Last night at the conclusion of the tour a man probably 50 yrs. old walked back toward me and handed me a $20.oo tip!
He said, "This is for all of the energy that you put into this, even after all of these years."
I knew there was more than just a couple of reasons I like an older audience versus the 14 yr. old little girls (who deafen me with their impromptu screaming)
Mere verbal compliments weigh heavilly on my happiness factor too though.
