One Saturday in February, 1977, one of my most beloved, most talented, high school friends, Sue Berryhill drove me, Diane D, Pete D, Heidi Y and anonymous others to Phila., PA to see Queen at the Civic Center. We spent the day exploring the City and Sue made a movie of our experiences. At night, we got to see Queen. I'm sure the rest of them suffered through the concert, but Heidi and I loved it. I think of it more often then most of the days I spent in the school. You know, that's probably because I wasn't in school all that often! I don't think Sue knows how special that day was for me or that she was the reason I was able to go there. I just want everyone in our class who didn't already know how great Sue is, that, indeed, she is. She's a true friend that will do all she can to help you. I was better for knowing her.
And, admit it, Queen turned out to be quite an awesome band, don't you think? I was able to see the boys three more times before the world lost Freddie. They are still in my Ipod! "These were the Days of Our Lives"
