Did Ya Miss Me?

Hell, yes! It has been 15 years since I last saw The Forgotten Rebels. The last time I went, I was almost 26, I had a year old baby at home, and KC was disappointed that she couldn't go with me. Yup that's my lil punk rock girl. She grew up listening to Adam Ant, Billy Idol, Stray Cats and The Forgotten Rebels.
How serendipitous was it that The Rebels just happened to be in K-Town on my 40+1 birthday? I was finally able to keep a loong ago promise to my first born.
We saw The Forgotten Rebels and they kicked ass! Speaking of kicking, how do like my new kicks? They were a birthday gift from KC along with the Rebels night out, and a ton of other things...New clothes, a night out at the movies....I was most definitely spoiled. Not like I am complaining :)

Lookie here. Another dream of KC's - she met the band members and had a photo op. Not such a big deal for me. I met them years ago when my brother was still in the punk scene,

That sweaty guy in the middle is Mickey DeSadest has been doing lead vocals since 1977. I tell ya, he still has it.

I LOVE this photo. It's perfect.
Of course, I can't go to a punk event without running into someone that remembers me, or more likely my brother. He was a real mover and shaker back in the day.

Here is KC standing between a very happy looking Dan and the Bass player, Shawn. Security no match for our womenly wiles. Just saying.
Lookit my girl. She blows my mind. So beautiful, so much fun.
My birthday was great. Kayla and Cody gave me gorgeous roses, and gift card for the movies. Shawn took me to get my hair done, I had a wild night out, my brother called, and my Mum called.
40+1 is off to a great start!

Happy 40+1! It looks like you and KC had a great night. Love the shoes, and the pics are awesome.
I never would be able to get my mom to go to something like that with me!

Coffeypot - I like some C&W, mostly Johnny Cash. I mean who doesn't like the man in black?
But seriously, what about my new shoes????? :)

Maggie - I love the Forgotten Rebels, so of course I wanted to go! I don't think that my Mum - I KNOW that my Mum would never see a concert like that with me...Truth is though, not everyone is so cool :)
We really did have so much fun, and I do love the shoes.
