A bit of #TBT action today as the above pic of hubby Michael came up as a reminder on Facebook today and it totally took me back in time to when we first met.
It was 1994. Michael and I had just begun to date long distance after meeting in Minneapolis at the recording session for the revival of Hello, Dolly! with Carol Channing bound for the Great White Way (my first Broadway show).
Michael was the 25-year-old vice president of publicity for the record label that handled the recording.
A couple of weeks into dating I realized I didn’t have a pic of Michael. Remember, this was pre-internet days.
He sent me a test polaroid pic from a photo shoot he’d just overseen for a new album, Slow Hot Wind, by Janis Siegel of the Manhattan Transfer and jazz pianist Fred Hersh.
I still have the polaroid in my office.
And I loved the album when it came out.
p.s. Michael and I celebrate our 24th anniversary this month, which is pretty cool 🙂
