Yesterday my daughter recalled her first concert, it was Kenny Rogers. Her memories aren't the same as mine but that is okay, I remember roses being handed to Kenny by my sister and her daughter, nothing about panties, unless they belonged to someone else, who knows.
The concert took place at the San Louis Obispo County Fair Grounds in August of 1983, it was in the days before Kenny fell to the vanity craze that struck him in recent years, (he should have left well enough alone.) Yes, he wore a white suit, however, I believe it was silk or linen. It was his trade mark at the time.
This is CamiKaos and her cousin Julie in mime make-up, and, of course the,requisite, signed Kenny Rogers poster.
Here we have the family Kaos, DW, NanaKaos, CamiKaos, and of course, DK the Blogfather. Yes, we did have our "quasi-redneck days, but remember that we had just moved back from Texas the year before and hadn't even given up our southern drawls yet,Ya'll.
One thing CamiKaos forgot to mention, she has probably forgotten, was her introduction to the real love of her life. COTTON CANDY! Her GrandmaD bought her, her first cone of Cotton Candy, she had to share, but Grandma didn't eat much, the only thing they ever had in common was a little girls love of Cotton Candy, a love that MissK shares.
Kenny isn't so much of a favorite now, every once in a while he comes out with something I like, the last time was " The Greatest", I think that is the name, a song about a little boy playing baseball with himself.
That was my waltz down memory lane for today. I hope you weren't too bored.
Don't Let Hate Win!
