This past weekend was filled with live music and football. On Friday, Jon and I had to split up the game plan because there were two events happening at the same time. Alex had Homecoming, and Lenore had a performance at a church. Jon took the boy to the football field, and I took Lenore to the church.
Lenore made a couple of minor mistakes with “Diary of a Madman”, but she rebounded. She was disappointed with herself because she had practiced for a full hour immediately before the performance. We met up with the boys later that night, but Lenore was determined that she would not stumble on “Ozzy” the following night.
Saturday night, we got there early to practice again.
She tuned her guitar more than once with my phone:
And she even had time to joke with some of the audience before she went on.
The practice and joking paid off. She did not stumble this time and the crowd exploded when she was done. I wish I could have taken a picture of the packed house, but I was wedged in pretty good, so I could only get Lenore on stage while she played.
After her performance, she got to relax with a Coke-which is a big deal for her because she is never allowed to drink soda.
Then it was time to sit back and watch the show unfold. And what a great show it was!
It really was a fantastic night.
