Hello All! I have been without internet access most of the day and am finally getting a couple of minutes to add my thoughts here.
The weekend was one of the best times I've had in a long, long time! To be able to meet up with such wonderful ladies and see Johnny up close, being his beautiful, humble, funny self was almost too much! The excitement just kept building until he walked out on that stage and then it was all I could do to not go completely bonkers. There were a couple of moments during the opening montage of his movie clips where I let out a couple of audible sighs that the woman sitting next to me heard and gave me a funny look at. Obviously, she was not smitten with JDOCD.
Everyone has really described the Tribute and movie experience so well that I don't have much to add. The movie is incredible, Johnny's performance has got to be the pinacle of his career so far. Very powerful and moving. I can not wait to see it again.
Dharma_bum, KYwoman and DepplySmitten ~ it was SO WONDERFUL to meet all of you! And DITHOT, Gypsylee and LIz ~ once again, a great time getting together! I can't wait for the next get-together!
