GUYS & DOLLS...

~ Rat Pack Plus 3~

Thanks to my motto Where There’s a Will There’s Renee, I managed to meet Frank, Dean, and Sammy….well, more or less. And, I even got my 86 year-old Great Aunty and her friend Gracie into the act…

What do you do when the music carries you away so much that you dream of meeting Frank Sinatra, even though you know he passed away over a decade ago? Well, to begin with, since this is the 21st Century, you Google the words “Rat Pack Tribute.” Then you find out when the Frank, Dean and Sammy look-a-likes are coming your way. You make sure you get tickets, and don’t leave the line until you know you have good seats. You plan to put your Great Aunty, or any cute elderly relative, in one of the seats. You arrive the night of the show and carry on as if you were in Vegas, say The Sands Casino, circa 1960 (where the Rat Pack Ruled). You Scream, shout, dance, even with the handsome man next to you. You sing every word to every song, and stand up and cheer for old time sake. You thoroughly enjoy the show so much that you manage to get noticed by important people that might be able to introduce you to Frank, in this case “Big Mike,” (who stands a the back of the theatre, keeping an eye on things).

After the show you fix your Great Aunty’s hair, refresh her lipstick, and head over to introduce her to Big Mike. You know no one can resist Aunty’s genuine goodness and her fully open heart. You kibitz for a while and casually ask Mr. Mike if you can meet Frank and the boys. Or, you might have Aunty ask, if you think your chances are slim. In this case, before I could even get the question out, Big Mike was already bringing us over to meet the crooners. “Come on Aunty,” he said, as we approached the stars and the crowd parted. When we reached the legends, Big Mike started posing us, and taking pictures himself! It might have helped that I sincerely gushed over the fabulous show. I meant it when I said, “I haven’t had this much fun in years.” The evening was a complete and total nostalgic blast. And there were priceless moments (thanks to lighting, make-up, mood, and certain movements) when you felt like you were seeing the real thing!

So, in keeping up with the blog’s motto, How to Live Well, Have Fun and Remain Ageless in Any EconomyI must ask>What did you do last night while Our 86 year old Great Aunty was out flirting with Frank, Dean, Sammy, and their Pinky Rings…

~AGELESS TIP OF THE WEEK: Don’t get old, get out!
