Lord I love my husband but don't trust the boy with technology. He was the one that recorded Owen's stunning, STUNNING mind you, trumpet solo at the 4th/5th grade choral concert yesterday afternoon. Today I went to his iphone.....nothing....nothing at all. That's fine though...it will live in my memory. Owen was perfect if I do say so myself. I was ridiculously proud.
Ernie picked me up a bit early from work so that we could get home and get the amp and the guitar...and the boys...all off to the school on time. Owen was very wound up. Leo did a perfunctory grumble or two but I think he actually wanted to come.
The talent show was absolutely wonderful. I had a grin on my face the whole time. I took a couple of pictures but figure I shouldn't post pics of kids I don't know on the blog....but suffice to say....aDORable. The little smile that came and went on the hula hooper may have been the highlight for me....except for my guy of course...and then again Eamon's brother Simon ROCKED his comedy act. I gotta say the drum rolls really added to it as well!
Leo was reasonably patient. He spent his time perusing the program. "Wait a minute...Breakdown Bop...is that the name of the song?" I explained the Blitzkrieg/Breakdown issue. He was outraged. I explained my theory about being in a group, working with others and having to compromise for the good the group. He just lowered his eyelids and ranted for awhile until I told him we'd discuss it later. I also discovered that Leo is a mean proofreader. I am a horrific proofreader (as you know if you read this with any regularity) but over the course of the concert Leo brought every single typo in the program to my attention. Lord I love that boy.
Mindblown was the closer for the show. There were a couple of technical difficulties (I told Owen the headliner should ALWAYS get a soundcheck) but they were wonderful and I think Joey, Johnny, DeeDee and their myriad of drummers would have been proud. I know I was.
