A Date with Pat and Jon

Last Night Pat and I met up in Regina. We put on our acid washed jeans and back combed our hair for the concert event of the summer. I like to tell my kids that I dated Jon Bon Jovi in high school. They believe everything I say. Nice of Pat to take me to watch my old boyfriend's band. It was an awesome night. Kid Rock was amazing too if you weren't under the age of 10 because he swore a lot and if you weren't over the age of 30 becuase he took of his shirt and put all the fellas to shame with his rocker physique. But the highlight of the night was seeing Jon, the object of every 1980s teenage girl's fantasy. Although he didn't fly out over the crowd on a wire with a leather jacket with tassles, ripped jeans and a scarf he did look mighty fine.

Some cool highlights of the show were that the snowbirds flew over to start the show, one of the downtown buildings "wrote" the word Bon Jovi by turning on select lights in their offices, the band sounded amazing, Jon's blue eyes when he put on that blue t-shirt, pretty much the whole experience. I can't believe I dumped Jon in highschool. What was I thinking? Well I have to say I am pretty happy with the guy I have now for taking me to see Jon!

Here is the encore that they taped the video for called, "This is Our House" Jon and I think this will be a great theme song for the Saskatchewan Roughriders!
