ELLIE: So Mr. Waffles, are you going to sleep with Glogirly’s buddy? I do not suppose I am prepared for that type of dedication but.
WAFFLES: What do you suppose, Ellie? When have I EVER turned down baggage inspection and mattress making?
ELLIE: Yeah, I like baggage inspection and all, however I might relatively sneak into the room when she’s not right here.
WAFFLES: Okay then, I name firsties!
JOANNA: Do you hear that, Pancake Batter? You are all MINE.
WAFFLES: Pancake Batter? Whaddya imply, Pancake Batter? Who the heck is Pancake Batter?
Glogirly’s oldest buddy, Joanna, came visiting final week. Okay, so she’s not THAT outdated. She and Glogirly are precisely the identical age. However they’ve identified one another since seventh grade. That is FORTY EIGHT years. Holy CAT! Waffles cannot even start to rely that excessive.
Joanna’s son used to name Waffles ‘Wafer.’ So within the custom of food-themed names and mispronunciations, Joanna had some enjoyable calling Waffles all the things from Pancake Batter to Hamburger Patty. Sure, she’s virtually as foolish as Waffles.
Earlier than selfies have been even a factor, they have been taking photos of themselves utilizing the timer on Joanna’s outdated Instamatic. Fairly positive Joanna might have invented the selfie!
We thought you’d get pleasure from seeing a glimpse of them via the years –
Shortly after Glogirly and Joanna graduated from highschool, WAY again in 1981, they went to their first rock live performance collectively. They noticed Earth, Wind & Fireplace, with the Commodores opening for them, in St. Paul, Minnesota. Once they heard that EWF was touring with Lionel Richie this yr and have been making a cease in Denver, they thought, “What higher solution to have fun turning 60!”
They danced and sang till their voices have been gone and had probably the most wonderful time ever. And to maintain the get together going, Joanna and her brother are coming to the mountains this week for Sting’s tour cease at Crimson Rocks. On the September 21 no much less! …would have been unimaginable to see Earth, Wind & hearth on the twenty first of September!!!
After we talked about EWF and Lionel a few weeks in the past, it positive appeared like a lot of our associates and readers are followers, so we thought you’d get pleasure from seeing a couple of of Glogirly’s live performance pictures.
Earth, Wind & Fireplace opened the night with over 90 minutes of their favourite songs. Shining Star, After the Love is Gone, Causes, Fantasy, Let’s Groove, Boogie Wonderland, and extra. They closed with September and if the group hadn’t already gone wild, September lit up all the stadium.
Three unique and founding members of the band are nonetheless rocking it as powerfully as they did within the 70s and 80s. Verdine White, Ralph Johnson, and Philip Bailey. Philip Bailey’s falsetto was nothing in need of wonderful.
And Verdine White, brother of the late founder and chief Maurice White, had an vitality and stage presence that shone vivid. His smile says all of it.
Lionel is Glogirly all-time favourite singer, songwriter, and performer. He takes the stage prefer it’s his first live performance. And sings as if he is singing for you and also you alone. He is probably the most gracious, humble, sort, and beneficiant artist Glogirly’s ever had the privilege of seeing reside.
Lionel Richie’s music is actually the soundtrack of her younger maturity and faculty years. She is aware of each phrase to each music.
Lionel’s band is fabulous and clearly loves performing for his adoring followers.
If solely it may have gone on All Evening Lengthy. Nonetheless, Lionel sang for 2 superb hours.
One in every of Lionel Richie’s most memorable qualities is his real appreciation of his followers. Typically he’ll pause, go searching on the viewers, simply taking all of it in. He needs we may all see what he sees. He takes nothing without any consideration. His connection to his followers is one thing so very particular.
