Hi everybody. Thanks to those of you who attended My Birthday Bash this past weekend. For those of you who didn't you really missed something! My poetic Brother Demetrious Foradas came in from Ohio for the event. I have not seen him since before his kids were born and he brought them to meet me.We all had a great time and knowing that D is a top level poet and his ex-wife is a highly trained professional dancer and their kids are over 10 years old. With that much training from their parents I figured "HOW COULD THE KIDS NOT BE TOP QUALITY PROFESSIONAL LEVEL ARTISTS THEMSELVES?" so I put them into the show too. D's son George actually did a great job at his first time on the mic. His daughter Vivian got stage fright and didn't perform in the showcase but she DID do a dance routine at the Gallery One Fine Arts Venue which has a bi monthly series that I consider my "home base " here in Rochester, NY. I was hoping to introduce them to the gallery owner while they were in town. While D talked with the gallery owner Vivian did a little Tap Dancing routine on the vacant stage as we waited. She was REALY good! So I made a decision and closed the show with a dance routine hoping that since she was a dancer she might overcome her stage fright and join me in the dance. It never happened but her brother did join me.
As we closed up D. came over and said " Larry, I've been trying to get George to jump on stage like that for over 6 years now! You did it in 5 minutes: that's incredible! I've got video of the dance and I'll put it on your computer as soon as we get home!" Well, we fell asleep but D, George and Vivian and I did get up at 3:00 a. m. on Sunday to put the Video on my computer . For some reason the video didn't transfer to the computer , but he WAS able to upload all the photographs he took for the event and promised to send me an e-mail with the video as soon as he got back from Canada which was there next destination on this trip. We went back to bed and work up again at 8:00 A.M.
ate blueberry pie for breakfast and took a "family photo" Including the three of them and my parents and myself. D. promised to send a copy of that too. It was the most incredible experience of
Thanks for the Birthday Present D, Gorge and Vivian! See you all soon!
