Well went to Jax (Ringo) concert which is approx. 5 hrs from Panama City Beach. We left @12:00 friday, got to ex-wife's place, packed up the van with the seven of us and was off. Arrived at The Florida Theatre by 7:30. Got perfect parking place, walked a couple a feet when we noticed a big green bus in front of the venue and some fans standing around it. Then a smaller van pulled up next to it, in which sat our man Todd and the others. They began to exit the van, my mom was standing right there and she got to say hi to Todd and touch Tr on the shoulder.
We preceded to get our seats inside and a couple of drinks on the way. The place was packed! A small theatre it is, capacity of about 2,000. Waited for about 10 minutes and then, Ringo and his Allstarrs came on and did their thing, you know the set. They did very well as far as I am concerned, our kids 13,16 & 17 year old sons had a blast. Donna, my mom and ex-wife had the time of their lives when Tim was strutting his muscular body around playing sax. The acoustics in that place was excellent, we had perfect seats and did not miss a single antic Todd and the boys did while playing this great music.
I did take pictures during the show with my digital camera but for some reason they came out all fuzzy and not usable at all. That would be my only let down of the concert. All in all it was a great show and worth the boring drive there and back on I-10.
Mom still hasn't washed her hands.
