Well its happend!

Ok I'm just gonna get out with it.. I've totally turned into my MOTHER! We had our cable turned off for the summer to try & encourage our youngins to venture outdoors,read a book or I dunno,actually hang out w/ big A & I. (not the part thats like my mother) Because we don't have cable we are watching things we don't typically watch (I've just started to get over my Hgtv, little people big world,kardash & Flippin out addictions)-Sooooo tonight we are watching PBS & I am literally sitting here jamming out,tv volume full throttle,to Stenie Nicks!!! Dont get me wrong, I like Stevie, its just that my eldest daughter just strolled in & said"Mom,who's the old lady your jamming out to? WHATTTTT?? How could she,doesn't she know that Stevie is one of the Queens of rock?! Of coarse she doesn't, she just 15 duh. Back to where I'm slightly resembeling my mother, I can remember her listening to music way back when & I would just roll my eyes & snicker,or sigh because I just hated it. She would give me what for,then try to convince me of how great whatever she was listening to was -I never got it. Well, I just sat KT down and attempted to explain the diff between the classics & the junk they play today on secular radio & I stoppped cold in my tracks. I distincly recall as I sat time after time w/ mother pushing her ideas on me that I would never do that or make my kids do chores, I'd let them drive @ 15,stay out half the night, sleep half the weekend away, watch whatever they wanted to on tv, make out w/ their boyfriend on the couch while my rich, investment banker, model husband & I sat holding hands, looking lovengly into eachothers eyes as he carressed my - uh, oh sorry, I got of track...Where was I, oh yes ,well I once again recommit myself to not cramming my ideas down their throats! Ok,the girls have been asked to get the record player set up so I'm off to dig out my reo speedwagon,pat benitar & rickspringfield lp's! I'm sure they'll luv it! What bands do you still rock out to,come on,u know u do! Till next time! LA

I LOVE LOVE all three of those that you mentioned. I saw Pat Benetar in concert (wasn't good) and Rick. He was awesome. I was so close to him that I got his sweat on me. And, let me tell you, when you are in the seventh grade and get Rick's sweat on you that is HUGE! LOL

I also loved Loverboy, Styx and Journey!
