A Trip To Torquay Continued A Night To Remember
As I lay there slithering further down the bath, I suddenly awoke with a jolt as my mouth and nose were now submerged beneath the freezing cold water and I was breathing out bubbles. Quickly coming to my senses and rising to the surface, I suddenly remembered where I was.
With no knowledge of the time, there was only one thing going around in my mind, I jumped up quick feeling slightly dizzy. “Please don't say I've missed the show.” I kept saying the words over and over as I waited for my head to stop spinning. Climbing out and grabbing a towel, I opened the bathroom door, stomping through to the bedroom slopping water everywhere.
Looking at the time, it was 7.00 pm. “Phew! Thank goodness for that.” Hubby was still snoozing, so I quickly woke him up. Drying my hair and toweling myself down at the same time. I put a bit of makeup on, not that I liked wearing the stuff, but I was about to meet Davy, so I thought a bit of blue eye shadow and some lippy would do the trick, after all I would have to make an effort to impress him.
I'd never got dressed so quick in my life. Within twenty minutes I was psyched up and ready to go, armed with all my memorabilia, which hubby kindly looked after for me.
I could hardly contain my excitement once more, as we made our way downstairs and out the door to the Neptune Suite. The show hadn't begun yet which I was very relieved about. We made our way up to the bar, my other half got me a glass of wine and I was ready to begin the evening session, in fact I was quite surprised at how awake I was feeling considering how much I'd had to drink already.
A lot of people were already seated, waiting for the arrival of David Jones to the stage, while some stood around chatting and drinking in the bar. There was a table selling rare records, magazines, books, videos and CDs. I found it all very interesting and was able to buy a few things, which I was pleased about.
But then finally, at 8.00pm the gorgeous David came on stage dressed in blue Jeans and a black shirt...very sexy. I was absolutely star struck, he was even better in the flesh. Not able to believe I was actually here, I listened as he greeted us and told some jokes, having a bit of banter with the audience, then began singing. He asked if anyone had any requests and I shouted out. “I Wanna Be Free!” One of my favorites, of which he sang.
He talked a lot between songs, with that wonderful Manchester voice of his still as gorgeous as ever. His backing guys: 'Breakaway Lite;' who were Jerry Renino on bass and Jimmy Riccotelli on keyboards, were brilliant and I fell in love with them too.
There were four girls that had come all the way from Japan for this night, David was so impressed he spoke a bit of Japanese, but I don't remember what he actually said. They were lovely girls with beautiful smiles and I really admired them for coming so far to see their hero.
My camera had been clicking constantly throughout David's performance. I found it hard to take my eyes off him. As a young guy from the fan club got up to sing and play guitar, David sat on a sofa on the stage listening to the guy singing.
I thought! It's now or never! So clutching my silver heart that was in two parts, I approached the stage and went up to him. “David!” I said. “I want to give you the other half of this heart, cause with you is where my heart lies,” yes I know what your thinking, how corny!
He was very obliging and thanked me. I didn't want to out stay my welcome, so left the stage knowing that sooner or later I'd be speaking to him again, even if I had to make a fool of myself in the process.
