  1. May make it to Vegas this year to see Wayne’s show. Saw him in Owensboro,Ky. every March. Gave him feathers with a medicine wheel attached. 2nd night of his concerts, I was placed at a round table with 2 men and 1 woman. She asked me if i liked Wayne and i said yes, since I was 17 and had just came in from riding my horse. It was winter and I had just taken off my boots, sock cap etc. My mother was fixing porkchops and told me to go wash up for supper. Ed Sullivan show was on and he introduced Wayne Newton. When I heard him sing and looked into his eyes, I had to go and hear him. I felt that I knew him. I told my mother that someday I would find that cute boy and give him a big hug and kiss his cheek. It has been 57 years and I still have not got to do this. The man and woman said they went to Vegas a lot and would pay my plane gare, my hotel, and I could see all of Wayne Newtons shows that I wished to see. I could have gone with them but I did not know these nice strangers so I said I can’t go. I was scared they might try to hurt me. In 2116 I finally realized it was Wayne Neeton who had placed me at that table and told them to ask me to Vegas. PaulaMarie Weaver even took me to his hotel in St. LOUIS MO.. and told me Wayne could not get me pregnant. I thought to myself I know karate and have a brown belt. I did not get to talk with him as he was at the Fox in St Louis mp. where we decorated his dressing room that St. PatricksDay in1992.
