Buck Rogers And Me


This past Saturday night was a special one. I finally got a chance to catch Jim Tharp's band, Buck Rogers. Jim, who is the boyfriend of Renee Fish (my oldest friend, to those of you who may be unfamiliar), has been an avid supporter of this very blog since it's conception a little over a year ago. Buck Rogers--Jim's high school band--reformed around that same time. Lisa and I had been wanting to go check out a performance, but have never really had the opportunity due to issues with Audrey.

Lisa and Audrey headed out to St. Louis this past weekend. I had to stay behind because of a Saturday training for work. So when I received an invite from Renee on Friday night, I had to jump on the opportunity. I rallied up the usual gang of rockers and we headed out to Barley's Brewhouse on I-435 and Midland.

When I arrived, a smiling Jim approached me, offered his hand and said one thing: "Love the blog."

After two solid hours of rocking, I can only reply one way: touche.

Last Saturday night was indeed a lot of fun. Jim's band was great. We can't wait to listen to them again soon. It was also fun to hang out with Mark, Brandon, and Renee, and to meet Jim's family. I must have heard Mark say that Renee was her oldest friend about 10 times throughout the evening.

I had a lot of fun with you guys there too.

Mark - I'm glad you decided to have your guys' night with me. :)

Hugs, Renee

Renee would probably prefer that you refer to her as your friend for the longest time as opposed to your "oldest friend". (You'll understand when you get to be my age. :-)

Hey Lloyd, we'd love to go hear Jim one of these nights. We talked about it, so now we just need to do it, right?
