Today is a great day as my son has turned 15! Happy Birthday Danny. He left for school with a smile on his face and a gleam in his eye. Last night his Dad treated him to his very first rock concert, and what it show it was. We ventured out to the Jiffy Lube Live Arena (formerly Nissan Pavilion) in Bristow Va to see none other than Pearl Jam, featuring Eddy Vedder. I had not been to a show like this in years and was very impressed. Getting to and from the venue was very easy. No problems what so ever. True to its form it was an eye opener for Danny and he seemed very entertained all night. He had our little Canon SD-1000 with him taking pictures of all kinds of things interesting only to a 15 year old (redneck girls, tailgating, beer lines, $35 t-shirts, you know the drill).
Needless to say I was doing a little head bob dance through most of the night. Not to fear, we saw and heard plenty.
Our budding musician’s collection of guitars. He added a bass for his birthday. We are extrememly proud of him in every aspect. Perhaps he will be on the big stage one day. As I told him last night. Every famous musician once sat in the audience holding onto a dream. I think the kid’s got talent. Time will tell.
