Barb, I hadn't thought of that fantasy, but I am NOW!! ;-) There was another encounter with Andre when we were in Atlantic City. The night of the concert, we rode over to Boardwalk Hall with Chris and Siggy. After the concert, they drove us back to the hotel, but they couldn't drive up to the door to let us off because Andre's 3 busses were there and they took up the whole driveway. So, we got out in the rain (not raining hard though) and walked up to the main door of the hotel and went in. As we got closer to the elevator's we saw them ... the entire JSO and ANDRE waiting to get on the elevators to go to their rooms! ... Talk about instant elevated heartrate!! :)We got in the back of the line and soon more of the JSO came in. There we were, standing in line in the middle of the JSO and Andre. (Andre was off to the side with Johann his bodyguard) I said I was starting to feel like a "thorn in the middle of a bunch of roses"! Johann soon took Andre to the head of the line and got him on an elevator and he was gone. It took us several minutes to get up to the elevator's so we could get on to one go to our room. A few minutes before we got to that point, Kirsten walked up and talked with us. (I thought she was much prettier in person than when I see her on tapes and pictures) She was very friendly and was telling us that there were 2000 seats that weren't filled at the concert.I wasn't sure if she meant that was a good thing or a bad thing, but considering the weather I thought it was a good thing! The Hall is suppose to hold 12,000 so there must have been 10,000 there.It was our time to get on the elevator and Kirsten got on with us and one of the JSO members. For the life of me, I can't remember which JSO member it was, other than it was one of the girls. My head was just swimming with the excitement of it all.The whole weekend was so exciting beyond any fantasy even and a lot of it is still coming back to me in "flashbacks". :)Of course you all know that the night continued with us going down to the Tun Tavern in the hotel and so many of the JSO there.I think the funniest of the whole weekend though, was when we all got on the elevator to go back to our rooms and the elevator doors opened and there stood Franco! The look on his face!! Kind of that "deer caught in the headlights" look. :)I can't imagine if I went to 100 concerts there would ever be one as exciting and perfect as that weekend was. And to top it all off, getting to meet so many of the fans ... it was "Fantastic!!"
