Walk Like a Man

Many of us guys from my age group (era) grew up with John Wayne, Roy Rogers, Tarzan, Superman, The Lone Ranger and many more action heroes.  You get the idea I am talking about growing up with action movies, television, comic books, and later in early adult years we transitioned to, Hawaii Five-O, Star Trek, Star Wars, and the chest thumping action continued.

Somewhere along the way we married refined young ladies that were exposed by their mothers to Romance Novels (not all of them, but some of them), and daytime soap operas (also romance loaded).  Speaking only for my relationship, then our two worlds came together (collide).  My wife never tries to force me to do anything I don’t want to do; she is way too smart for that.  Instead she gives me enough time to come around to her way of thinking. 

Together as a couple we share one very special trait; my mission in life is to see that she is happy, and her goal is pretty much the same as mine but opposite.  She wants me to be happy. I don’t want to get sentimental but our life story is almost like the short story, “The Gift of the Magi.”  She would make a sacrifice for my happiness and I would do the same for her happiness.

I believe that many women would like it if their men brought a little more culture into their married lives.  I’m talking about a trip to the big city to catch a Broadway Play, or even an Opera performance.  Just imagine having the occasional night out where you both get dressed to the max to enjoy a cultural event (maybe even get transported by Limo).

Well if the truth be told my wife and I don’t do as much of that, as I might lead you to believe.  I’ve jokingly said before about me, that if it were not for cottage cheese, I wouldn’t have enough culture in my life (ha-ha-ha).  Approximately three years ago one of our sons invited us to a play in Seattle, and actually purchased the tickets before he even told us about it, feeling pretty sure that we would go along with the plan.

It was very easy for us to agree to attend because this entire musical was going to be all about our favorite music (of our time no less).  The fact is I still remember every moment of that performance, and every song that was performed. I was reminded of this musical because once again they are returning to Seattle for a one month performance.  I am of course talking about The Jersey Boys.  The story of Frankie Vallie and the Four Seasons. If you enjoyed listening to Sherry, Walk like a Man, and the rest of their repertoire, you won’t be disappointed.  If you don’t live near Seattle, don’t worry they are touring the country, try to catch it if you can, it’s worth the time and effort.  The best is yet to come….
