    I wanted to share this with you...

    But before I do, I want to say thank you to Lowell, Moni, Kerry and Hawk (and anyone else my feeble brain forgot!)for their kind words in my "Moments" post...I am touched beyond words. Even my mother doesn't really understand Adam's connection with Garth so, it really hits a tender spot in my heart.

    Now, this is what happened:
    Adam and I went to his hospital today to decide wether or not we would be re-filling his pump (it's a device that delivers medicine to help keep his muscles relaxed). This is about a 3 hour drive and Adam has NOT been tolerating sitting in his wheelchair at all. Fortunately, I have a TV and VCR in the van, so I always bring along my trusty Garth videos Today, the damned VCR decided to quit working (thank God we are getting a new van in about 2 wks!)and I had to pull over to calm him down, turn the TV off etc. Always the prepared mom (haha-right)I had my double live tapes with me(yes, tapes-no cd player in my ancient animal). So I popped them in and started doing my inthecarlisteningtogarth dance. *No comments from the peanut gallery, you all do the same thing and don't try an' get out of it!!* Anyway, I come into Whitewater (a med size college town in WI) and with my Garth blaring and windows open, I pull up to a stop light. On the street next to me was some guy walking, he stops, looks at me and proceeds to stand there singing and dancing along!! Wonder what song???
    The Dance

    Just wanted to share......

    Hey Paige
    Thank you so much for sharing that story, it put a smile on my face. It is so cool finding Garth fans where you don't expect to find them
    And I do know the listening to Garth dance that you mentioned, the one where the music just seems to take your body over and before you know it you are swaying and jigging along, not that I have ever done it myself ofcourse
    Tell Adam that he has good taste in music and good luck in getting your new van

    Thanks again for sharing, it was a lovely story

    Oh yeah Hannah, I am sooooooooooo sure you have NEVER done the dance with Garth in the car!! LOL
    I can never do that with my girls in the car, cuz sometimes I just 'happen' to let go of the wheel for a sec and they get freaked!


    Vanessa, thank you for thinking of Adam. Truly means the world to me!

    It's so wonderful to find another Garth fan when you're least expecting it, isn't it? I love when that happens. You catch someone looking at the Garth t-shirt you have on and they ask you when you saw him, cause they thought he was incredible when they saw him. It makes my day anytime something like that happens!

    It was an omen...all this junk about moving...too many signs today

    But I'm so glad I could pass my smile along. When it happened the second thing I thought of was posting it.
