Man oh Man I’m seriously turning into the worst blogger ever, this work thing (which I’m grateful to have) is getting in the way of finishing these Viva posts. Sorry!!!
Okay here is my Friday at Viva.
POOL DAY! Normally this is not when I would have gone to the pool, I would have usually been seen on the Sunday when everyone else goes but this year I had a serious conflict this year. A favorite Toronto band “Tennessee Voodoo Coupe” had their set at 1:00pm on the Sunday and it was mandatory that I go and support the band. So my husband and my friends trucked it to the pool on the Friday instead and I was super thankful that Tom Ingram created a pool party for every day (with the AquaSonics playing good surf music I might add) so that I was not missing all the fun that is Sunday at the Pool.

We stayed at the pool for about 3 hours and by the time we had left, I was feeling no pain and I really don’t know how it happened…oh right buckets of beer and my husband going MIA. Hey someone had to drink them!
Off I went for a nap time till it became night time…opps hehehe 🙂
After my nap, I changed into my outfit for the night (reproduction sailor pants, saddle shoes and a cute 1940’s like top from Target) and headed to the Ballroom for another night of amazing music. I saw the “Phat Cat Swingers” who I loved and the band was the kind of music that was perfect for me to get my Lindy Hop on as well. Woo hoo! Lil’Mo & the Dynaflos was next and they were really really great. THEN the act of the night was “The Blue Caps with Graham Fenton” a tribute to Gene Vincent. All I can say was….WOW! Such a treat to have seen this performance.
Now for pics from my evening…..never really happened as most of us were having too much fun dancing to take pics. Insert another “opps” lol! But there were a couple of pictures that did manage to get taken.
So there is Friday at VIVA 16. Stay tuned for Saturday..the Car Show and Little Richard!
