BJ here with your special New Years eve edition of the 3 W’s
This year has been a pretty crazy one for me, which started with me in bed sicker then I have ever been with the swine flu.
From becoming KFLY’s radio station rock mom of 2014 to shooting the Ducks football game a dream come true, it was a year of unforgettables for me!
I bought myself a bass and even learned a song on it, went to Motley Crue’s final tour met Kip Winger, the Bullet boys and Florida Georgia line and flew in a B17 bomber. I even wrote my own column for Eugene Daily News.
I made many good friends, there were also some lost who will be missed and always remembered. Adena, Alex, Ron,Terry and Bitboy this column is dedicated to you!
So today I went out and found a dress, a pair of sparkly high heels and am ready for the night!
Party hat on and noisemaker in hand im headed for Happy Hour on River Rd. in Eugene to ring in the New Year with ” Dragstrip Superstar.” Derek Zane, Jeff Blaser, and Scott Johansen are sure to launch us into 2015 with a rock and roll party we wont soon forget!
This year like every other year I’m making a New Years resolution. This years resolution is …”wait for it”…. no its not a gym membership or a diet. I’m gonna be more adventurous…do things I never thought I would and take as many band photos as I can!!!
So tonight I’m gonna party like it’s 1999
Being very claustrophobic it took everything I had to crawl through a little doorway into the back of that B17 bomber, hold my breath and cover my eyes and wait…. we were in the air in seconds and when I could finally open my eyes and breath again I felt as though I could take on the world up there.
So with a heavy heart I will bid farewell to 2014 ,
and as if I was again climbing into the bomber and into the unpredictable and new
I’m gonna take a deep breath …open my eyes and with great expectations soar into 2015
heres to all of you, my readers and friends that made 2014 a year that will be remembered.
