Guess it’s the “Jovimama” in me.
As for the Bonjovifamily, it was an idea formed out of the friendship and camaradarie many of us experienced a few years ago. Although bonds have waivered and even completely broken for some, the idea is still a beautiful one.
I was reminded recently by a new blogger that “us old time bloggers” need to remember that newer bloggers may not understand some of our references and it would be helpful for us to explain things better. Point made and taken. 
I was also reminded that although “old members of the family” were lovely, new ones can be too. 
For the longest time I think I was holding onto the time when we first established the Bonjovifamily but like everything, people change and that’s okay. I miss several of the old bloggers, some left the fandom for reasons of their own, some are still here but don’t interact like they used to, some lost faith in the band, one is gone not by choice and some just  lost the connection they once felt for the concept of “The Bonjovifamily” and that too is okay. 
A beautiful thing  that I have recently realized is that there are many new people here that embrace the idea of the Bonjovifamily. People who share the same enthusiasm and who have cultivated feelings for people that they talk to here. It has reminded me of how special those earlier times were and it has rejuvenated my excitement to come on here and talk to people who share a special love for this band, similar to my own. 
So whether you’re with us or not, the BONJOVIFAMILY bonds cannot seem to be broken. Whether they be with the old originals or with you new lovely people, I will always do my part to help provide a place where we can all feel wanted and appreciated.

Everything reminds me of Jon Bon Jovi… #14

Now in case anyone is hanging back there…thinking about it but not participating…
Understand that I have to face the wrath of BabyJ tonight because I put my foot down and refused to go to the gym with her.
Yes. Refused to go to the gym. Somehow I have been forced to recognize that this is not a bad idea. The going to the gym thing. Believe me…words I never thought I would have said before. However, BabyJ finally after much cajoling finally got me there and believe it or not it feels good. I know. Unbelievable.
Anyway, she is an ardent work out queen and I am a newbie and after two days in a row this weekend I decided STAPH!!!!!
Every second day is better for me being not old, just older…
Soooooooooooooooooo…think of what I will face later when she gets home. The looks of disappointment. The chastising…. the guilt…
POST ME SOMETHING FOR THE PAIN!

It is a sad thing when a Bon Jovi Blogger has to ask me what do I mean by play…

Wellllll….

Once upon a time not so long ago, there were alot of Bon Jovi Bloggers…our family…that looked forward to coming on here and conversing through posts and sometimes we’d choose a theme like "Jon Bon Jovi’s Beautiful Eyes Night” and then we’d post all the best photos we had of Jon’s eyes…

Hell…I declare it “JON BON JOVI’S BEAUTIFUL EYES NIGHT”

ANYONE want to play? Anyone?????

Free night to myself AND…

and all of you of course!
