  CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE CLAY KIND
« on: February 29, 2004, 02:12:02 AM »

I had a close encounter of the Clay kind. 

I had made this very large pinwheel that looked like a flower and put it on a stick and had clay's name at the top so it would be really tall.  After all my seats once again were not that close.  I needed something he could notice back further. We knew he saw it - who couldn't notice it?

Anyway after the concert was over (this was the Miami concert), we went over to where the buses were.  People were waiting there hoping for a glimpse of who else but our Clay.

I was about to give up because I really had to go to meet my husband when Clay walks out.  Everyone was screaming.  Kelly had previously walked out but went into the bus.  Clay with his wonderful caring compassionate spirit came over to the crowd. 

As he made his way over to us. (Of course there was a chain link fence between us), my daughter yelled out, "Clay we made this for you" as she held up my pinwheel.  He said, "you made this for me?"  and she said, "Yes for you, but my mom made it and pointed to me.  He then looked at me with those beautiful eyes and great smile and shook my hand and took the pinwheel.  I told him he was great.

It was such a little thing, but like he has said, shaking hands with 80 fans may be his day but to me just that moment meant my whole day.  May be even my whole year!

This close encounter, even for a small moment, means so much to me and made him even more real to me.

I just got home and it is 1:45am but I can't sleep anyway so I thought I would share.  I am quite excited. :D  :D  :D  :D  :D

I hope you all have great Clay experiences.

Girls you are so lucking.  I am going on March 8th and my girlfriend Linda and I are meeting up with some other claymaniacs.  I hope we have some luck maybe checking out the buses or try to get a glimpse of him after the concert outside.  To be able to talk to him like you did, OMG, I know I would be on cloud nine for months, maybe years.  It really sounded like all went well last night.

Flaken...What a wonderful moment for you.  You said it was such a little thing but it wasn't.  It was a big deal because it always shows us how much Clay loves and appreciates all of us, HIS FANS.  I would be on cloud nine for the rest of my life.  Just to shake his hand, look into those gorgeous eyes and see that smile that lights up the world takes my breath away. 
ALWAYS TREASURE THAT MOMENT.  I'M HAPPY FOR YOU AND SO VERY JEALOUS.

COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS TO MARCH 10TH!!!!!

 ;D ;D ;D ;D

Oh Flaken!  :D  You lucky girl!  Daughter and I headed back to the hotel now she's elbowing me and saying why didn't we think of that!  What a great night.  It was nice meeting you and your daughter and Bozena and Bocaqueen & hubby.

I wish I'd been on the flight with Bozena as I just know that Raleigh will be the house rocker!

Bozena, are  you going to hang around Raleigh for the Clayfest which is that weekend of the 5th?  Wish we could go. :

You are so lucky that you got to shake his wonerful hands! Maybe me and my friend Ashley can convince her mom to stay after the concert is over to do the same thing you did? We have school in the morning so I dunno! I hope so!!

SO NEAR AND YET SO FAR!!!!!!!

i AM OVERJOYED FOR YOU fLAKEN but I am heartsick since you told me.  I wanted to go over there with you and everyone else wanted to leave saying we'd never see Clay. 
Even when we reached the parking garage, I kept standing there looking thru my binocuars, hoping and praying.

I can't stop thinking about the wonderful day we all had meeting up with the other Claymaniacs and experiencing Clay together. 

Today I have watched 2 hours of videos that Bozena lent me and I had never seen most of it.  I sat there smiling crying and cheering (as if I didn't know what was going to be the end results on AI)  What does this man do to us????

I actual smacked my poor hubby in the arm about 50 times saying Flaken saw him and you didn't let me go over there too. (boo hoo forever...)

I am speechless right now.   I can't believe that I find myself crying from missing having more and more of Clay.

I hardly slept last night because of the excitement but you are right Angela, it sweetened my dreams, and this has really made my weekend. 

Her - It was really nice to meet you and your daughter also. 

I think we all had a really great day.

We must thank Pamela for the website otherwise we would never have met each other.  Not only is this website so great but also the fact that Pamela knows how to divide up these threads and forums so we find each other at the right time and at the right place.

Bocaqueen don't forget I need to see the videos - that sounds so great.

Still flying high --- Flakin

Flakin, what a treat for you and how nice of you to share your special moment with us!!! I think if he actually spoke to me I would drop in a dead faint right then and there :oops: He is such a true artist, he really takes the time to show his fans how much he appreciates them. It takes a special kinda person to go through all he has in the past few days and still be so caring of others. OMC we love you  ;D

Bozena, thank you so much for keeping me on the phone throughout the entire concert.  Thank goodness I experienced the concert in Miami or I would have been quite confused as to what was happening there.  Unfortunately the screaming and the speakers overpowered everything, BUT....just hearing whatever I could of OMC thrilled me once again.  I PRAYED so hard, Dear Jesus, P-L-E-A-S-E let Clay take bozenas phone from her so it will be ME he talks to...."God was off duty last night (LOL)  That lucky Jody person.....I was going to tell Clay to give you a big kiss Bozena...sorry it didn't happen for either of us.  We are all so jealous of you right now that you got round 2 of Clay and going for #3..  What a fan you are!
