Well, here we go again: the Five Emprees are returning at 8 p.m. tonight, for what's become a reliable recent midsummer rite: the annual reunion at Hidden Pointe. Sadly, though, I won't be able to make it, due to a last-minute window repair to my car ... which also ate all my disposable cash that would have gone for a ticket. Such is life, I'm afraid!
So, unfortunately, I won't have an update this weekend, though I may check for footage that surfaces on YouTube -- and if I find it, I'll post the links here, so your fingers won't have to do their own walking. ("We've done the work for you," as Time-Life says in all those late night infomercials for their "do you remember when?" comps.) Naturally, you're welcome to send your own comments and photos, if you like.
At any rate, I'm sure the proceedings will be good, and all those who do turn up should have a fab time, as the saying goes. As for the title on the poster ("The Last Dance?"), I'm naturally a bit skeptical -- every show's billed as the last one, until the next one happens, of course.
In the meantime, though, we have a reunion from one of Berrien County's other local legends, White Summer, on the books for July 22. I'll try my utmost to make that one, and hope that all my car parts finally behave...and leave my wallet alone. :-)
***UPDATE: Well, I'm afraid I'll have to do a similar hunt for links (and pictures) of the White Summer experience, too. Although I did finish my "rent money party" work by Friday night/Saturday afternoon, I was too worn out to think about doing anything else, but unwinding in front of the TV set...apologies in advance to all who expected a similar update on the White Summer front -- but when you're feeling squeezed from every direction, something's got to give. Such is life. :-)
