Surprise Evening Out

Yesterday, a friend of mine (Janice) and her DIL (Angela) came by to see if I was interested in going to a performance in Valdosta. It was an annual Customer Appreciation event hosted by a local Christian Automotive store. They offered  food and various Christian/Gospel singers and a comedian.

It started at 6 pm and we didn't get back home till 11 pm. We all had a really good time and some great laughs.

Janice (R) is partially responsible for me having a car today since it was one of her friends who was selling it and she told me about it first.

This is Angie (L) who is a very sweet young lady.

Me and my stupid flat hair (pulled back) again because I didn't get a chance to get ready properly since it was having to leave "now-or-never" kind of a deal.

We met some very nice ladies who were sitting across from us. It was grandma (pictured here) her grand daughter and daughter - three generations of ladies enjoying an evening out.

Since it was Memorial Day weekend, it was a very patriotic affair honoring our flag and saying prayers for our men and women in the armed forces.

This singing couple is called "The Bridgemans" and they are from Cummings, GA.

This Gospel singing family called "New Tradition" is from Nashville, GA and they had a couple of girls in their group. The smallest one was just four years old and was a very good performer.

This last singer's name is Mike Upright and Janice is a big fan of his. She has all of his CDs and has met him before at another function. I wanted to take a photo of her and him together, but she was too nervous.

At the end they held drawings for all sorts of things, like gardening gloves, tires, gift certificates for car washes and oil changes, a big cooler caddy, steering wheel covers, a gas grill, turkey fryer and tools. Both Janice and Angie, won a small gift bag. We had so much fun! I almost didn't go, but I'm glad I went, only Gizzy was confused because I rarely leave him home alone for that long, especially at night. Needless to say, he was very happy when mommy came home.

Wishing you all a happy and blessed Memorial Day weekend!

What a great time you and your friends had. I'm sure Gizzy was just fine and probably snoozed while you were out! Glad you had the chance to enjoy.

It is always nice to get out for an enjoyable evening. We don't go out that much at night or at least not late. I always hate leaving the pups home alone when they are used to having us there. But they always seem to have done well when we get home.

Glad you went - looks like a very nice group of peeps.

I'm so glad you got to go out for a night of fun with friends. I don't do that often enough anymore and miss it.

Annie said...

What fun. I love going to gatherings like that. Happy. Unpretentious. Fun.

Cool. You have a car now. Glad to hear it.

And about the kid-proof med bottles - I definitely like the hammer idea. LOL

Ach....wunderschoen! Du hattest VIEL SPASS! (Dein Haare was gut....Du hast ein hübsches Gesicht, das nicht Haar benötigt! Ich trage häufig meine in einem Pferdeschwanz auch….Ich halte ihn lang, weil ich ihn immer oben setzen kann! Ich bin ein faules Mädchen! Ha-ha!

Ich weiß, daß Gizzy verzieh Dich…(?). Es war gut für Dich, einen „Sozial“ Abend heraus mit Freunden zu haben!

Liebe Grusse,

♥ Robin ♥
