I’d like to consider Renna a bit of a roving reporter for sending in these photo from last night’s meet and greet with Joe and Lyndsay. She reports Joe is “a stand up guy…very sweet!”
I asked Renna for “some meat to fill a pot” though I meant ‘meat to fill a post’ – We both think the first version is funnier and just as applicable! Here are her words:
“When I arrived at 6:20, they were already there inside the Nectar Lounge area. They started promptly at 7:00 and stayed until almost 9:30! There were still plenty of people in line, but the cut off was really 9 o’clock. [The Casino had] a line forming through the middle of it to get to the lounge area where Joe & Lindsey were set up.”
“I thought I would muster up the courage to say a few things to him when it was my turn, but that didn’t happen! I was a giddy little school girl. I wanted to say something witty or mention AlcideHerveaux.com (the contest and the poem) but all I was doing was smiling! Sorry;( Actually, I had a perma-smile! Not only could I not speak, which is unusual for me, but I was shaking.”
He was very nice and patient. He stood for photos and never seemed annoyed with the slew of people there waiting in line, greeting each person with the same respect and courtesy. I’d say a couple hundred maybe showed up??I think it was a good turnout being that I only heard one radio commercial and saw one local T.V. commercial. It was truly a great time!
When Renna saw this last photo she writes “I felt bad later..didn’t know Lindsay was even trying to get in the photo. I totally forgot she was even there. She had to reach over and give me her photo! Poor thing! They were both very nice and accommodating.” Whew! I think it must be hard playing second fiddle to Joe. Way to keep the smile Lindsay!
I also was told that Abby, another contestant, is one of the women in the background of this last image – let’s call them stalking lionesses – look at her eyes glow! Are they were-Lions perhaps?
Stay tuned for more Alcide/Joe news and future contests!
