I'm Going To Be 12 Again, They Are Coming With Me


Does anyone remember the Bay City Rollers? When I was 12 my brother took me and 3 friends to see them in concert. They were a huge teeny bopper band. I was 12 and they were my first "puppy love".
I was going through the summer events catalogue for my city and in March of 2020 the lead singer is going to be performing in a small venue 15 minutes from me.
I was telling my adult daughters all about 12 year old me, it's hard for them to picture their mother as a child不不不
I know the lead singer is in his 60's, I know he is a severe, recovering alcoholic, I KNOW the show will be shit. The tickets are $70 each, my daughter's want to go with me, it was their idea. They want to see a little glimpse of my youth不不. So for a couple of hundred dollars, not only do I get to go down memory lane but I will have amazing memories experiencing it all over again with my girls.

    I do remember The Bay City Rollers and all the rest of the groups from the early 70s glam era. I was more into Slade and Sweet. My sisters liked The Rollers.
They were definitely a teen girl band不不

    I was a little old to really be a fan when they were popular.

    But I thought you might like this picture I took in a pub when I was on my UK holiday. Ryries Pub was at the corner of the street my hotel was on, in the Haymarket area of Edinburgh.
Wow! That's great! Thank you for showing me.

It will be such a fun night with my girls! It will be a fantastic memory, I can't believe 42 years after I saw them that I'm going to be taking my adult daughters, one of them is a mother herself!

    Hey, Cinnamon.

Life is about having fun, life is about love and making memories. Life is short, this band was a big part of my teeny bopper years. I can't believe 42 years later I'm taking my girls. . Is it stupid? Yes, it is BUT the memories we will have from this night will last a life time! When the 3 of us go out as a trio we ALWAYS end up getting into some hilariously stupid situation. It's ALL about life, love and fun!!

Why? Why a video instead? I've already stated it's going to be shit BUT why wouldn't I want to share and make memories with my adult daughters? This will be one of the stupidest things we have ever done together BUT I guarantee it will be one of our best times!!! I'm not forcing them to go, they are looking forward to another adventure with their crazy mother不
