October 19, 2009! or And The Winner Is!

Yesterday evening I watched this fabulous documentary on Netflix. The name of the documentary is Bruce Springsteen & 1. Mixing fan shot videos with some awesome Springsteen and the E Street Band performance clips. The documentary is about how important Bruce Springsteen has been to his worldwide fans. And I totally loved it. In fact, after watching this wonderful documentary—I am now an even bigger fan of him than I already was.

One of my favorite clips of all, in this entertaining documentary, is when this nice couple is being interviewed about the night, October 19, 2009, when they attended a Bruce Springsteen Concert, at the Spectrum, in Philly, in hopes that the husband, an incredibly great Elvis impersonator, could fulfill his lifelong dream of being on stage, as Elvis, with The Boss. And Bruce knew absolutely nothing about it until he saw their hand-made sign, in the audience, that they had held up.

I highly recommend watching this documentary, even if you're not a big Springsteen fan, because it will warm your heart and show you what a great musician Springsteen is and how big his heart is.

If you can't watch the Springsteen & 1 documentary, it is too bad, but I have found this unedited video clip, from the documentary, on YouTube, of the couple's interview along with video of Nick, as Elvis, joining The Boss,on stage.

And if you don't want to watch the entire length of The Philly Elvis Story, I suggest that you start watching it around the 2 minute marker, where Nick and his sweet wife, Dottie, are sitting together, on a park bench, telling their famous story The Philly Elvis Story.

Today has been great. Tony and I started mowing early this morning and we mowed for nearly three hours, before running to Kerrville, to eat lunch and to buy groceries, at the little H-E-B store.

We made it a quick trip to town this afternoon, because we needed to get back, to the rescue ranch, as soon as possible, so we could adopt out one of our super, great dogs, to our friends Jennifer & Robert.

A little before 4:30, Robert and his friend arrived to adopt this lucky, winning dog. "And now, may I have the envelope, please. And the winner is..."

"Miss Hollywood!" Yes, our super sweet Hollywood has been adopted!" And when Robert opened the backseat door, of his fancy black pickup—Hollywood jumped inside faster than the blink of an eye and it made us all laugh, because it was obvious to all that she could not wait to get out of here and go to her new, loving, forever home, in Kerrville. And to say the least, "We are more than thrilled about her long awaited and much deserved adoption."

And as I wind up tonight's post, so I can re-watch that great Springsteen & 1 documentary again, all I have to say is, "Elvis has left the building and so has Hollywood!" Life is good.

Y'all have a great evening and keep on laughing!
