Ashleigh was able to go see another one of her favorite bands, Rascal Flatts. Not only did she get to go to the concert but she also was able to meet them backstage.
No surprise to anyone that knows us, but we are always late. And now that my wife has to get herself ready and then get Ashleigh ready, we are now usually really late. But on the day of the concert my wife had everyone ready right on time. That was before we got to the freeway. The freeway was backed up for miles. What made me mad was that I had a plan to avoid the accidents they mentioned on the radio that were closer to Cincinnati but they did not report this accident.
We went about 5 miles in twenty five minutes and I knew we were in deep trouble. We were supposed to be in line for the Meet and Greet at 7:15 and it was becoming obvious we were not going to make it. But luck was with us as we arrived at the line at the gate at 7:30 and there were still people in line. Luckily they were having two sessions and we had made it! With Gary LeVox and Jay DeMarcus hailing from Columbus I think there were extra people which helped us not miss meeting these great guys.
You can see by Ashleigh’s great smile she was loving meeting these guys. It would have been very much human nature for them to rush through the their obligations like the Meet and Greet to spend time with their visiting family members. But, instead they took their time and really welcomed Ash and made her feel good. Jay even gave Ash a little blessing as we started to leave.
Their music is just great and the show was excellent. Ashleigh had a great time. Being up in her chair so long is very tiring for her and she slept a lot the next day but she signed that it was worth it.
There were a couple of caring people that made this trip possible for Ashleigh and I really want to thank them for her and from the people that love her. (but I won’t name names to protect their inbox)
One thing for sure is if Ashleigh keeps this up you can forget Kevin Bacon, it is going to be Six Degrees of Ashleigh Szabo.
