd Skynyrd

I remember when I was ten.  I had an amazing present that year.  Dad took me to see Beatlemania.  I was immediatley hooked.  I loved the crowd; I loved the volume level; I loved the unity created by the music.  Since that pivotal moment in my life, I have been to more shows than I can remember.  Lucky for me, James loves a good rock show, too.

This pictue is a little blurry - sorry.  That's too bad, too, because I want Rachel and Samantha to remember this one - their first rock show - Lynyrd Skynyrd.  They played all the classiscs - Freebird, Simple Man, Sweet Home Alabama, Gimme Three Steps - and I'm proud to say Rachel and Samantha knew the songs and sang along.  Rachel wasn't too happy at first (she's not fond of crowds), but, she was up and dancing soon enough.  James and I love rock shows.  It's our big indulgence.  I hope this is just the first of many shows for the big ladies, too.
