“Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy.” The horns echoed that sentiment while the crowd went wild. I felt like it was 1966 again, and I was at a college fraternity party.
When the band struck up a medley from “Time for the Tams,” I knew I had found my place in heaven. We danced the night away and didn’t sit down until they closed with “Wait till the Midnight Hour.”
Tonight, Marie and I took a trip down memory lane. I’d forgotten how much I loved the 60s.
Our friends, David and Kaye Evers (left), celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary and threw a party none of us will ever forget. They found a 12-piece band called “Class of 65” – how perfect was that for two young 48-year old women like Marie and me.
Yes, we’ve decided our permanent age will be 48.
The band members said they once played at the Straight 8 Junior and the Southernaire in Columbus. We probably danced to their music when we snuck into those places and pretended we were 21 – back in the day.
David and Kaye hosted a cocktail buffet that made my jaw drop. The mashed potato bar was spectacular and the meat, dessert and seafood bars were tantalizing.
Marie and I decided that we must go out dancing more often on Saturday nights. Dennis Quaid (below) swooped in and took us home.
Best wishes to David and Kaye. They are two people who are loved and cherished by everyone who knows them.
