The Pit

I didn't score front row center like I did awhile back, but I was pretty much in the center, in the pit, anywhere from six to three rows back. Were I a taller woman, I might have been able to reach out and stroke his pants or strum that G^$damn guitar. Were I a younger woman, I might have been able to worm my way farther up. But I'm not entirely too sure of that last statement.

My ears are ringing. My neck is killing me. My elbow is inflamed and acting all angry-like. My legs are ouchy. I sound like Demi Moore must sound after a heavy night of smoking. I'm totally wiped out.

All I have to show for it on the outside are the two wristbands -- one for general admission and one for getting in the pit -- and a T-shirt my husband-with-a-seat bought for me 'cause he figured I wouldn't be able to get out of the pit without losing precious floor space.

Inside, though, my heart still beats to the pounding of Max's drums and the strums of Little Stevie's guitar and the chords of Bruce's harmonica and the words Bruce belted out. All is right with the world because I saw Bruce last night.

Glad you made the pit, how'd you like the new material? I'm so looking forward to seeing him in NC. Outlaw Pete and Merritt Island Steve, kinda got a nice ring dont't it? Love to you and the kids.

Although I too am hurting all over, and am hoping to be able to squeeze a nap into my day, I am still glad that you talked me into getting GA tickets. The aches and pains will eventually disappear, but the memories of seeing Bruuuce up close will never Fade Away. I'm so glad we got to finally go see him together without either of us having to fly across the country. Although you DID have quite a drive...

My iPod is filled with a lot of Bruce songs. But his latest (for The Wrestler) just strikes a chord.

Either way, I'm jealous.

Fantastic! Sounds like a wonderful time. Makes me want to see the other Jersey guy, Jon Bon Jovi again.

Pete is such a sweetheart to you!
