This weekend was exciting as I met Gene, Shannon, Sophie and Nick Simmons at the Boulevard Casino in Coquitlam, BC.
It was a “Show & Shine” car show with old beautiful cars and music and fun stuff to eat & buy.
There was a huge line up to get a picture with Gene and his family when I got there. I probably would have had to wait for about 4 hours in the rain to get a quick picture with them and then be pushed out of the way for the next person.
So instead I waited in the crowd and eventually got to the front row to take some pics. When I got to the front and was holding my chihuahua in my hands Sophie and Shannon saw my dog and said, “That looks exactly like our dog!” then Gene and Nick looked and smiled and laughed a bit.
That was so awesome for me as I seemed to get more attention that the people that stood in line forever.
Gene gave his usual “rock on” with his left hand for all the pics while Shannon and Sophie posed in their beautiful shoes and smiles.
Nick seemed to be having fun although he seemed a little awkward with his picture being taken. It must be so weird to be a celebrity and everyone wants to take your picture 24/7 when you think you are just “normal”.
Gene and Shannon seemed to be very happy in their “marriage” as I studied their body language a bit and there didn’t seem to be any problems in their relationship. Perhaps it is all for their reality show, “Gene Simmons Family Jewels“. They seemed to be in love which was very cute.
The only thing that was a downer at this event was that this security guy kept standing in the way of my camera (the one with the “Ping” hat on in my pics) and every time I went to take a picture he would stand in front of my perfect shot. Also I only had my iPhone on me so the quality of pictures wasn’t too great either.
The Simmons family was awesome and I hope to meet them again in the future..
