Your requests have been answered - a blog post! Sorry about the long wait, work can get in the way of the creative juices. I had a very special day a couple of weekends ago. One of my childhood dreams came true! I meet Peter Tork from The Monkees!
It was a quick decision. I called the fan club number and made reservations for three at Club 66 in Edgewood, Maryland. It's a small town located on the outskirts of Baltimore and a favorite of Peter's.
He walked in to the joint, looking cool and relaxed. Nobody made a fuss, no rushing to catch a gander. Instead he made his way around the small room and introduced himself. When he made his way to me, my heart pattered quicker. I told him the usual fan story, about my Dad giving me their record. He nodded and told me about the upcoming Monkees concert and how Davy Jones just spoke with him that morning. My heart fluttered.
He played a few songs as well as we sat eating the delicious lunch that was provided. Afterwards everybody lined up for pictures and signatures. I beamed as Boyfriend snapped a picture and then Peter said goodbye with a hug.
What a wonderful day!
